La Toya Jackson and Tommy Sheridan were booted out of the Celebrity Big Brother house on Wednesday night in a shock double eviction.

The Jackson sibling and the socialist politician were given their marching orders just two days ahead of Friday’s live final, after receiving the fewest number of votes from the public.

The show’s fourth evictee La Toya told host Davina McCall: “The house has been great. It’s been wonderful getting to know everybody. I just hate being so shy.”

She described Austin Powers star Verne Troyer as “so cute” and TV presenter Terry Christian as “a very warm, open, friendly person” – but denied flirting with rapper Coolio.

Tommy told Davina that he was not upset to be evicted, saying: “My time was up, I wanted to get out.”

He described former weather girl Ulrika Jonsson as “a formidable person” and admitted that he wanted Verne to win.

Verne, Ulrika, Coolio, Terry and singer Ben Adams will remain in the house until Friday, when the winner is revealed.
