The nation has spoken! 82% of the voting public have backed Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty by evicting Jade Goody out of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’.
Jade, 25, has become the third housemate to be booted off the show. She was hot favourite to leave after being accused of racism following angry clashes with Shilpa Shetty.
Instead of emerging from the house to face the usual crowds, the former dental nurse was being taken straight to a studio for an interview with presenter Davina McCall.
A worried looking Jade was close to tears after hearing the result of the public vote.
Jade, who now has some inkling of the race row that is raging outside the Big Brother house, was reassured that Davina would look after her when she left.
Earlier, TV bosses banned crowds from confronting Jade, saying the evictee would be unaware of the “heated public debate” that has been raging outside the house. Media watchdog Ofcom has received around 40,000 complaints about the show – some of them over editorial bias.
Realising her behaviour had sparked a race row, Jade had pleaded with the show’s producers to let her avoid the eviction night crowd.
She said she was “petrified” by the idea of facing the public “because people think I’m a racist bitch”.
“I’ve never been more scared in my life. I swear to that,” she said.
The Big Brother veteran will also be spared the prospect of the post-eviction press conference.
