Celeb BB eviction results: Liz Jones fourth out
Polarising Daily Mail journalist Liz Jones has been voted out of the Celebrity Big Brother 2014 house in the fourth eviction of the series.
Despite having previously saved three times by the public, the 55-year-old lost to rival nominees Jim Davidson and Sam Faiers, walking out to a mixed reception from the crowd.
Speaking about her time on the show to presenter Emma Willis, Liz said: “I am so relieved. I have post traumatic shock. I’m traumatised. They all eat so much. It was so dirty, and I felt very much an outsider – but I think they started to warm to me a little bit over the last couple of days. Slightly.
“It’s kind of like being in therapy for three weeks. I’ve got a bit more tactile – I let Lee hold my hand, I didn’t mind them touching me so much. I miss my dogs.”
Emma quizzed Liz – who is deaf – on whether her fellow housemates were wary of her reputation for scathing articles, with her famous victims including Rihanna and Holly Willoughby.
“They were at first, but then they realised they could have entire conversations that went completely over my head because I couldn’t hear what they’re saying,” she explained. It’s a combination of the hearing aid and lip reading, but when it’s lots of people I get a bit confused.
“I was gonna try and be more outgoing than I normally am, because I’m normally very shy and introverted, but with them you can’t get a word in. There’s a lot more depth to them that you’d think from seeing them on television. They’re all really nice people.”
Liz insisted that she was very straight-talking in the house – highlighting one example of her branding Luisa a ‘toddler’ – and claimed she was being ‘kind’ when critiquing the housemates’ fashion senses during the talent show task.
She said that she’d stay in touch with the ex-Apprentice contestant, Sam, Casey and Linda – as well as Dappy, whom she described as ‘sweet’.
When asked if she’d enjoyed her Big Brother experience, Liz responded with a curt ‘no’ – but she also admitted she was pleased that the public helped her survive three evictions, commenting: “I just assumed everyone hates me so that’s something.”
The remaining eight celebrities will nominate face-to-face later tonight, with the next eviction taking place on Friday at 9.00pm on Channel 5.
