Big Brother 2013 winner Sam Evans was almost evicted on Friday

SAM EVANS

Big Brother 2013 winner Sam Evans came within just 2% of being evicted last week.

Friday evening saw Sophie Lawrence become the final housemate to leave in the Big Brother 2013 results, booted out ahead of Sam, Charlie Travers and twins Jack and Joe.

Dental Nurse, Sophie, left the house to mixture of boos and cheers from the live audience at the time, She later told BB host Emma Willis, “I didn't think I would make it this far.” Sophie said that she felt “shell shocked” to be out.

And it was a close one, with Emma revealing that there was less than 2% between her and the next highest placed nominee in the votes.

During the show, Emma did not reveal who that person was, although we knew it wasn't twins Jack and Joe, who were announced as safe earlier in the show having received the fewest votes to leave.

But BB narrator Marcus Bentley revealed after last night's final that Sam, who won Big Brother 2013, was the housemate who was just behind Sophie in the vote.

He tweeted: “On Friday there was 2% between Sophie and another housemate. That housemate was Sam.”

At the time of writing, no details have been officially released about how close the votes in yesterday's final were.

Big Brother returns to Channel 5 next summer.
