Model Jasmine Lennard has become the first person to be booted out of the Celebrity Big Brother house and immediately branded her eviction rival Rhian Sugden "a skank".

The 27-year-old, a former finalist in television show Make Me A Supermodel who claims to have had a fling with Simon Cowell, lost out in a "battle of the babes" against the blonde glamour model.

The two had not seen eye to eye during the first week of the Channel Five show and asked about her feisty relationship with Rhian and fellow lads' mag model Danica Thrall by host Brian Dowling, she said: "They are skanky girls, you know what I mean? They are skanks."

She emerged from the house to a cacophony of boos mingled with some cheering from the waiting crowd.

The self-proclaimed bad girl was asked afterwards why she lost the vote to Rhian, saying: "She is nice and dull. People like nice people. I find that hard."

She added: "Not everyone can like you but I'm very grateful to the people who did. I'm so pleased it is over. I would have stayed there for my son but I did not want to carry on."

Jasmine had faced a public "vote to save" after being nominated by her fellow housemates, the actor and musician Martin Kemp, Batchelor star Prince Lorenzo Borghese and Danica in a shock face to face eviction last Friday after just two days in the house.

The 13 celebrity housemates were made to nominate face-to-face and Jasmine faced the public vote alongside Rhian after they got three votes each.

Bookmaker Coral said it had been a costly night, with Jasmine being a huge favourite all week. Coral spokesman Gary Burton said: "The only serious money all week was for Jasmine, we ended up taking 500 bets online, with 450 of them for the former model."

The firm has Julian Clary as the joint favourite to win the show alongside Martin Kemp at 5-2.
