Time was up for Lydia on Big Brother tonight as she was evicted from the Big Brother house amidst a chorus of boos, while nominee Deena was saved by viewers at home.
As she rushed to leave, Lydia assured her housemates: 'No honestly I'm so happy to see him [her fiancé, Andy Scott Lee]'.
Speaking to Brain Dowling afterwards, Lydia admitted: 'I think I always expected it.'
Asked why she thought people saved Deena, she said: 'I haven't seen it, I can't second guess it.'
Optimistically, she added: 'I could have been gone in the second week, so for me it's been like a month in there.'
'And at the end of the day, I finished it!'
On the subject of playing up to the cameras, she mused: 'I don't think you can be the real person in there, it's so intense, it's so petty, you can't be like you are in the outside world.'
'That's why the reason was so stupid, the custard, it was just an excuse.'
'When I was in there I felt like the others were plotting and I felt like I had to do the same.'
Deana chatted to Big Brother the day before, admitting that she was excited to see what happens on eviction night.
As time goes on I’ll get stronger and be more comfortable here.’
Meanwhile Lydia chatted to Luke A are in the smoking area, saying how much she wants to be saved.
