Arron Lowe has become the fifth person to be evicted from the Big Brother 2012 house following a public vote which saw four housemates nominated.
The 23-year-old was left hanging on when it came to learning his fate, after host Brian Dowling revealed in the first part of Friday’s live show that Deana Uppal and Becky Hannon, both of whom were nominated, were safe from eviction.
However Arron ultimately lost out after receiving fewer votes than fellow nominee Conor, as the public voted for who they wanted to save.
And the model appeared unphased by the reaction from the public, smiling and making hand gestures as he left the house to a resounding round of boos from the crowd.
Afterwards he accused his fellow housemates of being ‘backstabbers’ but added, “We’re all backstabbers, welcome to Big Brother!”
And he admitted that his behaviour in the house could have been better.
“I didn’t realise I was that bad, I swear,” he said of his time there. “But until you walk into that house you don’t realise what you go through when you’re in there.
“I know I upset a few people in the house,” he added, “but I was in there, life is for living, I have no regrets.”
Housemates will nominate for next Friday’s eviction on Monday.
Arron was the third male housemate to get the boot after Chris James and Benedict Garrett were both voted out in previous weeks. However so far only two female housemates – Victoria Eisermann and Lydia Louisa – have been evicted by the public.
