Just seven percent separated Luke A from evicted Big Brother housemate Lauren on last night's show, it has been revealed.
Lauren was a shock exit on the show tonight, with various polls and the bookies odds predicting that the blonde beauty would be saved.
Bit On The Side host Emma Willis revealed how close the vote was this evening, with Lauren still praising her pal for staying.
She said: "Good on Luke, he's a lovely guy."
Lauren added: "I love Adam and Luke, they're such genuine people. I felt so comfortable having made friends with them."
And she said of the insiders: "They're horrible people. Caroline and Conor should've been up for eviction."
