Celebrity Big Brother 2017: Marissa Jade desperate to return to the house

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2017

Marissa Jade is desperate to return to the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 house.

It was Marissa who was evicted from Celebrity Big Brother on Tuesday night in the first eviction. She had faced the axe alongside Karthik Nagesan, Trisha Paytas, Sarah Harding and Chad following the first round of nominations.

Marissa and Karthik were in the bottom two while Trisha, Sarah and Chad all topped the vote in no particular order.

The day after her exit, Marissa was already angling for a return to the house.

She posted to Instagram: "How did you feel about my eviction last night? It wasn't my time! I say I come back for a task @cbb_uk #WeWantMarissa"


Speaking to Emma Willis after her eviction, Marissa suggested she was a "cheap shot" after being put up for eviction on Day 1 in a launch night twist.

Shaun Williamson gave Marissa a killer nomination which left her automatically up for the first public vote.

Marissa said: "I don’t think I have enough support out here. I really didn’t know what the public wanted from me, I felt like I was the underdog, the other members were more well-known than me."

She added: "I got cheap-shotted, the person who put me up I know he regretted it. I had no chance to defend myself."

Meanwhile, speaking to The Sun newspaper, Marissa has had her say on the show's 'race row' between Paul Danan and Karthik Nagesan.

It kicked off between the pair when Paul pronounced Karthik's name wrong, prompting The Apprentice star to accuse Paul of being 'racist'.

“I didn’t see the initial reaction of Karthik as Jordan and I were engaged in conversation, but I don’t believe that Paul said anything racist," Marissa said. "It was a joke, and Sam was the first one to say his name in that manner."

She added: I don’t like it when people resort to racism because you make something out of nothing and you make someone look bad and Karthik should have not said that.”

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 airs nightly on Channel 5.
