It was another shock Big Brother 2011 exit this evening as Harry Blake became the latest housemate to be evicted from the house. Bookies had predicted that the 22-year-old entrepreneur would be safe from the chop, but he was beaten by Aaron, Jay and Faye in this evening's vote.
In announcing the result, host Brian Dowling first revealed that Aaron and Jay had the most votes respectively.
It's sure to be a tough exit for Harry, who wasn't originally facing eviction. Last Monday Big Brother announced to the eight remaining housemates that they would sit their seventh round of nominations. However in a shock twist it was revealed that the housemate’s friends & family would nominate on their behalf.
Housemates Aaron and Jem received the most number of nominations and automatically faced eviction, and the public vote to save.
However, in a shock turn Jem told Big Brother that she would be leaving the Big Brother house. Big Brother then revealed to the housemates that as a result of Jem’s decision to leave the house, the eviction between her and Aaron on Friday had been cancelled. Big Brother clarified that all the other housemates who received a nomination this week would now join Aaron in being up for eviction.
Therefore, Faye, Jay and Harry were told that they would now face eviction alongside Aaron.
Harry exited the house tonight to huge cheers from the crowd and told host Brian: “It was pretty special… I could not believe the reaction from the crowd. It could not have been better.”
Harry went on to say that he wanted Alex to win Big Brother.
