The housemates used their Get Out of Jail card to release Luke this afternoon (4.10pm).
The group decided to free the politics student - who was jailed earlier today for discussing nominations - after Big Brother banned him from nominating (1.57pm) because he was imprisoned.
Rebecca went to the Diary Room and asked Big Brother if her friend would be able to vote if the group used the special token.
Thrilled to hear he would she raced to get it and hand it back to Big Brother, hardly giving the rest of the housemates time to disagree.
After Mohamed and Rex said the group should vote on whether the card was used, Rebecca begrudgingly said: "Does everyone vote that we give this to them so Luke can nominate?"
After a chaotic show of hands, it was agreed it would be used.
Luke didn't know he would be banned from casting his vote until Big Brother failed to call him to the Diary Room.
After Lisa had named those she wanted to put up for eviction Big Brother called Mario to the Diary Room.
Luke was devastated when he realised his name had been skipped.
Luke said: "The first person ever banned in the house from nominating. It's serious stuff that."
However, the group failed to sympathise with mild-mannered Rachel saying: "You're getting all you deserve, Luke."
