Big Ron gets boot from CBB

Ron Atkinson is evicted from the Big Brother House

Former football manager Ron Atkinson has been given his marching orders from the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The 74-year-old looked delighted to hear he had been given the boot by the public vote.

And after hugging his fellow contestants on the Channel 5 show, he was in such a rush to get out he fell over on the stairs leading to the front door.

Atkinson, known as Big Ron, said he was relieved to get out but he had had "one of the best laughs" he has ever had.

He said: "I have had a different sort of experience to anything I have had in life.

"It has been good but H for honesty, I was quite pleased to come out.

"I think I have done my time."

Atkinson appeared to strike up a good friendship in the house with Bruce Jones, Coronation Street's Les Battersby.

He praised the actor saying he was funny.

If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
