Big Brother evictee Stephanie has admitted she found her secret mission in the house, involving a fake ‘wedding’ to Mario “horrendous”.

The 19-year-old – who became the first person to be given the boot from the house in series nine – told Davina McCall that pretending to be her fellow housemate’s girlfriend was no easy task

“I didn’t get on with Mario, and it was awkward. And he was 43, I couldn’t sleep in the same bed as him,” she admitted.

“Everybody kept saying ‘why don’t you kiss him’? and I couldn’t do it. It was such a hard task.”

She also admitted she was ‘gutted’ to have been booted off the show after just a week.

“I think being first out is just the worst thing. I think a week is not long enough to show everyone what you’re all about.”

And Mario wasn’t the only housemate she didn’t see eye to eye with, confessing that she found Alexandra intimidating.

“I didn’t feel nervous around her,” she told Davina, “but sometimes I felt awkward, because I don’t like an atmosphere. I think people are intimidated by her. She’s a bully.”

Stephanie had been facing the public vote against Luke, Lisa and Mario after their attempts to convince the other housemates that she and Mario were a couple had failed.

Davina McCall announced the result from the studio so that the nominees could not hear the reaction of the audience outside the house to their names – but Stephanie exited the house to a mixed response, with both cheers and boos from the crowd.
