Hallie Clarke has been evicted from 'Big Brother'.
The 18-year-old youth worker had been taking part in the ITV2 reality show but became the third housemate to be evicted on Friday (27.10.23) evening and looked visibly shocked as her name was called but soon composed herself and blew kisses to the crowd upon her exit before hugging her mum.
Speaking to hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best immediately after her elimination, she said: "I loved it! Honestly that was amazing, my mum is the one person I wanted to see first...but the feeling that I got from the crowd, I loved it. Thank you so much. My mouth is dry. I honestly have no idea [why I'm out], everything happens for a reason. "
In the build-up to her exit, Hallie had been nominated by Jordan, Matty, Chanelle, and Jenkin for eviction and faced a public vote along with Trish and Dylan.
Hallie admitted that she was "surprised" by some of those who nominated her but insisted that there is "no bad blood" between herself and her former housemates.
She said: "Chanelle surprised me, but I understand where they're coming from. At the end of the day, it's a game and what's got to be done has got to be done so I hold no bad blood and I love them all."
Early on in the series, Hallie revealed to her costars that she is a transgender woman and was on the verge of tears as she recalled how everyone had accepted her.
She said: "Honestly, it was the first night, I wanted to see how the housemates were and going to sleep on the first night I felt as if they would respect me. I woke up the next morning I was s****** myself, but once I'd said I was a trans woman, it was like a weight lifted off my chest.
"I appreciate everyone in that house. The love I felt from all of them, I really appreciated it. It was important to me to be loud and proud and show trans visibility."
Just before the end of the interview, Hallie revealed that she would like customer support worker Yinrun Huang, 25, to walk away with the £100,000 prize so she can return to her native China.
She said: "The goal is to fly Yinrun back to China to see her parents, so I want Yinrun to win."
Hallie's exit comes after model Zak Srakaew, 28, who was eliminated in week two of the series, and makeup artist Farida Khalifa, 50, who was the first of the 16 housemates to face eviction.
