Series Information
Presenter: Dermot O'Leary
Broadcaster: E4
Winner: John Loughton

NotesEdit

Note 1: After John completed a task on Day 1, he was immune from every eviction during the series.

Note 2: When Amy won a task on Day 10 she won immunity from this weeks eviction. She also got to choose another housemate to be immune. She chose Anthony. Finally, due to losing the task against Amy, Anthony had to put one housemate up for eviction and he chose Victor. On Day 13, celebrity hijacker Joan Rivers selected Emilia, Jeremy and Liam to also face the public vote. It was a double eviction, meaning two housemates would be evicted.

Note 3: The housmates nominated live. They each had two minutes to go to a private area and write down their two nominations. They were not obliged to give reasons for their nominations. They then all announced their nominations to each other at the dining table. Also, because of a double eviction planned that week, it was the three or more housemates with the most nominations that would go up rather than the normal two or more. Had there been no double eviction, Nathan and Jeremy would have been the only two up.

Note 4: There were no nominations in the final week, instead the public voted for who they wanted to win the show. The housemate with the most votes would go on to win the show.
