And proving that he really is Mr Nice Guy, former rugby star Gareth Thomas was the only one spared as all the housemates made their choice of who they would like to see leave this Friday night.

Before they were called up, Frankie shook his head at the live nominations and said: 'This is the most evil thing, I don't think I can do it.'

Each celebrity was then given a chalk board on which they had to write the names of the housemates they wanted up for eviction.

Denise was the first one up and stood in front of her fellow celebrities and announced who she was voting for as she said: 'Michael and the twins. Michael because of the constant arguing which is causing an atmosphere.'

The Playboy twins, Karissa and
Kristina simply said, 'Kirk and Natalie,' while Natalie also kept it
simple and said: 'Michael and the twins.'

Romeo
was next up and looked deflated as he turned his board over to reveal
his nominations and said: 'I nominate Frankie, because they way he talks
about women can be overboard. And Michael because there's a slight
imbalance in the house.

Unhappy: Michael kept his head down and looked quite sad as he voted for Denise and Nicola

Michael, who looked upset, then stood up and simply declared, 'Denise and Nicola,' and then it was Frankie's turn to vote.

He said: 'I'm voting for the twins
because if I didn't start a conversation, they wouldn't talk to me and I
also vote for Romeo, and the only reason being because no one else will
nominate him.'

Kirk voted
for Michael and the twins because, 'we don't see eye to eye', and then
Nicola got up and got quite emotional as she announced she would be
voting for Michael and the twins.

Gareth then said: 'I'm voting for the twins because when they were with Georgia, I found it difficult to get into a conversation with you, and Michael, purely because I want him to see his family.'

After all the housemates had voted, Big Brother revealed that they were all up to face the public vote with the exception of Gareth who no one had voted for.

The face-to-face nominations were revealed on the Big Brother spin-off show and the live eviction will take place this Friday night.
