Christopher Maloney was the fifth housemate to be evicted from Celebrity BIg Brother tonight, and Gillian McKeith entered as a special visitor.
Over the weekend, Big Brother gave housemates the opportunity to win immunity from tonight’s eviction in a series of tasks in the Forgotten Theatre. Gemma, Stephanie and Darren were all successful, meaning that Scotty T, Danniella, Jeremy, Christopher, John and Tiffany had to face eviction. The public have since being voting to save. During tonight’s 9pm Channel 5 programme, Emma Willis announced live to the house that the fifth person to leave would be Christopher.
Following the announcement, Christopher had 30 seconds to say his goodbyes and left the house to cheers from the crowd; then was greeted by Emma.
Asked how he felt about leaving the house, Christopher told Emma, “I’m so glad to be out of there to be honest with you.”
Emma asked him how he thinks Danniella feels about his departure. He told her, “she’s going through an emotional rollercoaster at the moment. She’s getting a little bit upset and I’ve been there for her and stuff. She’s a great girl, good luck to her. She’s doing really well in there.”
Emma then goes on to ask how it was on the first night when Christopher and Danniella saw each other for the first time following a period of not speaking. He said, “I was sh*tting myself. What did she say to me? We’ll have words, we’ll speak later. But we sorted it; you know it’s been great. I’m glad we sorted it because it wasn’t even anything to do with us, it was other people that were trying to stir sh*t.”
Quizzed about his relationship with Gemma in the house, Christopher told Emma “I’ve got to say, I didn’t really get her at the beginning and I’d rather please her than upset her. But since we had that conversation the other day, I got her. I got who she was and what kind of a person she is. I found her intimidating a little bit, I found her a bit overpowering. She’s a great housemate and she’s doing really well.”
Emma asked Christopher who he wants to win and he told her Danniella and Darren.
Tonight, viewers also saw holistic food & lifestyle guru, Gillian McKeith, pay an unexpected visit to the Big Brother house. In the Diary Room, Big Brother informed her that there are high levels of toxicity in the house; she said “absolutely, could not agree with you more. I’m definitely the best person for the job. Bring it on, somebodies got to sort out the mayhem in this place. Shenanigans no more.”
Gillian then entered the house and had to pick who she believed to be the four most toxic housemates to take part in her detox clinic. She chose Stephanie, Scotty T, John and Tiffany.
Celebrity Big Brother returns tomorrow at 9pm on Channel 5. Emma will be back on Friday at 9pm for the next eviction.
