THE new series of Celebrity Big Brother 2018 has seen its first housemate get evicted from the show after India Willoughby was voted off.
The BBC newsreader was up against Love Island star Jonny Mitchell but failed to win the vote which meant she had to leave the compound. Here's all you need to know
Celebrity Big Brother 2018 is back… but how how can you save your favourites?
Who was evicted from Celebrity Big Brother 2018?
The first eviction took place on Friday, January 12 when India Willoughby lost out to Jonny Mitchell in a head-to-head.
Surprised about the applause she received as she left the house, India told Emma Willis: “Considering I was first out I was expecting a hail of bullets.”
However she was clearly upset about having to leave.
India lamented: “I had so much more to offer, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles. It is like a hurdles race, there are obstacles in the house and I hit a really big one on the gender question."
She added: “My confrontations have been Bambi-esque compared to previous years.”
Much of the time in the house was defined by how scared she was of Courtney Act and drag queen, and despite becoming friends with Shane Janek, India says she’ll never get over her fear.
Her time in the house has been both controversial and eyebrow raising.
The transgender star revealed in detail about how she picked her vagina, spoke about being turned on by Daleks, and shown off her boobs on a number of occasions.
However her comments have left viewers fuming, especially when she went as far to compare drag queens to the racist Black and White Minstrel shows.
Channel 5 India Willoughby was the first to be evicted from Celebrity Big Brother
Was anyone immune from the first eviction?
Jess Impiazzi and Amanda Barrie earned themselves immunity from the first Celebrity Big Brother eviction.
The Ex on the Beach babe and the Coronation Street legend were put to the test within moments of entering the house, having to repair a switchboard before their rivals.
They were then tasked with choosing another housemate to receive immunity, opting for Maggie Oliver.
Malika Haqq was next to win immunity after a ace-throwing competition on Day 2.
Shane J was the final housemate to be granted immunity after going head-to-head with John Barnes.
C5 Emma Willis and Rylan Clark-Neal are back as hosts for the main show and its spin-off
How can you vote to save your favourites from the line-up?
If your favourite celebrity housemate is up for eviction, you can vote to save them and keep them in the house.
You'll be able to vote by phone – each housemate will be allocated an ‘09’ premium rate service telephone number to call from a landline, and a 7 digit Mobile Short Dial Code number to call from a mobile.
The numbers for each housemate facing a public vote will be given out during the programme and will be displayed on the Big Brother website.
It'll cost 50p plus your standard network rate to vote, and there is no limit on the number of times you can vote.
You can call the premium rate numbers from your mobile, but it'll cost you more. However, you can't call a Mobile Short Dial Code from a landline.

What were the odds before the eviction happened?
Love Island star Jonny Mitchell and newsreader India Willoughby were both nominated for the first eviction.
SunBets had India Willoughby as the favourite to be booted out of the Celebrity Big Brother house.
India was at 1/6, while Jonny sat at 7/2.
This means that SunBets accurately predicted the public vote.
Ru Paul's Drag Race star Courtney Act remains the firm favourite to win the series with odds of 11/10.
