Just three housemates are safe from eviction after a "twisted" round of face-to-face nominations on Celebrity Big Brother.

Christopher Maloney, Darren Day and Scotty T escaped the possibility of being evicted on Friday when the contestants were told to say the names of two people they wished to be up for eviction, unaware that just a single nomination would put someone in jeopardy.

Stephanie Davis, John Partridge, Gemma Collins, Tiffany Pollard, Megan McKenna, Danniella Westbrook and Jeremy McConnell now all face the public vote.

Their ranks were one short as viewers watched Angie Bowie say her goodbyes as she became the third person to quit the show.

Speaking to the Diary Room, she said: "They are all grand folk. I never imagined that the garden would be so small when it looks so big. You have to experience and live it to really get a grasp on something."

Bowie had been suffering from illness and left just days after her friend David Gest, who was also unwell.

Collins said: "I think it's the right thing for you to do."

In the day's tasks, revelations and regrets spilled out as the housemates answered a series of yes or no questions about themselves, to which Westbrook and Maloney correctly predicted the majority of answers and won a takeaway for the house.

McConnell and Day confessed they had worn the same pair of underwear twice in the house in the task, while Collins was the only celebrity to reveal she thought her fellow contestants were jealous of her.

"In the house there are certain people bitching and moaning about me, so there has to be a hint of jealously," she said.

Asked if they had regrets about their time in the house, McKenna and Partridge joined McConnell and Day on the yes square.

McConnell said: "I have no regrets in life. We're in a bubble in here. I regret getting a bit too involved (with Davis)."

Despite his comment, McConnell spoke to Davis - who has a boyfriend, Sam Reece, outside the house - in the bedroom later and confessed he had fallen in love with her.

He said: "I just embrace being with you. You fall in love and have a connection with people, it's good to take it home and makes you stronger, it's something we're not going to do ever again.

"We're on Celebrity Big Brother. We'll look back at his and we fell in love on TV. Regardless what anyone says, that's what happened with me. Another chapter of my life. When I look at you I want to look at you more."

She replied: "Stop! You're gonna make me cry."

Celebrity Big Brother airs on  TV3 on weeknights at 9pm.
