Karthik Nagesan evicted from Celebrity Big Brother

Karthik Nagesan evicted from Celebrity Big Brother

Karthik Nagesan has been booted from 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The former 'Apprentice' contestant has found himself named as the second star to leave the Channel 5 reality show during Friday's (11.08.17) broadcast of the show, shortly after 'Mob Wives' beauty Marissa Jade was sent packing earlier this week.

Since Thursday (10.08.17), fans of the show had been voting between Karthik and fellow housemates Sarah Harding, Chad Johnson, and Trisha Paytas as to who they wanted to save from eviction, and unfortunately for the budding entrepreneur, he proved to be the least popular with viewers.

Speaking to host Emma Willis after leaving the house, Karthik said: "These moments come few and far between, unless I become a real celebrity after this. I might you never know. I thought OK, soak it in and enjoy the experience."

And the star admitted he was "surprised" when he found himself up for eviction, particularly when fellow contestant Jordan Davies voted to put his fate in the hands of the public, as Karthik thought they were friends.

Asked if he was shocked that housemates had nominated him, he said: "A little surprised yes. Especially surprised with Jordan. I thought Jordan and I get along really well together. Surprised with Chad as well."

The businessman also claimed he felt like an outsider whilst in the house, as he hasn't "experienced the limelight" as much as some of the other celebrity contestants.

He said: "Perhaps these people have more in common with each other, having experienced what they have being in the limelight a lot more than I have."

Karthik also told Emma he would like to see 'Gogglebox' star Sandi Bogle walk away from the infamous house as the winner, which would see her bag £50,000 for her chosen charity.
