Nanny Laura voted off Big Brother
Laura was caught by Big Brother talking about nominations
Welsh nanny Laura Williams has become the fourth person to be evicted from Channel 4's Big Brother house.

The 23-year-old had been favourite to be voted off the show by the public, ahead of fellow nominee Chanelle Hayes.

An actress posing as an Australian evicted from that country's version of the show is to enter the house on Sunday, it was also revealed.

The arrival of "Pauline" will be part of the show's "Fake Week", to culminate in a fake eviction.

Laura was evicted on Friday with 68% of the public vote.

Bookmakers Paddy Power had offered odds of 1/20 on Laura's eviction, with 19-year-old student Chanelle on 8/1.

Earlier, Laura and fellow housemate Nicky Maxwell had been chained together as punishment for breaking the rules on discussing the nomination process.

Fake footage

The Big Brother housemates were shown footage of Pauline, played by actress Thaila Zucchi, apparently facing eviction from Australia's Big Brother.

When she was told she would be transferred to the UK version, she responded: "Oh, it's summer out there!"

The housemates will face Australian-themed tasks in the coming week, before having to guess whether Pauline is genuine.

Earlier this week media agency boss Jonathan Durden, 49, quit the show after learning his grandmother had died.

Early on in the series Lesley Brain left after claiming she was bored, and 19-year-old Emily Parr was removed for using racist language.

Tree surgeon Liam McGough is currently the 3/1 favourite to win the show, according to bookmakers Ladbrokes. He has already won 100,000 after the prize money was handed out during a surprise twist to the show.
