Both the contestants and the public got to decide who was first to leave the series.

One unlucky person was evicted from the Big Brother house last night (13th October), but who was it?

During Big Brother: Late & Live on 12th October, hosts Will Best and AJ Odudu revealed that Farida, a make-up artist from Wolverhampton, and NHS manager Kerry were up for elimination.

Farida had received eight nominations from her fellow housemates, who believed she was "annoying" and "opinionated", and Kerry got five because of her "tantrums" and "love for gossip".

The public were then given 24 hours to decide which of them should leave the competition first, and they chose Farida.

Following her elimination, Farida told the live audience: "I had the most amazing time.

"Thanks everybody for making the effort and coming tonight.

"I love ya. God bless ya."

After sharing that her main motivation for going on Big Brother was to represent her Asian culture, she continued: "I hope that people from my faith can learn it doesn't matter if you wear a head scarf or you don't, you can achieve every goal."

Although the 50-year-old received most of the votes to leave, it seems some fans are gutted she has already left the programme.

One tweeted: "Wrong person left. Most entertaining and honest housemate in there."

Another shared: "Sad that she went, she was brilliant to watch."

Describing the bathroom, the winner of the reality show’s third series said: "This bathroom is out of this world.

"I’ve never seen a bathroom this gangster in all my life. Look at it! This isn’t a bathroom.

"This is where drunken late night emotional conversations and arguments will happen.

"People come in[to] the bathroom to have a pop at other housemates.

"I’m feeling it," she added. "Well done on the bathroom Big Brother."

Big Brother continues at 9pm on Sunday 15th October on ITV2 and ITVX.
