Big Brother's Sam Giffen had to pick someone for eviction, but fans on social media aren't happy


Big Brother contestant Andy West will face the public vote after being selected by Sam Giffen in the latest nominations twist.

Hairdresser and model Sam had to "save and replace" as part of the prize he won in a quiz set by Big Brother.

He was tasked with saving one of the four nominated housemates, and replacing that person with someone else. Sam opted to save Jayne Connery, but former BBC reporter Andy is now at the mercy of the voting public on Friday.

The gay journalist left the corporation over homophobic comments made by boxer Tyson Fury.

Jason Burrill, Jackson Blyton and Laura Carter are also up for eviction.

Earlier, Sam, Andy, Laura, Jackson and Alex Cannon were the victors of the quiz, but they were not all rewarded for their efforts. Model Jackson won a spa experience, while Judge Geordie's Alex bagged a three course meal, and picked Jason to dine with him.

After Sam realised what he had to do, he repeatedly swore. "Oh my god, this is the worst thing!" he said before he chose Andy.

Sam defended his choice by saying he could not save anyone that he had already nominated this week. Fans who took to Twitter to have their say largely did not agree with the choice.

Oh, not Andy!

Well done, Sam
