Somali asylum-seeker Ahmed is out on his ear after being booted out of the Big Brother house.
The 44-year-old was the bookies' favourite to go, with odds of 20-1 making him the most unpopular housemate in the show's history.
He received a whopping 56 per cent of eviction votes.
Ahmed welcomed the news, punching the air and shouting "Yes!"
"It's been emotional," Stuart told Ahmed upon hearing the verdict.
His fellow housemates queued up to say their goodbyes, as he was given half an hour to leave the reality TV house.
Stuart and three other housemates - Dan, Nadia and Shell -promised to strip off for the cameras if they were spared.
Crowds waiting outside the BB house booed on hearing Ahmed's name.
Dan, Nadia, Victor, Shell and Stuart were also up for eviction after they completed their Boot Camp challenge earlier this week.
Michelle and Jason, as "sergeants" in the task, earned immunity from eviction.
Ahmed survived eviction last week, when newcomer Becki was voted out by the public.
He told BB in the diary room at that time he thought he was "number one" to leave.
Ahmed was a bit of a moaner and prone to fits of temper. Earlier this week he griped: "Everybody hates me ... it's a fact."
