Bubble's Big Brother dream bursts

Warehouse operative Bubble, 24, has become the fourth person to be evicted from Big Brother house.

Despite support in the tabloid press Bubble's eviction received 53% of viewers' votes.

Bubble was visibly shocked when news of the vote came through.

Computer designer Paul Clarke, 25, escaped eviction - for the third time.

Interviewed after he left the house, Bubble admitted to being devastated by his eviction.

Housemate Brian
Brian: Currently favourite to win the series
"If I was truly honest, I didn't think I would go," he told interviewer Davina McCall.

"I wanted to stay and I wanted to win."

He had kind words for his rival Paul: "He's a good looking lad, he's a nice guy - the more time we spent together the more we got on."

And he admitted to having struck up a strong friendship with Brian: "He's the funniest man I've ever come across in my entire life."

Asked by McCall who he thought would win the series, Bubble said: "I think it's a close call, but from the inside of the house, Brian - Brian or Dean."

"I'd like Brian to win," he added.


But Bubble - who, outside the house has been regarded as one of the favourites to win the series - said he was "gutted" by the news.

Bubble was nominated by Helen, who said: "We don't get on that well."

Paul also chose Bubble. He said: "He is the loudest, which could cause a problem later on."

The eviction leaves just three women and four men in the house.


Bubble's eviction day started late - the housemates had drunk six bottle of champagne and three bottles of cider the night before.

Dean, Bubble and Helen eventually made breakfast - at lunchtime.

Official bookmakers Paddy Power are already showing Helen as the favourite for next week's eviction at 6-4 - followed by Amma at 9-4.

The bookmakers have cabin crew supervisor Brian, 23, as favourite to win the overall contest and 70,000 prize-money, with odds of 6-5.
