'Big Brother' 2016: Jayne Connery Escapes As House Is Evacuated

'It's all got a bit too much... the walls are closing in.'

‘Big Brother’ contestant Jayne Connery made a break for it when the house was evacuated due to flooding.

In Friday night’s (24 June) episode, the group are told they have to leave the house immediately, when water begins pouring through the ceiling.

However, things take an interesting turn when Jayne - who the night before had been pulled away from a tense situation by Big Brother following a blazing row with Natalie Rowe - seized the opportunity to make a break for it.

While the rest of the housemates are moved to the ‘Other’ house, Jayne manages to escape, with Ryan Ruckledge pondering: “What is she going to do, go to the train station?”

Despite making her way out of the house, Jayne eventually makes her return, and tells Big Brother in the Diary Room: “It’s all got a bit too much. Lots has gone on over the last two days. The walls are closing in.

“I thought to myself, ‘I only have to go out that door and I won’t feel isolated anymore. By going out that door, I lose, and I don’t want to lose because if I am to walk out that door, I want the public to vote me out.”

This marks the second time that a housemate has escaped from the ‘BB’ compound, with twin sisters Victoria and Emma Jensen breaking out during the first week in the house.

Ultimately, Victoria decided not to return, with Emma now completing her ‘BB’ journey alone.

See the aftermath of Jayne’s escape in Friday’s ‘BB’, kicking off at 9pm on Channel 5, which will also see either Charlie, Hughie or Natalie given the boot in the second live eviction.
