They’ve only been locked in the Celebrity Big Brother house for a couple of days.
But Stephanie Davis, Scotty T and Jeremy McConnell are already facing a difficult decision, as Big Brother has dropped a huge nominations bombshell on them.
The three housemates had previously been named the ‘most annoying housemates’ by the rest of the group, and were then forced to delve through 1,500 keys to find just one to unlock Danniella Westbrook, Darren Day and John Partridge, who had been exiled to a barren room for the first task.
Uh-oh: Scotty T, Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell were told by Big Brother that they will have to choose who will be up for the first live eviction on Friday night
However, after successfully completing the task and freeing their three celebrity co-stars from The Box in which they had spent their first 24 hours, Big Brother called them into the Diary Room to reveal their fate.
Instead of a reward for their actions, Stephanie, Scott and Jeremy were told their nominations for Friday night’s live eviction show would put whoever they voted for immediately up for the chop.
As the three piled into the Diary Room, Big Brother said: ‘Jeremy, Stephanie and Scotty T. Congratulations! Today you have successfully liberated the Big Brother House. It has been unboxed.
‘But not only that, you liberated John, Darren and Danniella from their box. You must be feeling pretty happy?’
Not such great news: The three stars – who had been forced to free their locked-up co-stars after being dubbed the ‘most annoying housemates’ – were shocked as Big Brother revealed their fate
Reaction: Outside in the lounge, Kristina Rihanoff, Nancy Dell’Olio and Angie Bowie were stunned as they saw the drama inside the Diary Room unfold
Former Hollyoaks star Stephanie seemed dubious as she sat in-between Scott and Jeremy, as she replied: ‘Yeah, but not from the sound of your voice I’m not.’
Big Brother continued: ‘Just imagine how happy they’ll be when they find out that because you completed the task, they won’t have to nominate this week.
‘You three are going to make a killer nomination and each housemate you choose will face the public vote.’
Their stunned reactions were matched by those of the other housemates, who were able to see them on a screen from the living room.

Who will it be? Although Danniella, John and Darren will not have to vote for anybody, the other three’s votes will be highly important
So, while Danniella, John and Darren will not have to put up anybody for elimination, whomever Stephanie, Scotty and Jeremy pick will face the public vote straight away, rather than the usual format which sees the people with the most votes up for eviction.
The first person will be booted during Friday night’s live episode, after just three days in the CBB house.
Danniella had initially volunteered to go into The Box during her first night on Tuesday, and was asked to nominate someone to join the box housemates, who were forced to live without any home comforts for an undisclosed amount of time.
This task meant the beds could be unlocked for the other 13 housemates,
Freedom! Darren, John and Danniella were thrilled as the ‘most annoying’ housemates managed to unlock The Box, a bare room they had been locked in for their first 24 hours
Get them out of there! Stephanie and the others had put every effort into finding the one key needed among 1,500
The former soap star volunteered herself as she already didn’t have her suitcase following West End star Darren and ex-EastEnder John’s nomination earlier in the evening.
Meanwhile, fans will be hoping that former UKIP politician Winston McKenzie will be up for eviction.
The 62-year-old has shocked viewers with his staunch anti-gay views, with over 150 complaining to OfCom about his remarks, which also included controversial comments about immigration and black politicians.
A statement released by the media watchdog read: ‘We will assess these complaints before deciding whether to investigate or not.’
