Calum Best evicted from Celebrity Big Brother house

Model Calum Best has become the 10th celebrity evicted from the Big Brother house.

Best was booted out in a live eviction after receiving the fewest public votes, after viewers began voting for which housemate they want to win this year's show.

The 35-year-old, who left to cheers from the crowd outside, admitted he was "sad" not to have made it to Friday's final but said the remaining celebrities were "very worthy opponents".

Comparing his time in the house to his first stint on the show in 2015 when he finished in third place, Best told host Emma Willis: "It hasn't been tougher with the people, it's been tougher with what Big Brother brought to the table."

Best's eviction comes after Jamie O'Hara was handcuffed and escorted from the house by two fake policemen in a shock back-door eviction on Monday's show.

In an interview with Willis at the beginning of Tuesday's live eviction, the footballer said he was upset he did not get to say goodbye to his housemates - particularly love interest Bianca Gascoigne.

"I was gutted because I didn't get to say goodbye to everyone," he said.

"I wanted to give (Bianca) a kiss and say I'll see you on Friday but it was difficult."

O'Hara, who was previously married to model Danielle Lloyd, described Gascoigne as an "amazing girl", adding: "I could definitely fall in love with her, for sure."

He said he was "surprised" to find out that she had a boyfriend outside the house.

"It came as a bit of a shock but she made that decision," he said.

"When you're in there for 25 days... we had a connection, it was only natural that we were going to end up together."

The Celebrity Big Brother final will take place on Friday.
