Paul and Stuart face eviction
The original Big Brother 2 housemates
The original Big Brother 2 housemates
Big Brother contestants Paul and Stuart are facing up the possibility they will be ejected on Friday's live show.

The pair were both picked for eviction by four other housemates to be the second person to leave.

Company director Stuart Hosking is the bookmakers favourite to follow schoolteacher Penny out of house.

After escaping any nominations during the first week, some of his housemates had picked up on the 36-year-old's sly streak.

Speaking in the diary room, Elizabeth said: "He's a really great guy but he is very competitive which causes problems in the group."

Stuart has been nominated for eviction
Pulling no punches, Narinder said: "He finds it hard to communicate with the group and his main focus is on getting a tan."

And Amma called him "smug".

Stuart has played down his nomination, telling the others "I'm going to have a great week".

Paul Clarke, 25, was nominated by Amma, Elizabeth, Bubble and Dean, mainly because they had not bonded.


But Elizabeth was more direct, saying: "He spits on the plants and I don't think he should do that living in such a small space. It's pretty grim."

Helen, who was up for the public vote last Friday, just escaped a second week after picking up three votes, the same as Narinder.

Unsurprisingly, the two warring girls plumped for each other.

Paddy Power, the show's official bookmakers, puts Stuart at 1-6 favourite to leave, while Paul's odds are 10-6.

Both Brian and Dean have yet to be nominated by anyone.

Penny Ellis, a 33-year-old English teacher, was the first to be evicted from the second series of the reality TV programme, last Friday.

Paul faces possible eviction on Friday
Viewers of the Channel 4 programme are able to vote for which of the pair should be evicted live from the house on Friday.

The 10 contestants are competing for a 70,000 top prize, which will go to the last remaining housemate.

Josh, a 32-year-old property manager, became the 11th contestant to enter the house last Saturday when he joined the show to replace Penny.

The English teacher's job is said to be under threat because of her involvement in the show.

But the 33-year-old has already secured work outside of teaching, albeit on a temporary basis.

She has been hired to co-present Big Brother's Little Brother, which is screened on E4, for at least a week.
