Jennie set for Big Brother final

Big Brother contestant Jennie Corner has won immunity from eviction on next week's show, guaranteeing her a place in the final on 18 August.

The 18-year-old sales advisor from Crewe gained her prize by coming first in a life-size Big Brother board game.

Meanwhile four of this year's evicted housemates will return to the reality programme on Tuesday.

A public vote will decide who to send back in, and one of these contestants will make it through to the final.

On Friday, Mikey Dalton and Susie Verrico became the latest contestants to be evicted from the Channel 4 series.

Mikey, a 22-year-old software designer and model from Liverpool, was the first to leave, having been the bookmakers' favourite because of a rush of bets.

Susie, 43, had entered the house through a "golden ticket" lottery-style competition, but was also voted out in a surprise double eviction.

Housemates return

Channel 4 brought former contestants Grace, Jayne, Lea, Lisa, Michael, Nikki, Sam and Spiral back to the Big Brother compound for Friday night's show.

All face the public vote, along with Mikey and Susie, both of whom opted to be part of the latest twist in the reality series.

Shahbaz, Dawn and George were ineligible because they chose to quit the show and were not actually evicted.

"Legal reasons" kept Bonnie and Sezer away, Channel 4 said, although it did not provide any further explanation.

Last month, however, Sezer Yurtseven was bailed by police after being questioned about an alleged rape, said to have happened at a hotel in London.

Nikki 'favourite'

The four people with the most votes by Tuesday evening will be sent into the "secret" house.

Two days later, the housemates will have to decide which one of them returns to the main house for a reunion with the other contestants.

That person will remain there until the show ends on 18 August and will be in line once again to win the 100,000 prize.

Current favourite to return is Nikki Grahame, who declared that her ambition was to be a footballer's wife.

Since her eviction on 14 July, she has signed up with digital channel E4 to present her own show, Princess Nikki.

"The betting's certainly suggesting that Nikki will be back in," said Rupert Adams of bookmaker William Hill.
