Happy Mondays star Bez today reacted angrily after he was nominated for eviction by his Celebrity Big Brother housemates.

He received five votes while curmudgeonly racing pundit John McCririck had four so both will face the public vote this week.

But while John thanked his fellow celebrities for picking him to leave Bez stormed off after he heard the news.

He told them: “You’re all a bunch of tossers and I won’t be seeing you when I get out of here.”

Brigitte Nielsen, Sylvester Stallone’s ex-wife, nominated John because of “the way he has been treating housemates” and his “way of speaking against women”.

She also voted for Bez, saying: “Bez is a difficult human being. There’s something wrong with him. Even though he’s making an effort, he’s not very happy in here.”

She added that he did less around the house than the others and that “he’s nervy, he’s not at ease”.

Model Caprice said Bez was “ready to go” while she said John had been two-faced while ex-Holby City star Jeremy Edwards said Bez was being “loopy” and “stressed”.

John voted for Brigitte saying she was “childlike” and “wrapped up in herself”, accusing her of “harping on about her 26-year-old lover in Italy, her new toy”.

Meanwhile the housemates were today woken at 6am after a heavy night of partying to be told of their new task – a two-day new age detox plan.

The house has been transformed into a “Rejuvenation Retreat” complete with wall drapes, sofa throws, and dream catcher decorations.

During the task each housemate must wear robes, socks, and sandals provided for them which they can only remove at night or while in the bath, shower, or sauna.

They were told to choose a new name which is “closer to nature” and to write it on the front of their robe.

John will be known as Mars while model Caprice becomes Kharma and boyband star Kenzie will be called Laughing Junior.

Brigitte is now Matti and Jeremy is Sun God while DJ Lisa I’Anson will be called Happy Wu and Bez is Rainmaker.

They have been banned from lighting up cigars or cigarettes except in a special smoking area, and even there can only do so when they hear a smoking announcement.

A glockenspiel sound will let them know they can start puffing away and a second one will instruct them to stop.

Housemates must also get out of bed and dress within a minute whenever a gong sounds, which could be at any time of day.

They will be provided with “delicious wholesome treats” but also “required to enjoy them immediately”.

The group will also be set compulsory “journeys” with accompanying rules, which they will be told of shortly before they begin.

The housemates will be allowed up to three “fails” per day in order to pass the task.

If it is completed successfully they will be rewarded with “great inner wealth but even greater outward prosperity”.
