Big Brother returned to viewer’s screens last Sunday for the first time since 2018 in a new hotly-anticipated series rebooted on ITV.
The influential social experiment, in which housemates live together in a custom-built home for weeks without access to the outside world in a bid to win a cash prize, has re-opened its doors.
With new hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best now presenting the show, the pair welcomed a diverse range of contestants as 16 Big Brother fans from all walks of life entered the house.
The new series is now in full swing and fans are lapping up the drama, the arguments and the new iconic moments.
Yet not everyone can stay, and it is already clear that no one is safe after the first eviction took place on Friday night.
Back with a bang! Big Brother has returned to British television following a five-year hiatus with it’s most diverse cast ever, but who has already left the house?

Farida was the first housemate to be evicted from the ITV revival series of the show on Friday.
The make-up artist jumped up and down and flung her arms in the air as she shouted: ‘Yes!’
She proceeded to hug her fellow housemates before making a swift exit to meet the show’s hosts.
The 50-year-old from Wolverhampton was up for eviction against NHS manager Kerry who was in tears as she waited in suspense for the news to be announced.
An excited Farida said: ‘I had the most amazing time. Thank you everybody for making the effort and coming tonight.’

Kerry and Farida had failed to see eye to eye since entering the house as they clashed over Farida’s work as an online makeup artist.
As Farida discussed her work online where she offers beauty tips with thousands of followers tuning in, an unimpressed Kerry interrupted, asking: ‘To watch you?’.
Prior to entering the house, Farida said that she wanted to represent Muslim women and show that they aren’t suppressed.
She explained: ‘I want to let people know that us Muslims, we really aren’t suppressed. I’m far from suppressed – I used to be a holiday rep!’
While she said her eyes were well and truly on the prize, it seems it wasn’t to be as she became the first contestant to fall victim to the eviction nomination.
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.
Happy: ‘I had the most amazing time. Thank you everybody for making the effort and coming tonight’

‘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!’
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.
