Wildcard contestant Rebecca has won the public vote and has gained immediate housemate status, replacing evicted housemate Victoria.
This year the public have been able to choose one of three wildcard housemates to enter the Big Brother house, in an attempt to revive the show, creating it fresh and innovative. The winner of this is, wildcard, Rebecca.
The voting was open to all Twitter users, from launch night until last night, with fans being able to vote completely free. It was Big Brother’s Bit On The Side presenter Jamie East who was left to choose three wildcard housemates to compete against each other.
During the first live eviction show, Big Brother revealed that Rebecca had received the most votes. She entered the house screaming through the living room, shouting: “Get in there you ba***rds”.
She jumped straight in to the pool and started to talk to Caroline about the rest of the housemates.

Caroline said: “I can’t believe that on your first night you jumped in to the pool”.
Bubbly larger than life Rebecca replied with: “Isn’t that what you do?”
The 19-year-old is currently in her first year of drama college and has previously been an extra on Shameless.
In the Big Brother House she says she’d like to be a leader “I’d get them all ship shaped, I’m a bit of bossy boots, I’m so strong willed, but don’t take things too seriously”.
