Boos as the belly dancer is booted off Big Brother

Teetotal belly dancer Tashie Jackson became the first housemate to be evicted from Big Brother, to boos from the crowd.

Housemates Harry Blake and Aaron Allard, who won the most votes, where also up for eviction but Tashie (21) was the the first to leave the reality show.

Tashie, below, who speaks five languages and also appeared as an extra in a Harry Potter movie, was the bookies' favourite to get the boot. She told housemates she was in "shock" and that did not understand why the crowd was booing.

And she told host Brian Dowling: "I am full of a lot of emotion right now, I thought as long I was just myself I would do well in the house."

When she was asked what she thought about the crowd's negative reaction she said: "You feel like the world is against you but at the same time you hear nice things said and I just focus on those."

She said she wanted fellow contestant Aaron Allard to be evicted next.

Fourteen wannabes, including a model, a wrestler and a Megan Fox lookalike entered the house on September 9 and are competing to win £100,000 prize money.

Viewing figures for the C5 Big Brother are 47pc down on the last Channel 4 shows.
