Kristina Rihanoff evicted from 'Celebrity Big Brother'

Kristina Rihanoff evicted from 'Celebrity Big Brother'

Kristina Rihanoff was evicted from 'Celebrity Big Brother' on Tuesday night (19.01.16).

The 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional had been up against John Patridge, Danniella Westbrook and Tiffany Pollard, but looked thrilled when she was announced as the latest casualty of the house.

Wearing a pretty draped black dress with diamond embellishments, Kristina, who is pregnant with her first child, smiled and beamed for the cameras as she made her way down the steps out of the house and greeted host Emma Willis with a big hug.

Kristina has been criticised by many for revealing her pregnancy to her fellow housemates. Her relationship with Ben Cohen, who she met when he was still married, has been surrounded by scandal since the very beginning, and the sportsman's estranged wife Abby apparently didn't know about the pregnancy until Kristina announced it on the show.

Speaking to Emma after her eviction, Kristina admitted she hadn't originally intended to share her happy news with her fellow housemates but felt it was the right thing to do to explain her special treatment in the house.

She said: "I wanted to keep it to myself at first but then I spoke to the producers and what I felt was that if I was treated differently in the house - if I was always fed and could opt out of tasks - I felt that the housemates would be very upset with me and I wanted to be fair. It would stress me out to keep it to myself."

She added: "Also I'm growing - I'm like a hoover - I eat everything I see in front of me!"

Kristina added she was pleased to be out because she wanted to be away from the arguments in the house.

She said: "It's [the eviction] all I was praying for for the past couple of days. It was very difficult in the house because the arguments became so vicious. It was not my cup of tea at all - pregnant or not pregnant - it's not my game at all."

Tuesday night's 'Celebrity Big Brother' also showed the exit of Angie Bowie - who became the third contestant to voluntarily leave the show, after Jonathan Cheban and David Gest.

Insisting it was an illness that had caused her to leave, Angie said she had enjoyed the experience immensely and had been very touched by her housemates saying they would care for her if she made the decision to stay.

She added: "These are all grand folk."
