The double eviction leaves Ulrika Jonsson as the only female finalist

Singer LaToya Jackson and politician Tommy Sheridan have become the latest contestants to leave the Celebrity Big Brother house.

LaToya, 53, the sister of superstar Michael Jackson, was the first out as part of a double-eviction vote.

Channel 4 viewers also voted out former MSP Sheridan, 44, who was greeted with boos as he left the house.

Eleven celebrities entered the house and five are left to battle it out to win the series, which ends on Friday.

The remaining housemates are TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson, Grammy Award-winning US rapper Coolio, Hollywood actor Verne Troyer, singer Ben Adams and TV presenter Terry Christian.

Speaking afterwards, LaToya said her Big Brother experience had taught her to be "more open, more outgoing" with strangers.

Sheridan, who left the Scottish Socialists to set up Solidarity, said he was training to be a lawyer and he had taken part in the show to pay his fees.

He said he hoped to stay friends with "his boys" - Coolio, Terry and Verne - and that he wanted Verne, one of the world's smallest men, to win.

"He's someone who faces up to his problems that make us all ashamed of the moaning we do," he said.
