Ulrika proud to be last celebrity 'sister'

Ulrika Jonsson is the only female celebrity left in the running for tonight’s final of 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

Ulrika Jonsson is the only female celebrity left in the running for tonight’s final of 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The public will choose whether to award this year’s crown to Ben Adams, Coolio, Verne Troyer, Ulrika Jonsson or Terry Christian in a live eviction show tonight.

La Toya Jackson and Tommy Sheridan were taken out of the running on Wednesday when they became the fourth and fifth celebrities to be booted off.

Jonsson was asked by Big Brother how it felt to be the last woman standing.

She replied: “I am proud and delighted that there is a woman left in the house, and I’m doin’ it for the sisters.”

But Coolio whispered to Troyer: “Hey, did you see Ulrika’s face when they said Toya?

“She was happy... the point is, she was happy to see her go, she never liked her cuz.”

Housemates have been getting crafty, making each other farewell gifts for their latest task.

Adams made a model of a rocket-powered scooter, while Coolio made a “poster” for Jonsson.

“I think Ulrika can sometimes be a bit stiff and it seems to me she needs to get out and party a bit more and needs to take advantage of her celebrityness, to go out and have a few drinks and get ’bucky’,” laughed Coolio, as he held up his gift and demonstrated getting “bucky” by jiggling his backside.

“Cool your jets daddio,” said Christian, before getting up to present his gift to Coolio – a hat.

Jonsson made an amulet with her face on for Christian.

“I liked you from the get-go and I thought you were funny,” explained Jonsson, as Christian could be clearly seen mouthing the word “liar”.

Troyer made an “anatomically correct” model of Adams and said: “I’m giving this to Ben so he can stop looking in the mirror.”
