The Celebrity Big Brother final takes place later this week, but not before there is one more eviction twist. 

Following the double eviction last night (19th March), there are six housemates left. They are former X Factor judge Louis Walsh, Heartstopper actor Bradley Riches, Corrie’s Colson Smith, David Potts from Ibiza Weekender, presenter Fern Britton and Strictly’s Nikita Kuzmin. The latter two survived yesterday’s eviction, with Marisha Wallace and Zeze Millz being voted out.

However, if the surviving housemates thought that they’d definitely made it to the final, which takes place on Friday (22nd March), then they were wrong.

Host Will Best announced at the end of the latest double-eviction episode that one more of the celebs will be gone in a backdoor eviction before the final. 

Viewers are now about to vote for who they want to win, and the vote will pause from 6pm tonight (20th March). The housemate with the lowest percentage of the public vote will then leave via the backdoor, two days before the big final episode.

Whilst we don't know who that will be, we do know that one of the housemates will definitely be in the final. Louis picked up immunity earlier in the week, so will not be part of the eviction vote.

Marisha and Zeze’s exit followed the departures of Levi Roots and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, with the latter having something of a tense clash with hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best after she left the house. After the incident, virginradio.co.uk spoke exclusively to Big Brother legend Davina McCall about the show’s “duty of care to look after the people when they come out.”

Davina told us: “There’s got to be a bit of give and take on both sides. She needs to be asked those difficult questions, because that’s what the public wants answers to. But she also needs to get looked after as well.”

Celebrity Big Brother airs Sundays through Fridays at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX, followed by Late & Live on ITV2 immediately following each episode.
