Sylvester Stallone's mother Jackie tonight became the first celebrity to be evicted from the Big Brother house.

The Hollywood astrologer, who claims to be 71, smiled when the public vote was announced.

Racing pundit John McCririck, who had also been up for eviction, held his head in his hands when he learned he was to stay in the house.

Jackie Stallone became the ninth celebrity in the Big Brother house when she made a surprise entrance on Monday night.

After the public vote was announced, Jackie told John: "It serves you right. You should stay. I am so happy. Now how do I get out of here?"
