You've fallen for John's plan, BB fans!
For the obnoxious betting expert planned his own demise from
start to finish, and became a double record breaker in the
When John entered the Big Brother House on Tuesday night,
he did-so holding an 'EVICT ME PLEASE' sign. The 70-year-old
held-up this sign whenever he was in the Diary Room, knowing
it would be shown on the highlights show.
That arguably broke the fundamental rules of the game, but

John's eviction saw another BBUK record being broken too,
in that he became the first male housemate to be evicted at
