Gemma Collins said it was her time to go as she became the seventh housemate to be evicted from Celebrity Big Brother.

The Only Way is Essex star told her fellow housemates not to cry as she left and added: "I want to see my fella."

Collins was up against former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis and EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook.

Talking to Celebrity Big Brother host Emma Willis after her eviction, Collins revealed she would be going back to work the next day and also addressed her unwillingness to do tasks in the house.

She lost the latest task for the house after failing to crack eggs against against her head, telling Big Brother in the diary room: " I'm really sorry, everyone is going to be so mad with me but I've had a blow dry."

Playing back her moments from the house, Willis asked her why she had gone on a show which was known for being task-orientated if she hated them so much.

"Do you know what, I'm a clothes designer, I'm a creative person, if you said design a dress I'd flourish..." she told Willis, who pressed her on why she didn't want to do the tasks.

She responded: "Because I'm just very nonconformist, I just don't enjoy playing games or tasks."

The final on Friday will see one of the remaining housemates crowned winner and Collins said she wanted Westbrook, Scotty T or American reality TV star Tiffany Pollard to win.

Tensions in the house reached a high as Darren Day moaned to Westbrook about Pollard's inappropriate comments to him.

He ranted: "She knows I don't want to know. It's all bollocks for the cameras!"

Elsewhere Scotty T's shower was a flesh-flashing affair as Pollard walked in and asked him if he "needed help washing", to which he responded by opening the door and flashing her as a joke.

Despite being a favourite to win, Davis was convinced she would "not survive another ( eviction )" and told Scotty T about her plans with Jeremy McConnell once she left, much to his annoyance.

"First place I'm going to go is Dublin. I think Jez will wait for me to come out. From what he was saying is that he'll have a holiday waiting straight for us after the final," she said.

Scotty T moaned to Pollard and Partridge: "She wants to know that Jez still likes her; she needs constant reassurance."

After Davis suggested a game of strip poker later, Partridge was seen walking away and telling Westbrook she is "doing my head in".

:: The Celebrity Big Brother final airs on Friday on Channel 5 at 9pm.
