Michelle and Vanessa given the BB boot

Michelle Bass and Vanessa Feltz were booted out of the Big Brother house in a double eviction ahead of tomorrow night's grand finale.

Bass, Feltz and "Nasty" Nick Bateman faced the public vote after being nominated by housemates. Bateman survived the vote and will be among the seven remaining Big Brother housemates battling each other for the Ultimate Big Brother crown.

Wearing a white, thigh-skimming dress, Bass (29) waved at the crowd as she left the house.

Interviewed by host Davina McCall, Bass said of her eviction: "I was really ready to go. I decided I was going."

Asked why she was nominated, she replied: "It could be anything."

Bass appeared embarrassed when played footage of her risque antics during her first appearance in the Big Brother house.

In response to other housemates' observations she had become more introverted, she added: "I'm actually a lot more confident and relaxed now. I was younger then, more carefree, get your boobs out all the time.

Feltz was later named as the second housemate to be shown the door.

As McCall congratulated her on lasting six days, Feltz said: "It was a really big thing. Last time I just made three nights and four days and I cracked up, I was in a right old state. I wanted to get a bit beyond that and I have, so for me it's a personal best and I'm really delighted."
