Last night’s show saw glamour model Sallie Axl evicted from the Big Brother house, while fake housemate Michael Dylan also bowed out from the series after his true identity was revealed to his fellow housemates.
Dubbed the ‘People’s Puppet’ Michael is a professional actor who had been secretly working for the viewers performing a series of special tasks designed to stir things up in the house.
