Housemates to pick who gets free ticket to final

The 'Big Brother' housemates will tonight be told one of them will be given a free ticket to the final – and they will have to choose that lucky person themselves.

The 'Big Brother' housemates will tonight be told one of them will be given a free ticket to the final – and they will have to choose that lucky person themselves.

Following tonight’s eviction, nominations will be axed and all the housemates will be put up for the public vote to face the boot, before the final of 'Big Brother 11' on August 24.

However, one of the housemates will be able to escape eviction and 'Big Brother' will give the housemates one minute to choose among themselves who it will be.

Ten of this year’s 21 housemates remain, including paraplegic, one-eyed Army veteran Steve, Welsh minister Dave, self-proclaimed 'Big Brother' superfan Mario and Australian John James who is romancing Bristol blonde Josie.

Favourites to win this year are new arrival Sam Pepper and Katie Price lookalike Corin.

After the final the winner will re-enter the 'Big Brother' house for a further two weeks, joined by past 'Big Brother' and 'Celebrity Big Brother' housemates, to take part in 'Ultimate Big Brother'.

Channel 4 today unveiled a promotional campaign featuring former housemates who may be taking part.

These include racing commentator John McCririck, singer Dane Bowers, histrionic housemate Nikki Grahame and former cheat “Nasty” Nick Bateman.

Craig Phillips, 38, who won the first series of the reality show in 2000 has confirmed he will be taking part.
