Big Brother 2016 eviction! Sam Giffen and Alex Cannon kicked out in "brutal" twist

Big Brother 2016

Sam Giffen and Alex Cannon have been kicked out of the Big Brother 2016 house in a surprise eviction.

The pair were given the boot after polling the fewest votes to win up until Sunday afternoon.

While the unlucky pair who got the axe in the house yesterday in a double eviction, it was only shown on the show this evening.

After Laura's exit during the penultimate live show on Friday, lines opened to vote for the Big Brother winner however voting froze at 3PM yesterday.

Unaware of the impending eviction, in the house the eight remaining housemates took part in a "twisted carnival" challenge which involved fun tasks including a coconut shy and strong man game.

However there was a sinister twist in the tail after a fortune teller experience involving a "Zoltar" machine revealed the fate of the two evicted housemates.

Housemates were called two at a time to have their fortunes read by Zoltar, who revealed the results of viewer polls including the phone vote.

Alex and Sam were told they were the "least popular" with the public but that was followed with a bombshell.

As Big Brother bombed in to announce that Alex and Sam had been evicted and had to leave immediately.

In the Diary Room, Alex said he was "devastated" while Sam admitted he was "gutted".

One of Andy, Hughie, Jackson, Jason, Evelyn or Jayne will now win £70,000 in Tuesday's final.
