The final housemates in the running to win Big Brother have been revealed.
They are Henry, Jordan, Noky, Olivia and Yinrun.
During tonight’s episode, the housemates were given the chance to have ‘Seven Minutes in Heaven’ that forced them to choose between their own luxury or to pass it on.
Activities included a massive selection of sushi, a dance party and Henry’s dog even being bought into the house for some cuddles.
However later in the show, a moment that saw them all read out letters from home took a turn when the 24-year-old doctor the Isle of Man discovered he had been eliminated.
Reading out his letter, Yinrun shared what at first seemed to be an heartfelt message from a loved one, however when she got to the end it concluded with the addition: ‘But unfortunately your time here is up.’
As the lights dimmed, it was revealed the public vote had resulted in him being the 11th housemate to be evicted.
He then had 30 seconds to leave the house and then said he knew it was his ‘time to go’ when speaking to Big Brother.

While Matty didn’t seem too devastated, viewers said they were struggling watching his brutal eviction.
‘Nah that was the coldest eviction I have ever witnessed. He didn’t deserve that,’ one person posted on X, formerly Twitter.
‘Being evicted by letter is just a brutal final twist,’ someone else shared.
Another added: ‘BIG BROTHER IS STRAIGHT UP SAVAGE! No holding back, just going straight for the jugular.’
Meanwhile others said it was ‘ruthless’ and the ‘most brutal cruel eviction in Big Brother history’.

Throughout his time in the house, Matty found himself caught up in a love triangle with Jordan and Henry, however during an appearance on the show last week, his boyfriend Connor stressed to Matty he hadn’t done anything wrong.
‘Hello my love, I hope you’re doing well. I know the past week or so has been pretty tough with everything that’s been going on. And I just want you to know that you have done nothing wrong, and you don’t need to second guess yourself,’ he said.
‘Just because other people can’t handle their emotions the same way or as maturely, doesn’t mean that that responsibility is on you.’
The couple have an open relationship.
Tomorrow night, one of the finalists will be declared the winner of Big Brother 2023 and win a life-changing cash prize of £100,000.
While AJ had revealed on Wednesday night’s episode that the next evictee would be announced on Thursday, the result was revealed ahead of time.
Matty was clearly missing from the live feed for three hours, and the dialogue between the five remaining housemates was very telling.
Chatting together they mentioned how Matty’s exit was ‘legendary’ as he ‘left through the letter reading’.

‘What a way for Matty to go,’ Jordan declared as well.
The power to now decide the winner lies with viewers, with voting for the live final now open exclusively via the Big Brother app.
People are being asked to vote for the housemate they want to win Big Brother.
The vote will close during tomorrow night’ show, during which hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best will crown the winner of Big Brother 2023, as well as speak to all five finalists in their first live interview since leaving the Big Brother house.
