Big Brother viewers are not happy with Jenkin (Picture: ITV)
Big Brother viewers have vowed to ‘get Jenkin out’ after branding his behaviour towards other housemates ‘cruel’.
The 26-year-old – who celebrated his birthday in the house last week – started out his BB journey as a hit with viewers, who loved his sarcastic comments and hilarious reactions to tasks and punishments.
However, over the last four weeks, he has massively dropped in many people’s rankings, with viewers now calling for his eviction due to his treatment of fan favourite Yinrun.
On Sunday night, audiences caught up with all the weekend antics from the house, including the Hunger Games task.
Split into two ‘districts’, housemates had to tackle a series of physical challenges in order for one of them to win immunity, while another was put up for eviction ahead of nominations.
Unfortunately for Jenkin, his birthday wasn’t so happy, as he was voted to be up for eviction this week, while Chanelle had plenty of reasons to celebrate as she is now immune.

Things got emotional, though, when Yinrun, 25, revealed her reasons for wanting Jenkin to face the public vote.
Having previously sobbed over feeling ‘forgotten’ in the house, Yinrun revealed it was Jenkin who had been ignoring her.
‘I always want to try to talk to you but, a lot of the time, I get a greeting and a walk away,’ she told him through tears.
‘I’m really sorry that you’ve felt like that,’ Jenkin responded.
Crying harder, Yinrun apologised, to which Jenkin assured her: ‘It’s ok.’
Following the emotionally draining debate, Yinrun later tried to chat to Jenkin at his birthday party.
Apologising to him, she gave him a hug, but he declined to discuss things further, telling her: ‘I love you.’

Yinrun’s heartbreaking revelation came shortly after she put herself forward to face eviction this Friday, despite never even receiving a single nomination from her fellow housemates.
‘I want to be up because I am not part of this show,’ she said, breaking hearts everywhere.
‘I take this as an opportunity to me.’
‘Yinrun, I want to say, you’re not minor in the house,’ Olivia told her. ‘No one forgets about you ever. That’s horrible to hear you say and I hope that I’ve never made you feel that way because I love having you in the house.’
Reacting to the news that it was, in fact, Jenkin making Yinrun feel isolated and unnoticed, Big Brother viewers let out their rage.
‘I need Jenkin to pay for his cruel behaviour towards our Yinrun’, one person tweeted ahead of eviction night.
‘JENKIN WAS THE ONE IGNORING YINRUN?? GET HIM OUT RN’, blasted another.
‘Yinrun crying because of Jenkin omg evict him’, another agreed.
Praising Yinrun, another said: ‘Yinrun overcoming her nomination fears and telling Jenkin how it is. We are proud’.
Will Jenkin get the comeuppance many viewers are demanding? Time will tell…
Meanwhile, the rest of the housemates will take part in face-to-face nominations on Tuesday.
Yep, for the first time this series, housemates will not nominate in the comfort of the Diary Room.

Instead, they’ll be forced to spill the tea while locking eyes with one another, in the brutal twist we all love.
As the social experiment comes to an end, those who swerve eviction this week will earn themselves that sought-after place in the final week.
Big Brother continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
