Jonny and Lee up for eviction
Jonny Regan and Lee Davey
Mr Davey voted for Mr Regan as he had "nothing to say"
Jonny Regan and Lee Davey are the latest housemates to be nominated for eviction from Channel 4's reality gameshow Big Brother.

The housemate chosen for eviction by the public will be told they will have to leave the house on Friday, and will lose the chance of winning the 70,000 prize.

All are competing for the cash and the fame that will accompany victory in the reality show.

Last year's winner Brian Dowling is a presenter on ITV1's children's show SM:tv, while first victor Craig Phillips works on a home improvement show.

This week's unlucky occupant in the camera-filled house will be given just over an hour to pack his possessions and say his goodbyes.

Both personal trainer Lee, 22, and fireman Jonny, 29, found themselves on the "rich" side of the house after it was split by bars at the weekend following a basketball contest.

The nominees sat in stunned silence as they learned that they would be possible evictees in the third departure from the house.

All of the housemates on the "poor" side voted for housemates on the rich side.

'Interaction' ploy

Male model Alex Sibley said he chose Lee because he felt he had been "gloating" since ending up in the rich side of the house.

Southport PA Adele Roberts concurred, suggesting "towards the end of this week he's been really childish".

The splitting of the house is intended to provoke more "interaction" from the contestants.

The housemates on the rich side now have comfortable sofas, the better bedroom, the pool, a 400 housekeeping allowance and hot water in the morning and evenings.

The others have basic furniture, an outside wood stove on which to cook and an outside toilet and shower.

Tensions have risen between the contestants since the split, with Sandy Cumming admitting he is bored of life in the house and would like to be voted out and other housemates becoming emotional.

But the contestants, who are generally cut off from the outside world, will at least have the chance of keeping up to date with the World Cup if they complete the latest task.

'Keepy-up' challenge

The 10 will be allowed to see the crucial England v Nigeria game on Wednesday morning - although without the sound.

Even the task is football-related, with the women in the house required to do "keepy-ups", knocking a ball into the air repeatedly without dropping it.

However many kicks they manage to keep it in the air for will determine the number of minutes of the game they can see.

Official bookmaker Ladbrokes makes Lee the 1-4 favourite to be evicted on Friday with Jonny at 11-4.

Spencer Smith remains their favourite to win the competition at 11/10, although Alex's odds have narrowed from 50/1 to 7/1, according to bookmakers William Hill.
