Victor evicted from Brother house

The news of Victor's eviction was greeted by boos and cheers
Victor Ebuwa has become the latest to be voted out of the Big Brother house, after eight weeks on the reality show.

His eviction, greeted by a mix of boos and cheers from the public, means fellow nominees Nadia Almada, Dan Bryan and Jason Cowen will stay in the house.

Jason, 30, had been favourite for eviction while 27-year-old Nadia is now odds-on to win the show outright.

The fifth series of the reality TV show is enjoying record ratings, with up to six million tuning in nightly.

These figures have risen sharply in the past week following speculation that two of the housemates had sex for the first time in the history of the British series.

Bookmakers paid out on bets on a couple having sex inside the house, saying all the evidence pointed to Stuart Wilson and Michelle Bass having got intimate on Tuesday.

Neither of the pair face eviction so their popularity in the wake of their encounter will not be put to the test.

Ladbrokes' spokesman Warren Lush said: "Nadia is now the odds-on favourite to win but her lead over other housemates is by no means big."

Next week could be difficult one for the remaining housemates as their failure in the wedding-themed weekly task means they will have to live on basic rations and will have no extra money for luxuries.
