It was a shocking second eviction on Big Brother 2017 Friday night as Imran Javeed got the axe, but wife Sukhvinder walked out right behind him.
The second eviction of the series saw six housemates up for the chop. The husband and wife duo were joined by Charlotte, Kayleigh, Raph and Rebecca as the viewing public all voted to save their favourite housemate for the second time this series.
Host Emma Willis talked to the house as she revealed that Imran had received the fewest votes from the viewers and was evicted. As the result was revealed, the wife looked to her husband shaking her head. As Imran got up to say his goodbyes, Sukhvinder got up, announcing she was leaving as well.
“No. No. I have to go!” she told her fellow housemates, who tried to convince her to stay.
Speaking in their unexpected joint interview, the couple told Emma the plan was always to leave together – even before entering the house.
“We were always going to leave together,” Imran said. “People have been trying to split us up for years. Even Big Brother can’t split us up!”
Sukhvinder was the centre of several house arguments and leaned on her husband to calm her down. Emma mentioned in an online interview that show bosses had prepared for the situation in case one of the couple did walk.
Sukhvinder clashed with Kayleigh Morris in Thursday night’s highlight show as part of their ‘VIP task’. The ladies became visibly upset and sweated at each other, leaving Sukhvinder nearly in tears.
“People are selfish and self absorbed and don’t really give a s***t about other people,” she said in her interview with Emma.
After losing four housemates in a span of 12 days, it is expected that some new housemates will be going the house in the coming days.
Big Brother 2017 continues nightly at 9pm on Channel 5.
