Austin Armacost feels "robbed" after his shock eviction from Celebrity Big Brother on Friday night.

Following Friday’s first eviction of the series - where Angie Best got the axe - Celebrity Big Brother's 'Weekend from Hell' kicked off in shocking style.


Housemates were gathered in ‘Hell’ soon joined by host Emma Willis.

In a surprise twist Emma told the existing Housemates that they now had to ‘Cull the Dull.’ The remaining Housemates were given 10 seconds to write down the name of the one Housemate that they believed was the dullest.

The Housemate that they chose as the dullest was Austin. In a shock eviction, Austin immediately lost his place in the Celebrity Big Brother house and was therefore, the second Housemate to be evicted.

Taking to Twitter this weekend after his eviction, Austin hit out at the show: "Feel completely robbed of my spot in the #CBB house.

"Wasn't voted out by fans or housemates #Deflated #WasJustGettingGoing."

Host Emma defended the cruel twist on Bit On The Side after Friday's show, saying: "The thing is, you can't promise the Weekend from Hell and then be nice... "I don't make the show!"

Speaking to Emma on Friday's show, Austin reflected on his exit: “Such is life, I said there would be another one (eviction), everyone knows that’s bulls**t, I’m not the dullest one in the house.”

Emma asked if by being a runner up the first time in the house, it was more difficult trying to be a “perfect housemate.” Austin said: “I went in doing the perfect thing, and that would be being Austin.”

Finally, Emma asked him who he would like to win, and who he thought would like to win: "Calum has a really good shot, I think Heidi and Spencer (will win) unfortunately.”


The ‘Weekend from Hell’ has only just begun and there will be another shock eviction on Sunday. Emma will be back for the live show on Tuesday at 9pm.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
