Big Brother contestant Justine Sellman is the latest to be evicted from the reality TV show.

As predicted by the bookmakers, she lost out to fellow nominee Jon Tickle by gaining 57% of the public vote.

Justine, 27, was distraught to learn she was the second housemate to be evicted.

The sales manager from Leeds clasped her hands over her face and was comforted by the other girls.

As she packed her suitcase, still looking shocked by the vote, she said: "I don't want to go."

WHAT ARE THE HOUSEMATES READING?
Anouska - A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer
Cameron - The Bible
Federico - The Justice Game by Geoffrey Robinson
Gos - Mandrake by Paul Eddy
Jon - The Complete Works by William Shakespeare
Justine - Cocktails for Three by Madeleine Wickham
Nush - Srimad Bhagavad Gita
Ray - Empire State by Colin Bateman
Scott - The Devil and Miss Prym by Paulo Coelho
Sissy - Encyclopaedia of Aromatherapy, Massage and Yoga by Carole MacGilvery, Jimi Reed and Mira Mehta
Steph - The Bible Code by Michael Drosnan
Tania - Not Without My Daughter by Betty Mahmoody with William Hoffer

Sissy suggested the girls were being "picked off" one by one by the public, following the eviction of Anoushka Golebiewski last week.

As the tension reached a climax and the show's presenter, Davina McCall, prepared to announce the name of the person to be evicted, Jon said: "I'll give you a clue, it begins with J."

The 27-year-old data strategy manager from Staines, has been dubbed the "loveable bore".

But he has gained support from tabloid newspapers and the show's fans, who have warmed to his moaning and scientific rambles.

He has also become known for his wacky inventions including attempts to solar heat the swimming pool using a black bin bag and a hose and his idea for a toaster with a time-delay.

It was his second week being nominated, but his growing popularity outside the house made Justine the overwhelming favourite to be evicted.

Ladbrokes said they received a late rush of bets on Justine to leave.

Spokesman Warren Lush said: "We were expecting Justine to get the Big Brother boot and so were the punters, she'd been heavily backed to walk the walk."

Ladbrokes have placed 27-year-old Liverpudlian Scott Turner as the favourite to win with odds of 3/1, followed by Nush Nowak, 23, at 4/1.

Channel Four has revealed what each of the housemates chose to take into the house to read - with each being allowed just one book.

Their selections vary wildly, with Cameron Stout taking in a copy of the Bible while Cissy Rooney opted for the Encyclopaedia of Aromatherapy, Massage and Yoga.
