Celebrity Big Brother 2012: The Situation punished for nominations cheating!

Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino (Celebrity Big Brother 2012)

The Situation has been punished for cheating during last night's Celebrity Big Brother nominations.

Following Rhian's eviction, Big Brother gathered the housemates to nominate once again face to face.

Each housemate had cards with pictures of the other housemates on. They were instructed to select the two cards representing the two housemates they wanted to nominate.

However The Situation selected three, only deciding which two to show once nominations had begun.

As a result, his nominations - for Danica and Coleen - have been made void. However this does not change the fact that Danica, Coleen and Samantha had the most votes.

As a further punishment, The Situation has been banned from nominating for the rest of the series.

The other housemates thought the punishment was great.

"It's wonderful, it's such a relief not to have to nominate," said Coleen.

But The Situation wasn't impressed, saying: "I guess I should keep my bags packed. It's very hard for me to do these things, I couldn't decide."
