Nine of the contestants on Big Brother 9 are facing eviction after several broke rules discussing nominations.

Dale Howard and Luke Marsden will face the public vote on Friday having been nominated by their fellow housemates.

But seven other housemates - Stuart Pilkington, Darnell Swallow, Rex Newmark, Mohamed Mohamed, Rachel Rice, Maysoon Shaladi and Kathreya Kasisopa - also face eviction after breaking the rules regarding public discussion of nominations.

Only Sara Foladi, Mikey Hughes and Lisa Appleton are exempt from the public vote on the Channel 4 reality show this week.

Stuart has lost his title as head of house and as Darnell, Rex and Mohamed, among others, had also used a code to discuss nominations, they will also face the public vote on Friday August 1st.

Dale and Luke were the only housemates to be put up for eviction in the normal manner, with six of their housemates naming Dale and five nominating Luke.

Mikey said he believed Dale would "stab everyone in the back for the 100k [prize]" having seen his audition tape while Rex said Luke's personality had "died" since the eviction of Rebecca Shiner.
