The first eviction on Celebrity Big Brother is almost upon us after the ITV show kicked off on Monday (March 4).

13 famous faces entered the house including Strictly Come Dancing’s Nikita Kuzmin and Coronation Street’s Colson Smith.

But it’s the Princess of Wales’s uncle Gary Goldsmith and reality TV star Lauren Simon who are the first housemates at risk of being eliminated by the public.

Businessman Gary had already been put up for eviction by former X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne as part of her “secret mission” earlier in the week.

During Thursday’s episode (March 7), it was revealed that The Real Housewives Of Cheshire favourite Lauren received the most nominations from her fellow housemates after they had to pick two people each.

If you’re wondering how you can vote ahead of the first Celebrity Big Brother eviction, this is all you need to know, including a new change.

Big Brother hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best recently took to the Celebrity Big Brother X, formerly Twitter, account to announce fans will now vote for their favourites instead of the person they’d like to evict.
