Simon Gross evicted from 'Big Brother'

Simon Gross has become the first housemate to be evicted from this year's 'Big Brother'.

The 46-year-old theatre company owner was dramatically booted off the Channel 5 series on Tuesday night (12.05.15) less than two hours after entering the house when host Emma Willis surprised the contestants with a Timebomb Twist, which saw viewers select five out of the 15 housemates to randomly stand in front of five podiums which had the their fate inside.

Upon leaving the show, he said: "For my five minutes of fame it was fantastic, I've got a career to go back's showbiz. I've had so many rejections in my career it's just one of many, it's showbiz...I would have been fabulous but that's the way it goes. I think they will have a really fantastic summer."

While Simon was evicted, many of the other contestants faired much better during the game.

Jack McDermott got "immunity" and will receive three immunity passes throughout the series, and Jade-Martina Lynch got "luxury" meaning she will receive a luxury shopping budget, exclusively for her to use at some point during her time in the house.

But Adjoa Mensah received "nothing" and Nick Henderson got "nominations" meaning he will have to nominate his fellow contestants face-to-face during the rest of his time on the show.

A second Timebomb will be dropped on the housemates during a special live episode on Friday (15.05.15) at 9pm.
