Yes, they're evicted. Sent packing before even entering the Secret Story house.
The launch show has just started and it has been announced there will be 20 housemates!
And three secrets are known so far: We are a fake couple (obviously Robin/Laura/Benoit secret), I was born a hermaphrodite, I escaped from a sect.Pictures from the official Secret Story site.
Ahmed (35 years old) and Julie (24 years old) are the first housemates to enter.
Anne-Krystel is the next housemate. She is apparently a star in Canada.
Two more secrets are revealed - I am a vampire
and I am afraid of the supernatural.
Stephanie and Coralie are the next housemates to enter. They are 21 years old and are best friends.
Senna is the former boyfriend of both Stephanie and Coralie and is the next to enter.
Amélie, 24 years old, is the next housemate. Also, I think Ahmed, Julie and Anne-Krystel are going to have to choose to evict a housemate, although I'm not sure because the translations are not clear.
Charlotte, 19, is the next housemate. Ahmed, Julie and Anne-Krystel have to choose either Amélie or Charlotte to stay, and they decide that Charlotte should stay, so Amélie exits the house.
Two more secrets are revealed - I am the most handsome man in France and I am a female Don Juan.
Thomas, 17 years old, is the next housemate in (sorry the updates are taking so long, I'm also doing the BBUK live blog as I'm doing this)
Shine, 25, enters the house.
Alexandre, 25, is next to enter.
Another secret is revealed, although it is rather vague - I am a miracle.
Marion, 20, is our next Secret Story housemate. She claims to have "survived death". She was in a kindergaten hostage situation in 1993.
Again the three housemates who entered first - Ahmed, Julie and Anne-Krystel have to decide who will stay out of Maxime, Chrismaëlle or Anthony.
Maxime is 22 years old and is a "real show off".
Chrismaëlle, 21 is a gogo dancer in Belgium.
Anthony is 23 and likes to win. The three choose Anthony to stay and Maxime and Chrismaëlle leave the holding room and the house.
Two new secrets - I have a perfect pitch, and I am the grandson of the creator of the Smurfs.
John is a 21 year old father.
Bastien, 23, also enters. His secret is that he is psychic. He claims he will be able to discover the others' secrets very quickly.
And now, Laura, Robin and Benoit find out who will enter the house as the fake couple.The public have been voting on the internet for which fake couple they want to see enter. Benoit and Robin recieved the most votes and entered the house as a fake couple. Laura misses out and is evicted from the Apartment. Robin and Benoit received 80,300 votes (47%). Laura and Robin recieved 66,971 votes, while Laura and Benedict, received 21,861 votes. Robin and Benoit have one week to make the other housemates believe they are in love.
And Chrismaelle, Maxime and Amelie, who the first three to enter voted to eliminate were in fact moved to a room (called the "Anteroom") where they can spy on the housemates. They have one week to figure out who chose to eliminate them. The first three to enter - Julie, Ahmed and Anne-Krystel are aware that the three are watching and will try and keep their identities as the ones who voted to evict them a secret.
