Celebrity Big Brother: Ginuwine becomes the fifth star to leave the CBB house
Ginuwine has left Celebrity Big Brother after eviction by the public vote after the first whole-house nomination.
In contrast to the previous nominations which were decided by one team of housemates, all of the housemates nominated in Tuesday’s live eviction.
Speaking to Emma Willis immediately after their eviction, the ‘Pony’ singer discussed the struggle that came with nominating his fellow housemates.
“Everyone likes each other. It’s very hard with people that you like and who have made a difference in your life,” he said.
Much of Ginuwine’s time on the show focused heavily on the much-speculated relationship between him and reality star Ashley James.
This relationship frequently referred to as a ‘showmance’ both in and outside of the house, has been off and on for the duration of the show.
In his eviction interview, Ginuwine said that the relationship was a real connection rather than a tactical move on either of their parts.
He said: “We really clicked, and in a place like that it’s foreign territory for and we clicked.”
Ginuwine made headlines after rejecting India Willoughby, who was then branded a victim by other housemates.
Speaking to the rapper in an earlier episode, the controversial broadcaster India Willoughby asked: “Would you go out with a transgender?”
He answered: “I believe it’s your choice and I would choose not to.”
Five housemates were nominated in total for eviction on Tuesday night.
As well as Ginuwine, Wayne Sleep, Ann Widdecombe and Daniel O’Reilly were also nominated for Tuesday night’s live eviction.
Each housemate nominated two other housemates for the eviction.
Love Island star Johnny Mitchell was given the most votes from the other housemates, with four nominations.
Bookmaker’s favourite to win Courtney Act was given two nominations whilst Courtney’s in-house partner in crime Andrew Brady was not nominated by anyone.
Upon hearing her nomination for eviction, Ann Widdecombe said, unsurprised: “You don’t say.”
Tuesday night’s episode allowed John Barnes to comment on his surprise eviction on Monday night.
John caused controversy during his time in the house after he made comments about gay men that many deemed homophobic.
Speaking to host Emma Willis, John reflected on his time in the house and the controversy he had inadvertently caused, saying that his eviction ‘was a bit of a shock.’
Responding to the controversy, John said: “I was very disappointed by some of the suggestions of me being homophobic.”
