`Lisa's played her part in the house'.

Byline: Gemma Williams

KEEP your fingers crossed and get voting.

Tonight is the night when we find out if Penarth's Lisa Jeynes will be the eighth person to leave the Big Brother House.

After spicing up the series and providing plenty of fodder for the tabloids, the 35-year-old former model could face eviction from the Channel 4 series tonight.

But if she does leave, so too will many of the show's viewers, according to Lisa's boyfriend, Marcus Jones. ``She was put in the house to spice things up -and she has done, which is what people want to see,'' said Marcus, 25, who lives in Pentyrch and has been seeing Lisa for nearly six months.

``If she leaves, it will go back to being the boring house it was before. But whatever happens, I'm proud of her.''

Marcus will be in the Big Brother studios for the eviction tonight with Lisa's mum Sheila Jeynes and 12 members of Lisa's family and friends.

But widow Sheila, who lives with Lisa in Penarth, says she does not expect her daughter to be voted out.

``From what was a week of hell last week, people seem to have changed their mind about Lisa and are really backing her,'' said Sheila.

``The viewers have seen the other housemates being really rude andnasty to her and they like her fighting back. I'm glad she confronted the housemates about it. I've been shouting at the telly all week, willing her to stand up for herself.''

And Marcus says Lisa will be strong enough to cope with the tabloid attention whenever she is evicted, although he doubts she will be expecting so many lies and exaggerations to have been printed in the tabloids.

He said: ``As soon as I meet her, I'll warn her about some of the things that have been printed, just so she's prepared.''

Good luck Lisa.''
