A former boxer who had his ear chewed off by Mike Tyson has been knocked out of the Big Brother House. 

Evander Holyfield, 51, was the first person to be made to leave the house at Elstree Studios in Borehamwood after he failed to ingratiate himself with his other housemates. 

He and Luisa Zissman, who were handcuffed together at the start, did badly in the public vote, leaving it up to Lee Ryan and Casey Batchelor to choose between them. 

Ms Zissman was saved by the former Blue singer, who is a  friend of hers in the outside world. 

Despite being reprimanded by Channel Five for claiming being gay "ain't normal", Mr Holyfield seemed shocked to have gone so early. 

He told host Emma Willis: "I thought I'd be loved here, I thought I'd get more votes, but I didn't."
