Nicola McLean and Romeo were evicted from 'Celebrity Big Brother' yesterday evening.

The two stars lost out in the public vote to save your favourite housemate and missed out on being in the final on Friday .

Nicola was the first to leave and exited the house to a cacophony of boos and jeers from the crowd.

The former glamour babe initially seemed surprised by her eviction, telling host Brian Dowling: "As far as I know I never did anything to deserve it. So I guess it's because I'm blonde with big boobs."

Brian then asked the 30-year-old mother-of-two if her row with Denise Welch over 'pantsgate' - during which the 'Loose Women' host pulled down Playboy model Karissa Shannon's pyjamas exposing her butt - could have been the cause of her eviction, Nicola was adamant she didn't do anything she regrets.

The model - who struck up a close friendship with Karissa and her twin sister Kristina - said: "I didn't think I was wrong for getting involved. I felt she was wrong for saying it was OK because of what the twins do for a living.

'I'm a former Page 3 girl, but I wouldn't like someone pulling my top down on national television."

Nicola also claimed Denise's problems in the house all stemmed from her drinking too much.

She said: "As soon as we have a glass of ... well we all change, but I think Denise changes in a bad way. Denise betrayed my trust and she spoke behind my back."

In contrast, Romeo left the house to huge cheers, but claimed he had an instinct he would be leaving the Channel 5 reality show when he woke up.

He said: "I woke up with a gut feeling, I knew it was my time to go. People just forget to pick up the phone, it's hard times and we've just had Christmas. But it's all good."

Karissa and Kristina, Denise, Michael Madsen, Gareth Thomas and Frankie Cocozza will now battle it out to be crowned the series winner.
