Lewis Bloor and James Whale evicted from CBB

Lewis Bloor and James Whale have been evicted from 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The duo were dumped from the reality TV show in a double eviction on Friday's (19.08.16) episode after losing the public vote to fellow housemates Sam Fox and Stephen Bear.

Earlier in the show, Ricky Norwood discovered he had been saved from eviction.

This is the first double eviction of the series and 'TOWIE' star Lewis and radio host James have become the fifth and sixth housemates to be voted out.

As Lewis left the house he shouted to Marnie Simpson, "Marnie I love you babe and I'll see you in six days' time."

Speaking in his elimination interview, he said: "I'm gutted to be leaving Marnie but I felt that tonight was my time to go.

"She's a top bird. It'll be the first time in 21 days that I wake up on my own. I love her, I'm protective of her."

When Emma jokingly asked if they planned to wed and if she should buy a hat, Lewis admitted it could be a possibility but said he would have plenty of competition from other guys.

He added: "I feel like she's my best friend and I fancy her as well. She loves me for who I am and I love her."

He also defended controversial contestant Bear, saying: "He's a good kid and he's out to prove to the world that he deserves it.

"I've been judged in the past for my actions so I don't judge and I believe Bear is a good man."

James added: "Bear is incredibly difficult as everyone has seen but I've had some great talks with him. He's really switched on and if he can control the side that goes too far sometimes, I think he could be an amazing asset to this country. If somebody guides him, if he reigns it back a bit and use that energy in the right way, he'll do well."

James also revealed he was happy to be evicted.

He said: "I've been married quite a long time and I've never not spoken to Mrs W for such a long time. And I was missing my dogs. So I was actually hoping to leave."
