Tania, Steph and Nush await the Big Bro boot

The three girls remaining in the Big Brother house were all sweating it out today as they waited to find out which one of them was for the chop.

The three girls remaining in the Big Brother house were all sweating it out today as they waited to find out which one of them was for the chop.

Tania, Steph and Nush were all nominated for eviction. When one leaves tonight the two remaining girls will be out numbered two to one by boys Gos, Ray, Scott and Cameron.

Tania has been feeling increasingly insecure and complained that she no longer felt like a part of the gang.

“I feel like I don’t fit in any more. I feel like I’m not one of the group,” she said.

The 22-year-old was also caught praying that she be the one to be evicted today, saying she loved being in the house but she needed to go now.

Meanwhile, Scottish straight man Cameron left the Africa Big Brother house yesterday after his four-day jaunt there, just as Gaetano, the man he was swapped with, was put on a plane back to Johannesburg.

The Ugandan charmer, who spiced up life in the BBUK house by flirting with Nush and upsetting Tania by calling her “Piggy”, departed at 1.55pm yesterday.

Before going he and his new friends drank a cider toast.

He left a photo of himself to remind them of his stay and gave lollipops to the girls.

“It’s been fantastic,” he told them.

As they raised their glasses Gaetano offered some last words of wisdom. “Don’t take things too personally,” he said.

In the garden, yoga loving blonde Nush stumbled slightly into Gaetano.

“Is it the drink or me?” he asked her, and she replied: “It’s you making me swoon.”

Gaetano has described his stay in the house as “short and sweet” but probably was not too upset to be leaving – he has complained that the British house is boring.

“They are so very reserved here. It’s not like that in Africa. There are more free spirits there. We don’t have so many inhibitions,” he told Big Brother.

He has already spiced up the African version of the show by romping under the blankets with fellow contestant Abby.

Cameron was given three minutes to say his farewells to his new African buddies, saying he had had “a magic time”.

Ghanaian Sammi gave him his favourite brightly coloured shirt and Mwisho presented him with his own wooden carved ashtray.

He said: “I know you don’t smoke, but this will make you think of us.”

There was no word on when Cameron might re-enter the house.
