Three more 'Big Brother' housemates up for eviction

Intrigue in the 'Big Brother' house reaches its weekly crescendo today as another housemate is booted out.

Three contestants are up for eviction tonight – Dubliner Caoimhe, Londoner Shabby and medical student Sunshine, from Peterborough.

But one other housemate will also venture out from the safety of the 'Big Brother' studio this evening.

Posh boy Ben, from London, will be made to perform a stand-up comedy routine in front of host Davina McCall and the 'Big Brother' audience.

The task, part of the celebrations for International Joke Day, will see Ben writing and performing a comedy routine.

But his performance will also serve as a punishment for failing a task during the show, which has now been running for three weeks.

Writer Ben, 30, was tasked with secretly carrying out an arm wrestling and street slang task by the Tree Of Temptation in the 'Big Brother' bathroom.

When he failed, the tree punished him by ordering him to get himself elected as the stand-up in the latest shopping budget challenge.

Ben’s housemates rumbled that he had been secretly chatting to the tree but he tried to put them off the scent by fabricating cover stories.
