Celebrity Big Brother viewers slam Bradley Riches' 'brutal' eviction as 'saddest moment in CBB history'

Celebrity Big Brother viewers slam Bradley Riches' 'brutal' eviction as 'saddest moment in CBB history'

We miss him already.

This season of Celebrity Big Brother has been nothing short of a rollercoaster.

After fans had to wait six long years for the return of the iconic reality show, it has had many moments that have enthralled viewers.

Who could forget Ekin-Su questioning Kate Middleton’s uncle on her whereabouts?

Or former X-Factor judges Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne having in-depth and savage conversations about a-listers including Anna Wintour and Adele?

It has been TV gold since launch night - but now viewers are slamming the show for a brutal decision.

During last night’s show, 22-year-old actor of Heartstopper fame, Bradley Riches, was unceremoniously booted off the show, just one day before the big final.

Earlier on in the episode, the remaining housemates were visited by loved ones as a surprise to catch up.

It gave us emotional scenes as David Potts was greeted by his best friend, and Colson Smith got to see his beloved mum.

Fern Britton couldn’t help but cry when reunited with her daughter, and Nikita Kuzmin melted viewers’ hearts as he got to see his girlfriend.

Bradley's exit was a huge shock.

When it came to Bradley’s turn, it was much more sinister.

He was greeted by Celebrity Big Brother host, AJ Odudu, who said: "As you can see, neither a friend or family member is here for you.

"That is because the public have been voting. I can now reveal that the 7th housemate to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house is you."

Bradley responded: “I've had so much fun. I didn't think I was going to make it this far. I'm so proud of everyone and I'm very thankful, very grateful and very happy.”

He was then allowed back into the house to quickly say goodbye to his housemates.

But that wasn’t the end of Bradley’s shock treatment.

He was evicted via the back-door, missing out on all of the fanfare and crowd interaction that has defined other housemates’ evictions.

Fans were not happy.

One wrote on X: “Even though he wasn’t my winner, I believe, out of everyone left, Bradley deserved an audience to leave to.”

Another said: “This is such a sad way to go out, Bradley was expecting his friends and family.”

A third echoed: “Nah that eviction is BRUTAL. Bradley deserved SO much better, wow.”

Following his exit from the show, Bradley appeared on Celebrity Big Brother's Late & Live to debrief.

He said: "When AJ walked in, I was just, I knew what came, the red lights happened, I was like yeah. This is happening.

"I just felt so grateful, so happy, I had the best time and I just thought I can't be upset, I can't get upset, I'm just grateful of that experience with all those amazing people and I just had the best time."

ITV declined to comment.

Tonight’s final will crown Nikita, Louis, Colson, Fern or David as the winner of Celebrity Big Brother 2024.
