Tonight's Celebrity Big Brother 2016 results - who was evicted?!

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Ricky Norwood has been saved from eviction in tonight's live Celebrity Big Brother 2016 results show.

Stephen Bear, Samantha Fox, Lewis Bloor, James Whale and Ricky were all up for the first double eviction of the series this evening.

In Wednesday's show we saw the group gathered by Big Brother for an announcement just after the previous eviction on Tuesday night, where Heavy D got the axe.

Big Brother told the housemates that they would be nominating each other face to face.

After everyone had given their nominations, with seven votes, James, five votes, Lewis, three votes Ricky and two votes, Sam were all put up for eviction alongside eternally nominated Bear.

It was the very first time facing the chop for Sam and Ricky were up for the axe as they went against a trio who had each survived at least two evictions.

But Ricky proved his spot as favourite to win in the odds by topping the public vote to save as revealed by host Emma Willis in tonight's live show.

He was quickly congratulated by most of the group, although in Bear in particular was stunned by the announcement.

Emma then told the group: "I have news, I can confirm that two of you will be evicted this evening. We'll get back to you shortly, good luck."

The two housemates with the fewest votes will be revealed and chat to Emma in tonight's second live show from 10:30PM on Channel 5.
