Gemma Collins leaves CBB as show enters final days


The exit of Gemma Collins from Celebrity Big Brother narrows the field fighting to be crowned winner ahead of Friday's final.

Six housemates remain after the eviction of The Only Way Is Essex star on Tuesday night, with US reality TV personality Tiffany Pollard the bookies' early favourite to win.

Collins became the seventh contestant to be removed from the house after losing a number of tasks, including one challenge when she failed to crack an egg on her head.

In a last-ditch attempt to apologise before the vote she told Big Brother: "I'm really sorry, everyone is going to be so mad with me but I've had a blow dry."

Former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis and EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook also found themselves up for eviction but survived with all to play for alongside Pollard, Geordie Shore's Scotty T, musicals star Darren Day and former EastEnders actor John Partridge.

After her departure was announced Collins told her fellow housemates not to cry, adding: "I want to see my fella."

Talking to Celebrity Big Brother host Emma Willis on leaving she said she wanted Westbrook, Scotty T or Pollard to win.

Looking back over her moments from the house, Willis asked why she had gone on a show which was known for being task-orientated if she hated them so much.

Collins said: "Do you know what, I'm a clothes designer, I'm a creative person, if you said design a dress I'd flourish."

Willis pressed her on why she did not want to do the tasks, and she responded: "Because I'm just very nonconformist, I just don't enjoy playing games or tasks."

:: The Celebrity Big Brother final airs on Friday on Channel 5 at 9pm.
