She lost out in the public vote to Coleen Nolan, Lorenzo Borghese, Julian Clary and Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino.
Julian and Mike were the first to be told they were safe, after which the remaining three potential evictees were given 20 seconds each to explain why they should stay in the house.
The former EastEnders actress said that she was providing "a bit of a laugh" and "trying to say it as it is".
Coleen stated that she was "having a great time" and, having heard boos, asked for a "chance to redeem [herself]".
Lorenzo said: "Apparently I have a lot of angry people out there that don't like me and... like Coleen... I'd like to try to find out why and make sure everybody likes me better."
