Hira became the ninth housemate to be evicted from 'Big Brother' last night (07.08.09).

The fashion designer burst into tears when show host Davina Mccall announced she would be leaving the house after just three weeks.

After hugging and kissing the other contestants, Hira made her way out of the house sobbing and saying, "I love you guys".

As she stood in front of the door to the outside world, she exclaimed: "My god, they hate me!"

But the crowd soon proved Hira wrong, cheering loudly as soon as she emerged from the house.

All 10 remaining housemates were up for eviction this week, after Siavash refused to nominate his fellow contestants in the weekly eviction vote.

As a result, the voting process was tweaked slightly, with viewers invited to vote for the housemate they wanted to save, rather than the one they wanted to get rid of.

Hira secured just 5.65 per cent of the public vote, closely followed by Lisa.
