All the Big Brother housemates will be up for eviction on Friday after bisexual Vanessa landed them in trouble.
Derek Laud, the 40-year-old Tory, and Sam, the 23-year-old marketing student who has been in tears and threatened to leave after clashing with some of the group, received the most nominations.
But Big Brother producers decided to put all 12 housemates up for the boot as revenge on Vanessa for breaking one of its cardinal rules – discussing the nominations.
The twist led 19-year-old student Vanessa to admit to the others what she had done.
Vanessa broke the rule when she told Lesley who she intended to nominate.
Last night Big Brother read out the housemates’ names one by one.
When the news sank in that they were all up for the chop, they looked glum.
Derek and Sam had tied in the unpopularity stakes, each receiving six votes during the second week of nominations.
Bookmakers now believe Sam is the red hot favourite to go on Friday.
Ladbrokes make her the 5-4 favourite, followed by Italian Roberto at 4-1 and Lesley and Science at 6-1.
Ladbrokes spokesman Warren Lush said: “Sam ought to start packing her suitcase and make-up bag now, she is red hot favourite for the chop.
“The only question is whether she’ll be wearing her bikini when she greets the crowds outside.”
Derek was nominated by Anthony, Kemal, Makosi, Maxwell, Saskia and Science.
Sam has received the most nominations, 10 in the two weeks, so far.
During this week’s round, she was named for an early exit by hairdresser Craig, Derek, Lesley, Zimbabwe-born Makosi, Roberto and Vanessa.
The day’s nominations drama left all the housemates drained as they retired to bed in record time last night.
Everyone was tucked in bed by 2.15am after they were woken yesterday at 8am for the ongoing A&E task.
