The former model-turned-television presenter was clearly upset when she learned that Team USA had collectively chosen her to face the public vote.
After winning the latest shopping task, the Americans secured immunity from eviction and had to decide as a group which members of Team UK would be nominated this week.
Gail was nominated alongside Chris Ellison, Bobby Davro, and Chloe-Jasmine and Stevi Ritchie, who count as one housemate.
Team USA had to reveal their choices for nomination face-to-face, and Scottish star Gail was visibly emotional as Austin Armacost read her name.
It came just after Austin shaved his head in solidarity with Gail, who had spoken about feeling insecure and unattractive at times because of her alopecia, which caused her hair to fall out.
We'll see the reaction to nominations on tonight's episode, so we will find out whether Gail was emotional at the thought of going home and seeing her daughter, or sad at being chosen by her housemates.
