Tomasz Wania was the seventh housemate to be evicted from the Big Brother house on Friday.
The Polish cleaner said his goodbyes after receiving the most votes to evict against Akeem and Cian, in a show which saw many fans fume over the mystery surrounding Lewis’ removal from the house earlier in the day.
Lewis was ejected from the house on Friday after using ‘unacceptable language,’ but viewers only saw the moment he was removed rather than the incident in question.

Speaking to host Emma Willis with his signature ‘shade fan’ in hand, Tomasz gushed about how much he had enjoyed his Big Brother experience, adding that he thinks it has helped boost his confidence.
He said: ‘I just had trouble believing in myself sometimes, so i wanted to squeeze every week out of it as much as I could because it was the experience of a lifetime.
‘It’s OK because I’m on the show I’m living my dream and I’m just really happy.
‘It was not seen to be a game player, obviously I was expecting that I wasn’t doing myself any favours but I obviously couldn’t do it any other way.’

And after seeing Cameron’s devastation at losing two of his closest friends in one day – and on his birthday no less – Tomasz had nothing but kind words to say about the now 19-year-old video blogger.
He said: ‘I always felt very protective over him I didn’t know why and obviously there was him coming out and I clocked him. I was very confused at first, but he’s an 18 year old guy and we had a strong bond.
‘It was just amazing because I’ve nearly been a witness to anyone coming out other than myself.’

Cheeky! And the gender neutral cleaner couldn’t shy away from talking about his hilarious friendship with Welsh hunk Akeem, who he constantly called ‘Daddy’
Tomasz also touched on his hilarious friendship with Welsh hunk Akeem, who he constantly called ‘Daddy’ throughout the series.
He said: ‘It took me three weeks for me to understand him. I didn’t think about any other person in the house that way, just about him, I could just see him in his eyes.’
And in a move that would surprise few, Tomasz made the final decision to donate his remaining 288 Big Coins to Cameron.

Tomasz’ departure came as a devastating blow for many Big Brother fans, as they were already furious at Lewis’ removal from the house earlier that day.
At the top of the show Emma explained that he had been ejected for using ‘unacceptable language,’ with a clip showing him being called to the Diary Room to be told the news.
Asked whether there was anything he’d like to say, the barman said: ‘My bad language and misuse of certain words has exploded in my face.
‘I never meant to upset anyone, hurt anyone’s feelings or disrespect any kind of background, sexuality, race, gender or religion. So yeah, I’m sorry.’

Many viewers were furious that the actual language in question was not revealed, taking to Twitter to ask in unison what Lewis had said.
One tweeted: ‘So I’m guessing they’re not gonna tell us what Lewis said,’ while another added: ‘Have I missed part of tonight’s show where we see what Lewis said that got him kicked out of the house?’
A spokesperson for the Channel 5 show said the fan-favourite housemate exited the Elstree house with immediate effect on Friday, but the statement did reveal why at the time.
Despite numerous clashes with his fellow housemates Lewis had been a fan favourite thanks to his close friendship with Cameron, and despite surviving several evictions was the bookies favourite to win.
The statement – which was also posted to the show’s Twitter – said: ‘Lewis has been removed from the Big Brother House for unacceptable language that contravenes the rules. Lewis has left the house with immediate effect.’
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Big Brother for further comment.

It comes just over a week before the last ever series was due to end, with the final scheduled for Monday 5th November.
Lewis had remained a controversial figure throughout his time in the Big Brother house, coming to blows with many housemates including Lewis G and Hussain.
On Thursday fans saw the hunk once again come to blows with Akeem, as they were trapped in a cell as part of the prison shopping task.

But he also formed a close friendship with 18-year-old Cameron, helping the video blogger in coming to terms with his sexuality, and supporting him in his decision to come out to the rest of the house.
Before his departure Lewis had remained the bookies favourite to win, despite surviving eviction twice and being one of the most nominated housemates.
Fans were always quick to support him when he spoke about his struggles with anxiety, especially at one point when he suffered a panic attack during the Big Brother airlines shopping task.
It is now unclear whether this will affect the number of housemates who make it through to the final, as it seems too late to send in someone to replace Lewis.
Big Brother: The Live Eviction airs on Friday 26th October at 10pm on Channel 5.
