Emma Willis enters Celeb BB house to evict Lee Ryan
Blue singer Lee Ryan has become the sixth housemate to leave Celebrity Big Brother 2014, in a surprise eviction that saw presenter Emma Willis enter the house for the conclusion of the ignore the obvious task.
Since yesterday, the group has had to freeze in silence whenever the grandfather clock in the lounge chimed to signal the arrival of a visitor.
During tonight’s hastily-scheduled live show – which overran by nine minutes – the clock’s bell tolled for the final time, and Emma entered the house as the final special guest.
After passing quick comments on how each housemate looked, she got down to business, announcing: “On Friday we told you you had all made the Celebrity Big Brother final. That was a lie. For the last 48 hours the British public have been voting for their winner.
“Tonight the housemate with the fewest votes so far will be evicted from the house and will leave with me immediately. The remaining housemates must stay frozen or risk severe consequences.
“I can now reveal the housemate with the fewest votes and sixth to be evicted is… Lee.”
“I knew it, I knew it,” responded Lee. “Thank you so much. See you later guys.”
Despite the task rules – which have already been broken several times, including by Lee when he had an argument with returning evictee Jasmine – the others spoke up to bid him farewell.
Sam also moved to catch an object Lee threw at her as he exited the house.
A few more seconds passed before the clock chimed again, allowing the housemates to return to normal and react to what had just happened.
“That’s why they got me out of bed and shut the garden,” observed Sam.
They were also quick to pass comment on Emma’s appearance, with Dappy cooing: “She looked sexy in that, man.”
“What a gorgeous looking woman,” added Jim. “I’ve never seen anything like her, I thought I was dreaming.”
The result means that Casey, Dappy, Jim, Luisa, Ollie and Sam have now made it to the final of Celebrity Big Brother 2014. Public voting of the winner has now resumed, with the series concluding on Wednesday night at 9.00pm on Channel 5.
