A contestant was unexpectedly kicked off Rise and Fall last night
and live on Freeview channel 276
A contestant was kicked off without warning last night (6 April) from the Channel 4 game show Rise and Fall, after an 'altercation'. PR researcher Joas was removed from the house after it appeared he threw water at a fellow participant during a heated exchange.
The gameshow, inspired by the inequities of mediaeval feudal society, and modern capitalism, sees contestants split into two groups - Rulers and Grafters. The Rulers stay in a penthouse suite and live in luxury during the show, their only responsibility is to keep the Grafters in line and vote for fellow Rulers to be eliminated and for Grafters to rise to the level of Rulers.
Each episode the Grafters, who live in a dingy basement, are given tasks where they have the opportunity to add money to the prize pot. In most episodes, the Rulers will choose two Grafters to rise to the Penthouse, and will also vote for a Ruler to be eliminated from the show.
In the final episode, a winner will be chosen, but only those who are Rulers by the end of the episode will be in with a shot of taking home the cash prize. The series is hosted by Radio 1’s Greg James, who gleaned advice on his role from The Traitors’ presenter Claudia Winkleman.
Rise and Fall has found its stride and the season finale is getting ever closer - this is how to watch the final episode, who has been eliminated so far, and which contestants are still in with a chance of collecting the £100,000 prize money:

Who has been eliminated on Rise and Fall so far?
Joas was unexpectedly kicked off in last night's episode (April 6) or Rise and Fall. At the end of the programme, Eddy, from Devon, was tasked with selecting one more contestant to join him as a Ruler alongside Sophie. However, after the pair announced who they would be taking with them, an altercation broke out. Joas slammed Sophie as a 'liar' and threw a glass of water over her. Soon after, host Greg James announced: "Joas has now been removed from the basement and will not be returning to the show." Fans immediately took to Twitter to react to what happened.
Ali was the first to leave the show - he walked from the series in episode one after struggling to cope with the Grafters’ living conditions. In his first work shift he was given minor electric shocks, and he left after the shift ended. Ramona became the first Ruler to be voted out of the game when she was eliminated in episode two - however she since made a shock return so is still in the competition. Prince (Ruler) was eliminated in episode 4, Rishika (Ruler) was sent packing in episode 6, Rachel (Ruler) got the boot in episode 7, followed by Marina (Ruler) in episode 8.
Joanna, who had spent her entire time on the show in the basement, left in episode 9 after suffering a trapped nerve in her arm. Cheryl was another Ruler to be eliminated, and was kicked out in episode 10.
