Lisa Appleton has become the 11th contestant to be evicted from Big Brother 9 after being voted out by the British public.

Lisa, 40, earned 52.6 per cent of the public vote to be narrowly booted out of the house over Sara Foladi, who also faced eviction.

Having heard the news, Lisa exclaimed: "Woo!" before hugging Australian contestant Sara.

After Mikey Hughes remarked: "You're leaving on a high, Lisa", the sales rep replied: "I'm high as a kite, you know that guys so don't worry about me!"

She won £25,000 earlier this week after she and Sara offset the pain of being nominated for eviction by sharing a £50,000 prize.

Housemates on the Channel 4 reality show were forced to announce their nominations in front of each other as Big Brother announced an eviction 'face-off'.

But after being picked to face the public vote, Sara and Lisa had a smile on their face after winning £50,000 in a game of jeopardy entitled The Prisoner's Dilemma.

The pair were handed the chance to share the money or take the jackpot individually, but were permitted to lie during the game in order to win the money.

After discussing their decision, Sara said: "I will choose to share. Think the world of you Lisa, you know that."

Lisa replied: "I wouldn't want to do anything different. You have been my best buddy on the show."

Having both told the truth, they each revealed a block labelled "share" and were awarded £25,000 each.

Lisa also accepted a marriage proposal this week from her boyfriend Mario Marconi, with whom she entered the house.

The romantic moment took place last weekend as Mario, who left Lisa behind in the house after being evicted six weeks ago, proposed using placards.
