Stephanie has become the first housemate to get the boot from this year’s Big Brother, after losing out to Mario, Luke and Lisa in the public vote.

The 19-year-old fought back tears after Davina announced the result. She had been the favourite for the chop most of the week, but had been overtaken in the betting by Mario on Friday according to bookmakers Ladbrokes.

However the readers of whatsontv.co.uk had voted her as their favourite to be evicted.

Stephanie found herself up for eviction, along with Mario, Luke and Lisa, after failing to successfully complete a secret mission Big Brother had set the quartet on the show’s opening night.

The task saw Mario and Stephanie trying to convince the other housemates they were a couple – when in fact Lisa is Mario’s real girlfriend. This culminated in a fake ‘wedding’ on Sunday.

However, the foursome were rumbled after the other housemates correctly guessed that Mario and Lisa were the real couple – winning themselves immunity from this week’s public vote in the process.

Stephanie will leave the house later on Friday evening.

Meanwhile, a new twist saw Davina announcing the results from inside the studio where the eviction interviews are held rather than outside with the crowd – meaning the housemates had no idea how the crowd were reacting to the result.
