Celebrity Big Brother 2024 has confirmed the two nominees for the first live eviction on Friday.

Thursday's (March 7) episode saw the housemates nominate for the first time, with tensions running high as they contemplated who they'd put on the block.

The Real Housewives of Cheshire star Lauren Simon landed the most nominations — six in total — and now will face the public vote later this week.

Lauren was nominated by Bradley Riches, Colson Smith, Gary Goldsmith, Marisha Wallace, Nikita Kuzmin and Zeze Millz, with several mentioning she wasn't pulling her weight around the house. Colson also pointed out that Lauren has been calling him the wrong name.

Lauren will face eviction alongside Gary, who received a killer nomination from special celebrity lodger Sharon Osbourne earlier this week.

While Lauren received the most nominations in total, other housemates were also picked out ahead of the live eviction.

Louis Walsh singled out Heartstopper's Bradley Riches, saying he preferred the older housemates because of "their history and their stories".

"He is talented, and he's a nice guy, but he hasn't lived his life as much as the others," Louis told Big Brother in the Diary Room.

Fern Britton nominated Love Island star Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, complaining that the reality star has repeatedly pressured her to join the others in the hot tub.

"She's a couple of times suggested that I could fit into one of her bikinis and get into the hot tub. There's no way I'm gonna do that, but she's asked me two or three times," Fern argued.

Likewise, Ekin-Su accused Fern of being "not genuine" because she wasn't really listening during the conversations.

Will it be Lauren or Gary as the first to leave the Celebrity Big Brother house? Find out on Friday night…
