Ben became the sixth housemate to be evicted from the Big Brother house after polling the highest share of viewers' votes.
The 30-year-old writer and broadcaster from London emerged smiling from the house dressed in a suit and tie.
Host Davina McCall spent some of last night's double bill inside the house as part of this week's Ignore The Obvious task, where housemates had to do their best not to acknowledge or react to strange events.
Fellow housemates Andrew, Dave and John James had also faced the public vote this week.
'Posh' housemate Ben was called 'quiff head' for his big hair, and known for his love of history and divas, plus his apathy towards all the tasks.
The show was capped by a guest appearance from Dublin twins Jedward.
