Sophie leaves Celeb Big Brother

Sophie Anderton has become the latest housemate to be booted off Celebrity Big Brother – but there was a surprise return for Loose Women panellist Carol McGiffin.

Sophie, 36, sighed with relief as the results of the public vote were announced.

The model, who has appeared in a string of reality shows including I’m A Celebrity… and Love Island, smiled and said: “It’s fine, don’t worry about it” as she said goodbye to her housemates.

But she was greeted with boos from the “brutal” crowd as she left the famous compound.

Sophie, however, conceded she was “the most boring” out of those up for eviction and said she expected the decision.

Dancer Louie Spence, American beauty queen Courtney Stodden, transgender former antiques expert Lauren Harries and Coronation Street actor Bruce Jones – who played Les Battersby on the long-running soap – were all spared eviction after viewers of the Channel 5 series voted for them to remain inside the house.

On Tuesday, Loose Women’s McGiffin was voted out by her housemates.

However, in a surprise twist, the television personality was not evicted and – unbeknown to her housemates – was instead sent to live in solitary confinement.

She returned to the house, much to the shock of those who had rejoiced in her departure a day earlier – unaware their comments were being monitored by Carol.

Upon returning to the house, Carol was allowed to make one “killer nomination” to face Friday’s public vote, and chose Courtney.
