Celebrity Big Brother contestants Heavy D, Saira Khan, Lewis Bloor and Stephen Bear all face the chop from the reality show house in tonight's eviction.

Storage Hunters UK star Heavy D, Loose Women's Khan and The Only Way Is Essex's Bloor received the most nominations from their fellow housemates to face the live eviction.

Meanwhile, Ex On The Beach's Bear has an eternal nomination, meaning he is up for eviction for the remainder of the series.

Anthea Turner's ex-husband Grant Bovey was the first contestant to be evicted from the house following a public vote.

It came hours after pantomime veteran Christopher Biggins was removed for making a Holocaust "joke" aimed at a Jewish housemate.

Biggins, (67), was given the boot after being given three warnings by Big Brother for his remarks on bisexuality and for a comment about gas chambers to X Factor reject Katie Waissel, who is Jewish.

As housemates queued for the bathroom, he said: "You better be careful or they'll be putting you in a shower and taking you to a room."

He later apologised to the singer and Big Brother for the "trite, ridiculous remark" which was not broadcast but which he discussed in an interview.

Celebrity Big Brother is on Channel 5 at 9pm.
