Mutya Buena walks out of BB house

Singer Mutya Buena walked out of the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house just hours after 'Shameless' actress Tina Malone was given her marching orders.

Singer Mutya Buena walked out of the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house just hours after 'Shameless' actress Tina Malone was given her marching orders.

The former Sugababe, along with TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson, Malone and pop star Michelle Heaton, completed the all-female line-up for the chop.

But after it was announced that Malone had been voted out instead of her, Buena ranted: "No way am I staying a day longer, I've already told them I don't care what I lose. If they want to fight me they can, I'm not unpacking my suitcase and that's it. I'm going."

At the end of Friday night's show, host Davina McCall had said that Buena would probably leave the house.

Later in the Diary Room, Buena said she had been thinking about leaving for several days and had made her mind up that if she wasn't evicted she would walk out.

Buena, who has a three-year-old daughter Tahlia-Maya, said she didn't want to spend another day away from her family.

The singer walked out of the house at 11.28pm, saying: "Thank you for the experience and making me realise what is important.

"I'm after a good night's sleep and want to go home."

Malone was evicted after receiving 39% of the total votes cast.

The outspoken Liverpudlian, 46, who plays Mimi Maguire in the Channel 4 show, was the bookies' favourite for the chop, with odds of just 1/10 at bookmakers Ladbrokes.
