Georgia Salpa has become the third person to be booted out of the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The 26-year-old model said she was “relieved” after the public voted to keep American actor Michael Madsen in the reality show.

Greek-born Salpa, who lives in Dublin, told host Brian Dowling that the experience was “stressful”.

She was nominated to leave by eight of her fellow housemates.

She said: “I am relieved, it’s so stressful in there and it’s just so tough. I knew everyone was going to nominate me – I actually don’t care that they all nominated me. I am just not the one to start arguments. I just wanted to have fun.

“I am not shy, the first few days in the house I felt really shy and it just took me a really long time to settle in which I didn’t think it would. There is a lot of really loud people in the house and they’re all really overpowering.”

She also quashed rumours of a romance between her and The Only Way Is Essex personality Kirk Norcross by saying she would not date him when he left the house. She said: “He has a girlfriend – who flirts with someone so much and has a girl sitting out there waiting on the outside? If I had a boyfriend I would not be acting like him.”

Georgia said that she wanted glamour girl twins Kristina and Karissa Shannon to win the Channel 5 reality contest.

When he heard he had been saved from the chop, Madsen told Big Brother: “I once heard that John Wayne said that everyone hated him except for the public so I guess I am in good company.”

After the show, Big Brother revealed to the housemates that they would be performing live face-to-face nominations.

The housemates had 30 seconds to write the names of two people on a board. They were then asked one by one to reveal their nominations, giving reasons.

As a result of these nominations every housemate except rugby star Gareth Thomas is up for eviction on Friday, with the public currently voting for the housemate they want to save.

Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
