Gone! Big Brother’s Farida was the first housemate to be evicted from the ITV revival series of the show on Friday
Tense: Farida was up for eviction against NHS manager Kerry who was in tears as she waited in suspense for the news to be announced
Speaking to hosts AJ and Will immediately after her eviction, Farida said: ‘I’m fabulous! How many of you lot would like a week in that house? Well, I’ve been there. It’s priceless!
‘Kerry really, really wanted to be in there. She was in floods of tears, desperate to stay in there. I was quite happy to be out.’
Upon learning that Hallie, Jenkin, Paul, Tom, Henry, Kerry and Olivia had all nominated for her eviction for various reasons based around her opinions and behaviour in the house, she remarked that their views did not matter to her.
She insisted she’s not ‘fake’ as some suggested. She said: ‘That’s fine, they’ve known me for five or six days. Their opinion doesn’t matter. I’m very very true to myself.
‘I would never be fake. People who know me would say that.’
The TikTok star did add that she ‘couldn’t understand’ her housemate Kerry as she insisted that her fellow eviction nominee would not be the kind of person she would socialise with outside of the house.
She said: ‘I couldn’t understand Kerry’s tantrums. She’s a 40-year-old, grown woman and I tried to understand it today.
‘She did tell me she’s a drama queen and she’s probably not the type of person I’d mix with in life because I’ve got a life! To have another week in the house for me would be too much for me!’
Support: She proceeded to hug her fellow housemates before making a swift exit to meet show hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best
Chat: Farida was interviewed by show AJ and Will straight after her eviction on spin-off show Big Brother: Late & Live
Earlier in the episode, the housemates each voted for who they wanted to be put up for nomination.
In a major change for this series, the contestants were only allowed to vote for one person, changing decades of tradition as they voted for two in previous series.
Residents of the show’s famous house were forbidden from voting for Olivia after she won immunity having passed her secret mission which saw her successfully convince her fellow housemates she was the least entertaining of the bunch.
Chanelle was the first into the Diary Room to reveal who she had chosen to nominated.
Choosing Kerry, she said: ‘Kerry, because there’s been numerous occasions where she shoots people down… mainly towards Farida,’ before adding: ‘I find it uncomfortable.’
Hallie was next in, choosing Farida. She said: ‘She can be annoying at times and I feel like she hasn’t made the best of efforts to get to know anyone.
She added that Farida ‘talks over people, interrupts people’ and ‘wants to be the leader of the house’.
Giving the boot: Earlier in the episode, the housemates each voted for who they wanted to be put up for nomination
Harsh? Farida nominated Kerry: ‘She just likes a whole load of gossip. I hate people that gossip. She has mini tantrums. She’s a grown woman that needs to get it together and deal with it’
Honest: Kerry chose Farida, saying: ‘She’s hard work. I find her selfish and I’m finding her hard work at the moment… I feel like she looks down on me quite a bit’
Henry was next to nominate, also choosing Farida, explaining: ‘She’s not been the easiest person.
‘I was having a conversation on the bed with Zak and he was asking about my boarding school experiences.
‘She was talking over me telling Zak I learnt classical music which didn’t actually happen.
‘I just found she’s quite opinionated on something she doesn’t have a perspective on.’
Matty was next to nominate, choosing Kerry. He said: ‘She can be quite loud and sometimes her voice can just go through me… she can be overpowering in group situations and she can moan a lot.
‘It upsets me when people aren’t grateful.’
Trish chose Paul, explaining: ‘I don’t get much deepness from him and I think we’ve had enough days to get to know people up close. I’m quite stimulated by deep conversations and I don’t see he’s capable of that.’
Zak chose Henry, saying: ‘I feel like he’s not spoken to everyone in the house properly. I feel like he’s just keeping himself to the people he’s most comfortable being around.’
Yinrun nominated Kerry, saying: ‘My personality coming into this house, I was very shy. I feel a little bit distant while I was trying to talk to her… It is very hurtful when I feel like someone is not that interested in me.’
Unimpressed: Jordan chose Paul, saying: ‘I don’t really appreciate his humour. All the bodily fluid jokes, I don’t appreciate whatsoever’
Didn’t gel: Hallie was next in, choosing Farida. She said: ‘She can be annoying at times and I feel like she hasn’t made the best of efforts to get to know anyone’
Jordan chose Paul, saying: ‘I don’t really appreciate his humour. All the bodily fluid jokes, I don’t appreciate whatsoever.’
Dylan chose Farida, exclaiming: ‘How can you be in the house with people for five days and not know thier names… She asked me Chanelle’s name today, she called her Janine or something. For her to keep calling me Dean… It’s rude.’
Paul nominated Farida, saying: ‘She told me the reason she wants to be on Big Brother is that she wants to spread the word of Islam and I thought that was amazing but then she later gave other reasons. I don’t really know where she stands.’
Olivia also chose Farida, saying: ‘The day she ate my salmon and corn… she ate my corn and with the same spoon she ate my salmon. It wound me up.’
Noky chose Kerry, explaining: ‘She speaks in a negative way about other housemates… to their face or away from them. She can be quite patronising towards Farida.’
Tom voted for Farida, saying: ‘It does sometimes feel a little more I’m getting spoken at rather than having a conversation.’
Farida nominated Kerry, explaining: ‘She just likes a whole load of gossip… I hate people that gossip. She has mini tantrums. She’s a grown woman that needs to get it together and deal with it.’
Jenkin chose Farida, saying: ‘With Farida I feel like I’m being spoke to, not with. It’s a very one way conversation and it makes me feel like I’m wasting me time. I feel like she has a hidden agenda.
Upset: It came after Big Brother announced that Farida, 50, (pictured) and Kerry, 40, would be the first housemates facing eviction after their fellow housemates had their say
Drama: And upon learning her fate Farida was left fuming over the news as she locked horns with Olivia (pictured), 23
‘When you’re talking about fame and money, and what you can do on the outside, I think, “Is that all you’re here for?”‘
Kerry chose Farida, saying: ‘She’s hard work. I find her selfish and I’m finding her hard work at the moment… I feel like she looks down on me quite a bit… That doesn’t make me feel happy inside.’
Big Brother announced that Farida and Kerry would be the first housemates facing eviction after their fellow housemates had their say.
Upon learning her fate Farida was left fuming over the news as she locked horns with Olivia.
Farida was suspicious that the two oldest housemates had found themselves up for eviction, convinced that the younger contestants had banded together.
She told Kerry: ‘All the youngsters stuck together and they got out the oldest people.’
Overhearing the conversation Olivia struggled to stifle a laugh which resulted in yet another furious clash between the pair.
Elsewhere, Jenkin suspected Kerry was not handling the news as cooly as she appeared, telling Big Brother: ‘I reckon, it’s gonna brew and the more that Kerry is saying she’s not bothered it’s going to sort of start to seem like she is… which might wind up Farida.’
‘It’s like the battle of the titans isn’t it, the two maternal figures.’

Kerry and Farida were revealed to the public as the first two housemates of the revival to be up for eviction during Thursday’s episode of Big Brother: Late & Live.
However, the news left fans of the show gutted, with many predicting there would be less drama with one of the pair leaving the house.
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: ‘Farida and Kerry being the only ones up for eviction is going to rob us of so much potential aggro. gutted.’
While a second posted: ‘I didn’t wanna believe that they would put two iconic housemates Farida and Kerry up for eviction on FIRST WEEK.’
Someone else shared: ‘If we lose Farida or Kerry tomorrow it’s going to be a DISASTER as this tension thats brewing is giving me life and I need to see them carry on driving each other potty.’
End of the road: After the housemates made their choices the public decided Farida should be sent packing after she was nominated along with Kerry
And someone else wrote: ‘Ughhhh why do I have to pick between Kerry and Farida when people like Dylan, Zak, Paul, Noky, Tom Henry and Matty exist.’
A fifth commented: ‘Can’t stand either of them, but they offer great entertainment value and I really don’t want either Farida or Kerry to gooo.’
With a seventh writing: ‘If I had my way both Kerry and Farida would be staying!!! I was gagging to see their feud hit boiling point, so many others deserved to go first.’
Big Brother continues on ITV2 and ITVX on Sunday at 9pm.
BIG BROTHER 2023: MEET THE CONTESTANTS!
HOW WOULD YOUR FRIENDS DESCRIBE YOU? ‘Loud and messy, and irritating probably.’
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO GET NOMINATED FOR? ‘I think I might potentially offend some people. My mouth moves faster than my brain.’
PROFESSION: Stay-at-home mum
WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH THE PRIZE MONEY IF YOU WON? ‘I think my first priority is to sort out my housing situation. The housing crisis is just ridiculous and my housing situation has been unstable. It brings me a lot of mum guilt because I’ve got a young child. It’s my biggest incentive and motivation to win.’
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO GET NOMINATED FOR? ‘Being cantankerous and acting as if I don’t want to be there even if I do in my heart. They might nominate me for being disengaged perhaps or not paying everyone an equal amount of attention. They may feel left out but I can’t help that.’
TELL US AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOURSELF: ‘I appeared on a TV show called The Last Leg about amputees – two years before I lost my leg!’
WHAT MADE YOU APPLY TO BECOME A BIG BROTHER HOUSEMATE? ‘I love challenges. I’ve had so many amazing times in my life, like going to Miss Universe as Miss Great Britain. I like to do something different and I think this is the next challenge I want to conquer. I want to show people what pageant girls are really like and disprove a lot of stereotypes around them. I also show what it’s like being a woman who’s worked in male- dominated fields. I want to show that women are capable of doing anything they want.’
PROFESSION: Security officer
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO GET NOMINATED FOR? ‘Being the biggest wind up, eating all the food and being the loudest housemate.’
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO GET NOMINATED FOR? ‘I think when people are in that hangry state, that’s when I’ll wind people up and grind their gears. I think they’ll nominate me for being full on, and for my brutal honesty and oversharing of opinions.’
PROFESSION: Make-up artist
TELL US AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOURSELF: ‘People are always surprised when I say I got married at 43. Or also that I’m an ex-holiday rep in Gran Canaria and Menorca.’
PROFESSION: Youth worker
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO GET NOMINATED FOR? ‘Being lazy and having an opinion. I’m quite opinionated, I like speaking my mind and not many people like that. I’m quite real.’
PROFESSION: Customer support agent
WHAT PART OF THE EXPERIENCE ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO? ‘I’m most excited about being surrounded by so many people from different walks of life. I don’t think I will ever live in a house again with so many different kinds of people. I’m from China and I think it will help me be more immersed in British culture.’
PROFESSION: Dental therapist
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO BE NOMINATED FOR? ‘Probably just for being annoying. In Wales, we have this saying, “I’ll do it now in a minute.” So like, if I went to make food and I left a dish on the side, I have all good intentions of washing it but I’d be like, “I’ll do it now in a minute,” and it might be three hours later before I do it. So probably for silly stuff like that.’
WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH THE PRIZE MONEY IF YOU WON? ‘Pay off my debts and help my family out. I’ve also been saving up to build a park in my village back at home in Thailand because where I grew up, there’s no parks or playgrounds.’
FROM: Isle Of Man
HOW WOULD YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY DESCRIBE YOU? ‘They would say I’m quite like a lucky person or someone who really wants to experience life to its fullest and do everything that it has to offer. Someone who is kind and fun and doesn’t take life too seriously.’
PROFESSION: Food writer
HOW WOULD YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY DESCRIBE YOU? ‘I think they would say I’m particularly sociable and very chatty. I mean, I’ll be honest, my parents would definitely say I’m a bit of a snob but I take it as a compliment. I think it means you’ve got high standards and good taste. They’d say I was quite a peculiar child.’
PROFESSION: NHS manager
WHAT MADE YOU APPLY TO BE A BIG BROTHER HOUSEMATE? ‘I love the programme. It is, for me, the ultimate reality TV show ever. I’ve got multiple sclerosis and so the reason why I never applied before is because I always saw those whacking great big stairs to get into the house. It just felt a little bit unachievable because for the first three years of my illness I was in a wheelchair. When I saw it was coming back and searching for real people from all walks of life, I thought, this is my year.’
