Russian boxer Angel McKenzie has become the fourth casualty of the Big Brother house – with Halfwit (aka Freddie) escaping eviction once again.

The 35-year-old – who received 81 per cent of the public vote – had been the bookies’ favourite to leave, with Paddy Power earlier offering oddsof 1-25 on her being booted from the house.

In fact, she had been so certain that she would be evicted that she had already started packing earlier on in the day. When Davina announced the result she greeted the news in silence, simply smiling.

It is the third week in a row that Halfwit has faced the public vote, having previously seen off evictees Sophia and Cairon.

“You’re like a cockroach,” Noirin told him – suggesting he could survive anything.

It was the first time that fitness fanatic Angel had been nominated for eviction, following a difficult week in which she had made herself unpopular with her fellow housemates with some of her remarks.

Most notably she suggested that Noirin “looked three months pregnant”.
