Since Tuesday, the public have been voting to decide whether bisexual Carole, Jonathan or the gay contestant Seány should be the second housemate to be publicly evicted from the Big Brother house.

During tonight’s programme, Davina McCall announced live to the house that the next person to be evicted would be Seány. He received 44.5% of the total votes cast.

On hearing the news, Seány and the other housemates looked stunned.

Fellow nominee Jonathan sat open mouthed, then said “I can’t believe that”.

“It’s ok guys, it’s cool, it’s cool” said Seány, still looking shocked. Gerry started to cry, saying “oh my god … where did this come from?” and Charley added “I’m not being funny but how can they take Seány out?”

“I’m really shocked” admitted Seány, hugging his fellow housemates.

“Seány’s been in for two weeks, the public have seen us for three,” considered a glum Carole. “I’m just shocked really. Honestly.”

Genuinely upset, Seány put on a brave face and sipped some wine.

Seány was then summoned to the Diary Room.

“I really don’t believe that he is leaving,” Gerry told Ziggy on the sofa. “Do you think this is a bluff? I mean, they just gave the prize money away… I don’t think this will be the last we’ll see of Seány. I hope not.”

Seány is a charity worker and says he was popular at school but missed out on being a head pupil as the teachers thought it would go to his head.

In his late teens he went to the White House to meet Hilary Clinton, for whom he had written a poem.

He says his dream job would be inventing and testing new toys, and describes himself as having big hair and big attitude.

He loves Girls Aloud and admits he is heavy handed with the amount of toilet roll he uses.

His philosophy is: “We’re all refugees – we stay a while and then we move on.”
