Big Brother 2015 kicked off last night with 16 contestants arriving at the infamous house only to be reduced to 15 by the end of the show thanks to a shock eviction.
Simon Gross (46) was the unlucky casualty of Big Brother's first evil Timebomb twist and was evicted after five minutes in the company of his fellow housemates.
