Lauren Carre has become the latest person to be evicted from the Big Brother house after losing the public vote to fellow housemate Luke Anderson.
The 20-year-old, from Jersey, had previously survived the eviction vote on the week that Benedict Garrett left the house but was not quite so lucky this time after scoring the lowest number of votes from viewers, in the seventh public vote of the series.
And she took the news with quiet disappointment while a relieved Luke admitted that he was ‘upset’ for her, despite his happiness at remaining in the house.
However Lauren went on to get a largely positive reception from the crowd, who greeted her with cheers as she made her exit.
Afterwards she admitted to Brian Dowling that the atmosphere in the house was “horrible”.
“Everywhere you look, people are talking and whispering, you walk into a room and people stop,” she said. “I didn’t realise paranoia got so bad in there, it’s really hard.
“But then, like, they’d be really nice to you for ten minutes, and then next thing they’d bite your head off.”
She confessed she had also been “a bit guilty” of such behaviour, adding that she had not been surprised at her nomination.
“There’s a group in there who find one reason to pick on someone and just all go at it,” Lauren said.
The housemates will nominate again on Monday for the next eviction of the series.
