Narinder gets Big Brother boot

Narinder Kaur has become the third person to be evicted from the Big Brother house after viewers voted to give the other housemates a break from her confrontational style.

More than two thirds of the 1.2 million people who voted wanted Narinder out - meaning Paul, who was also nominated, gets another reprieve.

Paul's odds for eviction were 5-1
And the fiery medical rep was seen telling host Davina McCall exactly what she thought of the other housemates.

Amma was "sly" and "lazy", she said, while Dean was "boring" and Josh "suspicious".

When shown video clips of the housemates nominating her, she criticised Dean and Elizabeth for not making the effort to get along with her.

And she booed Helen and said: "She's full of herself."

Narinder's stay was characterised by a series of arguments - especially with the women.

"The worst bit was being with people you can't stand," she said after leaving the house for the first time in more than four weeks.

"It was so intense."


"But the best thing was learning about each others' lives."

She said she hopes Brian, Elizabeth or Paul wins the 70,000 prize.

When she found out that she would be leaving, she was seen cheering before hugging Paul.

Narinder had been strong favourite to leave, with bookmakers Paddy Power putting her odds at 1-10, with Paul at 5-1.

Computer designer Paul, 25, will stay in the house for at least another week despite being nominated by fellow contestants for a second time.

The result of the public vote was announced on Friday's live show.

Brian, who has formed a close friendship with Narinder, earlier threatened to walk out of the house if Narinder was evicted.

"If she goes, I want to go," he said. "I don't want to be here anymore. She's the only one that makes me laugh."

Josh tried to talk him out of it, saying everybody knew they were entering the house as contestants in a competition.

"You knew the rules. You knew someone would be going out each time," he told Brian.

Narinder was nominated by six people when the housemates chose who they wanted out of the house on Monday.

Paul picked up four votes.

Next eviction

Many of the housemates had noticed that Narinder was causing friction and, as Elizabeth put it, "she is often the cause of shouting in the house".

Paddy Power are also already offering odds on who will be the fourth housemate to go.

Paul is the favourite at 7-4. Amma follows at 2-1, with Helen at 5-1 and Josh at 7-1.

Dean seems most likely to stay - a long shot for eviction at 33-1.

Last Friday, 86% of the public voted out company director Stuart Hosking.

Schoolteacher Penny Ellis became the first person to be thrown out of the house after just two weeks.
