Frankie Dettori MBE has been evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother House. That's one finish line he won't be crossing.
A household name and a sporting hero to many racing fans, Frankie was the first in line when it came to the housemates' entrance, joining forces with Rylan to consign others to the basement. When it came to the crunch, he and the X Factor star chose comfort and stuck Speidi in the lower quarters.
Frankie's stint in luxury wasn't to last too long. Soon the big CBB basement swap was in the air and, when the vote was cast by all his upstairs HMs, Frankie lost out and was sent to roost with his old buddy Razor down in the underground. A sporting character, Frankie helped to get the generator back in working order, putting in all his effort and getting the electricity back up and running. Then it was all change again as the basement noms sacrifice event went down with Frankie in the frame. He selflessly put himself forward for guaranteed nomination, in the process freeing himself and the other basement boys from their confined space.
He really came into his own when Big Brother appointed him Dictator and ruled the House with an iron rod. Power certainly went to his head but he was so entertaining that we didn't mind. Unfortunately he was so distracted showing off his tank to Lacey and Claire, the pair duped him, tapped his phone and eventually overthrew the regime with a little help from Rylan.
One of Frankie's most endearing traits was his team-thinking and solidarity. When Speidi upset the entire House in the Diletters task, Frankie was among the most vocal in his disapproval. Admittedly that might've been because he'd been forced to ride Razor like a horse for the entire day...
Frankie was well-loved by the other contestants and could cook up a real storm, tell a cracking anecdote and always had a smile on his face.
Happy birthday @Emma_Willis!

Can you believe CBB finished a week ago? We never got to use Rylan's 'sad face' eviction pic so here it is now! http://t.co/ZDHFk7sm
