Katie Waissel and Samantha Fox have become the seventh and eighth housemates to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother 2016 house, just missing out on a place in the final.
Christmas graced the house this week, as the house were divided into Reindeers and elves. Katie was the leader of Team Reindeer and pulled Santa’s sleigh with Samantha, Ricky and Bear. Frankie led Team Elf and worked in Santa’s workshop with Aubrey, Marnie and Renee. Each team raced to their station whenever their theme tune was played, then performed a dance until they heard a ‘Ho Ho Ho’ from Santa.
As the festivities come to a close, Big Brother announced that each team has a present to open, nice for the winner, and booby prize for the losing team. Team Elf and Team Reindeer are stunned when the nomination related prizes are revealed via big boxes in the Garden.
Team Elf was the winner of the competition as was rewarded with two nominations each and Team Reindeer lost the competition and therefore received only one nomination.
After nominations were given, housemates were gathered on the sofas where they were each given a board to wear.
One by one, they peeled off stickers revealing whether they were safe or nominated and then a second sticker to see who had nominated them.
After this process, Ricky, Frankie, Katie, Marnie, Samantha, and of course Bear due to his curse of eternal nomination.
This meant that Aubrey and Renee had secured themselves a place in the final, with both of them receiving no nominations.
However, after all of the votes had been verified, it was Katie and Samantha who received the fewest votes and therefore were evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house, just missing out on a place in the final.
This means, Stephen Bear, Marnie Simpson, Renee Graziano, Aubrey O’Day, Ricky Norwood and Frankie Grande are this year’s Celebrity Big Brother finalists.
The Celebrity Big Brother 2016 final will be on Friday night on Channel 5 at 9pm.
