Garrett evicted from Big Brother

Evicted housemate Benedict Garrett will not be occupying the the new Big Brother chair again

Former porn actor Benedict Garrett has become the third housemate to be kicked out of the Big Brother house.

The 32-year-old was nominated for eviction earlier this week alongside 20-year-old student Lauren Carre, but lost in the public vote to become the third housemate to be voted out of Big Brother summer 2012.

Garrett, from east London, hit the headlines when it emerged he was a former porn actor and also worked as a stripper while teaching at a school in Ilford.

The General Teaching Council found his dual life amounted to unacceptable professional conduct last year, but he was told he could keep his job.

He looks after an 18-year-old foster son, calling it the greatest experience of his life, and previously said he hoped being in Big Brother would act "as a platform for challenging perceptions".

Leaving the house, Garrett told Brian Dowling, who hosts the Channel 5 programme: "I would have loved to stay in and enjoy the experience."
