The two Big Brother housemates with the least number of public votes will be evicted on Tuesday night, ahead of the final show on Friday.

A vote reading will take place at 8pm during the show on Tuesday, after which the two housemates with the least votes will be forced to leave.

Mikey is the bookies’ favourite to win Big Brother 2008, with odds of 6/5 in his favour, while Mohamed is the least likely to last until Friday, with odds of 100/1 to win.

But his victory in the Masterchef task on Monday may help to improve his ratings. He was crowned Big Brother executive chef along with Sara after winning the Masterchef task.

The pair were awarded wooden spoon trophies which Big Brother said they should ‘keep and treasure forever’.

After receiving his trophy in the diary room, Mohamed said: “I am speechless, me and my partner in the kitchen did a very good job and worked very hard together.

“We started off in a bad mood today, and we didn’t think we were going to cope in the kitchen very well.”

His partner, Sara, agreed: “When I found out Mohamed was my partner, I thought, ‘Oh this isn’t going to go down well’.

“But actually, I’m pleasantly surprised. We worked very well as a team, we complemented each other nicely and then we won.”

The competition was judged by professional chef Rex, who had scolded Sara earlier for laughing too much during the task.
