McCririck granted eviction wish

Racing pundit John McCririck has been evicted from the Big Brother house, having made no secret of his wish to be given the shove.

He was the first celebrity evictee in the current series after losing out in the public vote to rapper Coolio.

His eviction came after series winner Josie Gibson quit the show on Thursday, moaning that she was "claustrophobic".

McCririck, who had been wandering around with a small banner saying "evict me please", was not upset at being kicked out.

He told Davina McCall when he went into the house on Tuesday that he would like to be out as soon as possible.

He also said he was only in it for the money.

The curmudgeonly presenter has already been in dispute with producers.

Josie, who began life in the latest series Ultimate Big Brother just hours after winning the £100,000 prize on Tuesday, walked out of a fire exit.

After leaving the house she was filmed kissing former housemate and love interest John James.
