US celebrity blogger Perez Hilton and 90s pop star Kavana were evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house on Wednesday.

Perez had been the centre of much of the acrimony among the celebrities in the house, especially with onetime finalist of The Apprentice Katie Hopkins and US soul singer Alexander O’Neal, who left the house after yet a series of disputes with the blogger.

Perez told Big Brother host Emma Willis that he had been taking sleeping pills for the past week and a half in the house and that he’d wanted to leave for two weeks.

The 36-year-old father of one said: “‘It has been a traumatic experience. I experienced so much pain in that house.”

Kavana’s stint in the house was less controversial, and the gay Mancunian singer was especially popular with the female hosuemates, including Patsy Kensit and Cami Li.

Kavana told Emma: “I have never experienced anything like that in my entire life… [the house was] a freak show night and day.”

Kavana chose Michelle Visage as the housemate he wants to win Friday’s final, while Perez thought Calum Best would be the worthiest winner.
