BB to give four housemates the boot as final looms

Four 'Big Brother' housemates will be evicted on Friday as the 11th series enters its closing stages.

Four 'Big Brother' housemates will be evicted on Friday as the 11th series enters its closing stages.

With just nine days to go until the final, the fate of the nine remaining housemates has been left in the hands of viewers.

The vote to evict phone lines opened after Jo became the eighth housemate to be booted off the show on Friday night.

Josie was earlier chosen by housemates to receive a free ticket to the final, which will be held sooner than originally planned, on August 24.

Three Big Brother housemates gorged themselves sick yesterday as they went head-to-head in a race to be the first to eat an entire table of hot Mexican food.

The remaining nine were split into three teams, with one person from each group competing in the Taco Hell task while being cheered on.

JJ, Dave and Mario stepped up to the plate, but ended up vomiting in the toilet after tucking into chicken fajitas, hot chilli con carne with rice and tacos.

As Mario ventured to the bathroom, housemates chanted: “The mole, the mole, the mole is on fire.”

JJ was the first to complete the task, securing a cactus for his fellow team-mates John James and Sam.

Dave and Mario, who hates spicy food, eventually managed to eat all their food, securing a Mexican themed party for everyone.

Bookmakers Coral said it had seen a surge of bets for Bristol blonde Josie to win after she was given an automatic pass to the final.

It said she had jumped to 11-8 favourite (from 4-1), with Sam Pepper at 15-8 and Corin at 3-1.

Coral spokesman Gary Burton said: “Early favourite Josie’s popularity had waned a little over the last few weeks but with her final place now guaranteed, she has firmly cemented her place at the head of the market once again.”

After the final, the winner will re-enter the house for a further two weeks, to compete against well known names from past series of Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother, in Ultimate Big Brother.
