Before friend Sunshine became the third person to be evicted from the house, the 30-year-old writer and broadcaster stepped out from behind the doors to an overwhelming cheer.
Speaking into a microphone set up at the top of the stairs, he quipped: "Welcome to my part of the show, all 90 seconds of it in fact. It’s a pleasure to be booed by you."
He then told a joke about the 'oxymoron' of mobile homes which do not in fact move and got a laugh from comparing himself to 'Iron Lady' Margaret Thatcher.
He said: "Ladies and gentlemen I thought I was going last week, I was so sure, I was ready to pack my bags and go, but you guys kept me in here.
"I said, 'I'm still here', and someone said I was like Mrs Thatcher after the Falklands War, I said that's just the hair."
His 90 seconds up, he thanked the cheering crowd and praised the "fantastic" people in the house, particularly Sunshine, who received boos at the very mention of her name.
As he returned to the house, Davina praised Ben's routine, describing his performance as "absolutely brilliant" when she was sure he would fall apart.
She then confirmed that Ben had passed his stand-up challenge, meaning that housemates had won the overall task and will receive a luxury shopping budget next week.
