Sophie Lawrence Evicted From Big Brother
Londoner becomes eighth housemate to get the boot in this year's series...
The dental nurse from east London had been among the favourites to win at one point - and the remaining housemates were stunned by the news that she had been voted out.
She had only been put up for eviction in the first place by Dexter Koh, who had been instructed to nominate a replacement when he won immunity from eviction himself.
But Sophie told presenter Emma Willis that she had "no hard feelings" and that Dexter "had to do what he had to do".
Willis revealed that the vote had been tight, with only a two per cent difference to the next housemate.
The show's grand finale will now take place on Monday - with Dexter, Gina Rio, Sam Evans, Charlie Travers and twins Jack Glenny and Joe Glenny remaining.
Welshman Sam is the bookies' favourite to win.
