'Big Brother' officials today announced a double eviction from the house on Wednesday during the semi-final of the final series of the show.
Michelle Bass, “nasty” Nick Bateman and Vanessa Feltz all face the boot after being nominated by their fellow housemates.
After the eviction there will be seven contestants left to battle each other for the Ultimate Big Brother crown, which will be awarded during Friday’s grand finale.
Yesterday housemate Brian Dowling had to plunge his hands into a pile of nettles today in a bid to win contestants a party for the evening.
During the tasks housemates had to complete a series of uncomfortable challenges without making a sound.
When Brian entered the task room he was ordered by Big Brother to find a “needle in a nettle stack” in three minutes.
The former cabin crew supervisor for Ryanair pulled off his hat in frustration and screamed when the three minutes was up.
The 32-year-old, who won the show in 2001, is the bookies favourite to win the series. Bookmakers William Hill have him priced at 2/5. Chantelle Houghton is in the running to come second at 9/4 while Nikki Grahame is third at 12/1.
During other silent tasks, Bass was tickled by Big Brother 4 housemate Jon Tickle, Feltz and Houghton played catch with a cactus and Bateman crawled across 300 upturned hairbrushes.
After all housemates successfully kept their mouths closed during the challenges they were rewarded with a rock party.
The contestants were given costumes, blow-up guitars, food and alcohol as a reward.
