Housemates 'live like pigs': Big Brother reject Jackie

Sylvester Stallone’s mother declared that her Big Brother housemates “lived like pigs”, after she became the first celebrity to be evicted.

Sylvester Stallone’s mother declared that her Big Brother housemates “lived like pigs”, after she became the first celebrity to be evicted.

Hollywood astrologer Jackie Stallone, who claims to be 71, smiled when the public vote was announced last night.

Racing pundit John McCririck, who had also been up for eviction, held his head in his hands when he learned he was to stay in the house.

Jackie became the ninth celebrity in the Big Brother house when she made a surprise entrance on Monday night.

After the public vote was announced, Jackie told John: “It serves you right. You should stay.” She added: “I am so happy. Now how do I get out of here?”

She later told presenter Davina McCall that the housemates “lived like pigs”.

Describing the Big Brother experience, she said: “I am a total wreck. I need a vacation. This was a nightmare.”

Jackie said meeting her former daughter-in-law Brigitte Nielsen again was “the only thing good to come out of it”.

She had earlier told Big Brother: “We have both done wrong to each other but I have the utmost respect for her and I am sorry she is not still in the family.”

Jackie described John as “truly cruel”, called Caprice an “airhead” and admitted she did not like Lisa I’Anson.

But she praised 19-year-old boyband star Kenzie, saying: “He is a darling. He is just like a baby.”

Jackie was nominated for eviction by six housemates including Brigitte, who said she did not want a return to the misery which followed her short marriage to Rocky star Sylvester Stallone.

Jackie had earlier claimed she was determined to win the reality television show, saying: “I intend to win. I’ve never lost anything in my life.”

But she later fell out with John McCririck, saying she was in a house “full of morons”.

Jackie was not meant to be eligible for the first round of nominations but producers changed their minds after Germaine Greer left.

Bez and Kenzie are now joint favourites to win at 15/8, according to bookies William Hill. Jeremy comes next at 5/1, with Brigitte at 11/2; John McCririck at 6/1, Caprice 16/1 and Lisa the 33/1 outsider.
