James Jordan dances out of Celebrity Big Brother in surprise eviction

James Jordan is the latest star to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Former Strictly Come Dancing pro James Jordan was the latest casualty of Celebrity Big Brother on Tuesday night (17Jan17).

James was one of the housemates who earned the most nominations as the stars were told they would have to vote in face-to-face nominations. After he, Jedward (John and Edward Grimes) and Braveheart actor James Cosmo all got the most votes from their fellow housemates, viewers voted James off the programme.

Speaking to host Emma Willis in his exit interview, James admitted he was "gutted" to have been shown the door, but was also thrilled to be reunited with wife Ola, labelling the situation a "win-win".

He then revealed his feelings about the remaining housemates, labelling Cosmo a "true gentleman", adding: "Myself and Coleen spent a lot of time with him in the smoking area and he's adorable. He said his highlight of the whole series was when his housemates saved him (from 'hell')."

However, James had some less flattering comments about Calum Best and Jamie O'Hara, who both nominated him for eviction.

"They've just got no banter," James said of Calum and Jamie. "I knew Calum was going to nominate me, and I had a sneaky suspicion Jamie was.

"I forgot he (Calum) grew up in America where they don't have a sense of humour. He's very cool, very chilled out. I just think he doesn't fully get the humour, whereas Jamie does."

James also knocked heads with How Clean Is Your House? presenter Kim Woodburn, who labelled him a "fat slob" after making a late arrival into the CBB house.

However, he insisted things were quickly resolved between the pair, laughing: "She loves me now, she said 'I think you're wonderful'."

James' exit seemed to hit Spencer Pratt the hardest, with the former Hills star left in tears by his pal's departure. And the feeling was definitely mutual, with James calling him a "funny, brilliant guy".
