Mario Marconi became the fourth housemate to be evicted from the 'Big Brother' house last night. The self-professed "Italian Stallion" - who has never been to Italy in his life - left girlfriend Lisa with the other remaining 13 contestants after receiving 77% of the public vote.
The hulking man-mountain - who was the first to enter the house as part of the show's first ever couple - buried his head in his hands when host Davina McCall broke the news.
He said: "It is quite a shock, isn't it? But let's enjoy it."
Fellow nominee Rebecca looked shocked at the result while other housemates were quick to hug the moaning muscleman and say their goodbyes.
Later, the 43-year-old from Widnes - real name Shaun Astbury - told Davina he hasn't really got a fan club, despite previously claiming he had hundreds of fans around the world
He also revealed he would "probably" marry Lisa when she leaves the house and added to the camera "where are my divorce papers?"
He added: "The public shows were just pretend. It was very hard. And in the end it was very hard.
