Alex Cannon and Jackson Blyton leave Big Brother house

Alex Cannon and Jackson Blyton have been evicted from the Big Brother house.

The pair were up for the first eviction of the series alongside Laura Carter, Lateysha Grace, Andy West, and Chelsea Singh, but the Others were given the choice of who to get rid of - and in a shock twist, the duo were then sent to stay with them in the secret dwelling.

Explaining the choices made by the Others, Jayne Connery said: "We have decided as a group that Jackson we want out, and Alex we want out.

"All of us see that they are very popular in their house and we want to get them out so when we go in we can go in and cause our mayhem."

While the second house has been kept a secret from the main housemates, it seems the group could have guessed the twist already.

As everyone commiserated with Alex and Jackson after they were told they had been evicted, Marco Pierre White Jr. told the pair not to worry as they were only "going next door".

Meanwhile, the public had been voting for two of the Others to enter the main house undercover.

Kickboxer Andrew Tate and singer Ryan Ruckledge are now on a secret mission and have the chance to earn their place as fully-fledged housemates.

But within minutes of entering the house, the pair let slip they had already seen footage from the show, meaning they may not stay undercover for long.

Andrew's move into the house came amid calls for him to be removed from the show as racist and homophobic tweets he had previously sent came to light.

Channel 5 refused to comment on the shocking claims made by Andrew but they've assured fans that they will not tolerate any "racist or homophobic" behaviour in the house.

The statement read: "Big Brother does not condone any kind of racist or homophobic behaviour in the house.

"If offensive comments of that sort are made in the house, Big Brother will deal with them appropriately, in accordance with its long-standing protocols."
