Celebrity Big Brother 2018: Year of the Woman - India Willoughby and Jonny Mitchell nominated for first eviction

India Willoughby and Jonny Mitchell are facing the first eviction of Celebrity Big Brother 2018 after the women took part in a round of face-to-face nominations during tonight’s live show.

Since last Tuesday’s launch, the women have held ‘the power’ in the house, becoming the only housemates eligible to nominate this week.

They also had four chances to win immunity, with Amanda Barrie, Jess Impiazzi, Maggie Oliver and Malika Haqq all earning safety from the first eviction.

Conversely, the men only had one immunity pass to fight over after their arrival on Friday, with Shane Jenek, a.k.a. Courtney Act emerging as the winner.

The drama concluded during a 90-minute live special on Channel 5 tonight, when presenter Emma Willis entered the house briefly to preside over a round of face-to-face nominations.

The women each had to select the pictures of the two housemates they wished to nominate, before explaining their reasons. The results were as follows:

  • Malika nominated Andrew because “I don’t think he’s really doing his job” and Ann because “I think we’re all torturing her”
  • Rachel nominated India because “We are all tiptoeing around your sensitivities” and Jonny because “he’s just too much of a temptation”
  • Ashley nominated India because “I felt awkward that Ann had to sit and wait for her own bed when she was very entitled to it” and Jonny because “I feel like we have the least in common”
  • India nominated Ann because “I feel [she’s] not really entered in to the spirit of Big Brother, and she took the bed that I claimed first” and Ginuwine because of his alleged comments in regards to dating trans women
  • Amanda nominated Jonny because “I’ve always thought you were just on the outside edge of the group” and India because “I want so much to get to know about everybody else”
  • Maggie nominated India because of “the incident with the bed” and Jonny because “I feel that I don’t know you as well as everybody else”
  • Jess nominated India because “I thought that bed should have been Ann’s” and Ann because she felt she “pulled the mood down a little bit” during the mens’ labour task
  • Ann nominated India “because of all the rows she’s caused” and Andrew because he’s the “rowdiest and most laddish” housemate

Shortly afterwards, Big Brother announced that India and Jonny would face the public vote, having received six and four nominations respectively.

This verdict has raised some eyebrows among fans, as going by the show’s usual system – all housemates with at least two nominations facing the vote – Ann Widdecombe and Andrew Brady would also be up for the chop, on three and two nominations respectively.

Channel 5 has not confirmed what criteria was used to decide which housemates would face this eviction.

Only three evictions in the last three years have been a direct head-to-head between two nominees, the latest involving Charlotte Keys and Isabelle Warburton during the ‘civilian’ series in the summer.

The public vote to save is now open, and either India or Jonny will leave the house during Friday’s live shows, at 9.00pm and 10.35pm on Channel 5 and 3e.

    Should have been Dapper and India. Not sure how he is supposed to be a comedian. Not made me laugh yet.
    I’m getting more laughs looking at Jordans face which seems to have a mind of it’s own.

    loving this show but for the sake of it – india has to go – if you disagree make your case in poetry or like the song says below please.

    CBB fans i need you ! 10.01.18


    the fans i am calling

    read this and don’t buffer

    we are neutral and stalling

    the mechanic’s are to suffer.

    i no some viewers are twisted

    its not a insult its a fact

    watching pain can not be resisted

    oblivious to “the equality 2010 act ” .

    cruel to be kind

    from india we need to return to sender

    its not because we are compassion blind

    just that ignorance will always be on gender.

    johny has potential

    a song with a different tune

    let it evolve so less confidential

    CBB fans from eviction please make johnny immune.


    ( if you agree or disagree i would be grateful if you reply is done in poetry or maybe you need to heed this tune – )

    India reminds me of a tyre
    She sure knows how to light a fire
    To keep her in
    Just for the win
    Would be so dishonest
