Romeo done! Rapper follows Nicola McLean out of the Celebrity Big Brother house as the remaining six prepare for the final
One of them was a feisty housemate and the other kept their cool but tonight both Nicola McLean and Romeo were sent packing from the Big Brother house.
The two celebrities became the latest to be evicted after the public chose not to vote for them and put them in the final.
Mother-of-two Nicola jumped up from the sofa as soon as host Brian Dowling announced her name and seemed eager to leave the famous abode straight away, whereas Romeo appeared satisfied with the result.
Going home: Nicola McLean was the first celebrity to be evicted in the double eviction
Next out: Romeo was told he had received the fewest votes and had to leave the Big Brother house
'You're going to see Rocky and Striker now,' twins Karissa and Kristina shouted to Nicola as she ran up the stairs.
Wearing a short tight-fitted leopard-print dress with black high heels, Nicola looked nervous as she faced the booing crowd.
Speaking to Brian, Nicola admitted that Big Brother was 'the hardest thing' she'd done in her 'entire life.'
She went on to admit that she'd gotten really upset immediately after leaving the house because she caught a glimpse of her sister.

Keeping his cool: Romeo posed for a photo with Brian before giving his interview
'I've really missed my family,' she said as the crowd continued to boo her.
Speaking of the negative reaction, Nicola said: 'I expected it, but as far as I'm aware I didn't do anything in the house to deserve it.
'Maybe it's because I'm blonde with big boobs.'
Brian then asked the former Page 3 girl if she was disappointed to have not made it to the final this Friday.
'Not gutted, no way,' she answered.
'I had an amazing time in the house and of course it would be great to
be in the final but 'I've missed my family so much.'
The interview soon took an obvious turn towards the subject of Nicola's argument with Denise Welch.
'Not gutted': Nicola admitted that she had missed her family so much so wasn't upset about being evicted
'I didn't thing I was wrong for getting involved,' Nicola told Brian.
'I felt she was wrong for saying it was okay because of what the twins do for a living.
'I'm a former Page 3 girl, but I wouldn't like someone pulling my top down on national television.'
She went on to comment on Denise's behaviour when she has an alcoholic drink.
'As soon as we have a glass of…we all change, but I think Denise changes in a bad way,' she said.
Telling it how it is: The mother-of-two spoke openly about her time in the house
'I'm not trying to be mean. Denise betrayed my trust and she also spoke behind my back.'
Brian then decided he was going to show Nicola the footage of her after a few drinks in the hot tub with Frankie Cocozza.
The blonde wouldn't look at the screen and covered her ears, to which Brian said to her: 'You didn't do anything wrong.'
'I'm a naturally insecure person, what can I say That's me,' she commented.
'I'm like any normal 30-year-old woman with kids who wakes up the next day saying what did I do'
She summed up her Big Brother experience by saying she felt 'privileged to have been given the opportunity,' but added: 'It was certainly hard and I wouldn't do it again.'
Still being booed: At times Nicola couldn't be heard over the negative crowd
She finished by admitting that she would like Gareth Thomas to win, saying: 'He kept me sane in there.'
So Solid Crew star Romeo agreed with the blonde and said he would like to see 'G-man, Denise or Frankie' take home the crown.
Wearing blue jeans, a white shirt and a smart grey blazer, the 31-year-old said he was 'blessed' by the crowd's reaction.
Being in the house for so long, it was nerve-racking to come out,' he said. 'But then walking out to a good reception I felt blessed.
Feeling blessed: Romeo was very grateful for the loud cheers when he left the Big Brother house
'I would have loved to have been in the final but it was the right time for me to come out.'
When Brian asked him why he thought he was sitting in the interview chair, he simply replied: 'Because people forgot to pick up the phone.'
Brian didn't wait long to ask Romeo about the big argument in the house and asked him how it felt to be amidst it all.
'I didn't want to get involved,' he said. 'There was a lot of tension between the girls and it was difficult to break it up.
'When woman argue it's not a man's position to get involved.'

Saying goodbye: Romeo said that Denise doesn't have a bad bone in her body
Brian then went on to say that Romeo was a gentleman, to which he replied: 'I ain't perfect by any means.'
He added that he didn't want to comment on fancying on any of the female housemates and said: 'There's only one woman I've got my heart set on, she's blessed.'
The singer looked genuinely pleased to be out of the house and finished his interview by saying he had 'definitely learned more' about himself.
His and Nicola's last full day in the house was relatively calm and drama-free.
Michael was the first housemate to get up yesterday morning while the other housemates enjoyed a lay in.
'Sorry I can’t bring something more exciting,' he told the cameras as he enjoyed a walk around the garden in the rain.
'Not exciting': Michael apologised to Big Brother for not being more entertaining
Who put this in here Denise accused Michael of leaving the beast hand in the pocket of her fur coat
'When it rains, it’s like a little
reminder from God – don’t forget me, I’m here… In England I always hear
people complaining about the weather, but I love it,' he said before
saying: 'I love you Big Brother.'
But the conversation soon turned to Big Brother being secretive and about evictions.
'Somebody’s gotta go because of that fight,' Romeo said to the actor.
The singer then went on to say that he thought it could be Nicola or twins Kristina and Karissa.
'It’s such a ruthless process, it’s a TV show but we’re all getting so emotionally caught up in it,' Michael added.

Not wasting time: Gareth got stuck in to try and find the hidden cinema ticket
He then found himself getting wound up by Denise Welch again after she confronted him about what she found in the pocket of her fur coat.
The Reservoir Dogs star was the last person to wear Denise's coat and put left a fancy dress beast glove in it which was worn by former housemate Andrew Stone in a previous task.
'Did you put this in here' the Loose Women star asked Michael.
The actor jokingly edged away from her before heading into the bathroom and saying to Nicola: 'Does that women ever stop talking'
Father figure: Michael spent time talking with Frankie in the garden yesterday
Later on in the day, Michael decided to spend some time in the garden with former X Factor contestant Frankie Cocozza.
The pair were talking about memorabilia from Michael’s films with Frankie asking him if he gets to keep the clothes he wears in films.
Michael told the 19-year-old that he
gets to 'walk away' with some items during filming before adding that
there is an exhibition in the U.S. of his memorabilia.
Later that day the housemates got the chance to get dirty when they were given their daily task.
Winner: Romeo managed to find the cinema ticket in the flour mountain in just four seconds
They were given the opportunity to win a movie night for two people in the group and were called to the diary room one by one.
First up to participate was Denise who was presented with a flour mountain and told she had to find a hidden cinema ticket inside it with her mouth.
The housemates had to wear a blindfold while doing so and whoever did so the quickest would win the ticket and could enjoy the movie night with a housemate of their choice.
The winner was Romeo who managed to obtain the ticket in four seconds, and joining him on his special treat was Frankie – who challenged one of the twins to a game of rock, paper, scissors to win the opportunity.

'You know that s**t!' he shouted while hugging Romeo.
Following his fun with flour mountain, Michael spent some alone time in his favourite place – his bed.
Meanwhile, Frankie and Romeo took their seats in the movie room to watch hit comedy The Hangover.
While watching it and tucking into popcorn, Frankie commented that an actress in the movie was fit, which prompted Romeo to ask him if he ‘would.'
Frankie replied: 'Would I There's not a lot I wouldn't mate.'
But from the boys to the girls, Nicola enjoyed a girly chat with the twins later on in the evening.
Almost at the finishing line: The finalists made their way to the diary room and asked Big Brother for wine
They were discussing the previous evictions with one another with Karissa saying: 'Tomorrow I have no idea who will go,' with the other two agreeing.
Nicola added that since Kirk and Natalie left the house, she could not tell any more, but admitted that if she thought about it, she could understand why Kirk Norcross went, but not Natalie.
Perhaps she will be sitting in her hotel room tonight asking herself the same question about her own eviction.
While her and Romeo get used to normal life on the outside, the rest of the housemates are preparing themselves for the final and made their way to the diary room straight away to ask for alcohol saying they wanted to celebrate.
