Lynne first Big Brother evictee

Mature student Lynne has been voted out of the Big brother house following trainee barrister Sunita's exit on Thursday.

Viewers had been voting for one of the 11 remaining contestants to be thrown out of the camera-filled house since they moved in on 24 May.

I had a strategy not to be too loud and not too full on, but it didn't work

But the housemates did not know viewers have been voting to evict one of their number - they were originally told the first eviction would come after two weeks in the house, and not one.

Lynne and Jade topped the viewers' poll, and they were sent to the girl's bedroom while their fellow housemates voted on who would go.

The nine housemates decided overwhelmingly to kick Lynne out.

PJ said: "Lynne and I haven't been interested in each other from day one."

Adele and Alex both agreed that they had got on better with Jade during their week in the house.

Tears

Lynne put on a brave face when host Davina McCall broke the news - while Jade burst into floods of tears.

Lynne was given an hour to pack her belongings and say goodbye to the other housemates.

Early exit: Sunita left on Thursday
After stepping through the front door, she said to the presenter: "I feel very strange. I didn't expect to be the first one voted out."

"I thought I was doing quite well. I had a strategy not to be too loud and not too full on, but it didn't work so never mind.

"I just hope I'm not going to be the most hated person in Britain."

She said she thought Sandy was the most likely person to be evicted as he had not been "integrating as well".

When asked to choose a winner she thought Jonny and Alison were the most likely contenders.

Completing a night of surprises in the house, Southport-based PA Adele, who had earlier admitted to being attracted to fellow housemate Lee, told him she was involved in a relationship with another woman.

Challenge

Producers at Channel 4 had promised the contestants would face a tougher regime in the surveillance game show's third series.

The first challenge for the 10 remaining contestants lives up to this promise. They will face a general knowledge test.

The housemates must choose one category from sport, politics or entertainment and will be asked 10 questions on their chosen subject.

If they get seven questions or above correct they win 400 in housekeeping money.

But if they score less than seven, they will be provided with only basic rations including pasta, rice and flour to supplement a supply of eggs and vegetables from the garden.

They will also have no hot water for the week.

Sunita's departure, trailed in advance, was seen by 4.8 million TV viewers - making it the most popular programme in that slot on Thursday evening.

A new contestant will replace her, but details are yet to be revealed by the show's producers.

She said she was feeling claustrophobic and the show had effectively deprived contestants of their rights.
