3.32pm Shopping task

To pass this week’s shopping task, Hung Drawn and Quoted, Housemates must play a traditional picture guessing game (using a giant pad in the garden).

Sunshine has been given a phrase used to describe the housemates in the day’s newspapers.

Housemates must correctly guess the phrase from Sunshine’s drawings, she is not allowed to gesture or write numbers or words.

For each drawing the housemates get right they will receive “100 on to their weekly shopping budget.

But if the housemates fail to guess any of the quotes the house will receive an economy shopping delivery and have no hot water or access to electrical appliances.

The housemates have four phrases to guess. They guess “squatter” and “wannabes” correctly; however they fail to guess “Big Boobed babe” and “Hunky Trio”.

Big Brother reveals that they guessed two phrases correctly and that they have received £200 for their shopping budget. David says “I could spend that on myself”.

Mario joins the girls. Big Brother reveals that the storeroom is open for housemates to collect the shopping list. Mario tells them “I am just a bit worried about the mole situation. I’m not sitting in the mole hole crying about it. I am not crying moley tears. I don’t feel like a proper housemate”.

Mario is left alone in the bathroom. The tree of temptation sets Mario a second impossible mission, which involves Mario throwing all the bread and potatoes (out of their packets) into the pool and then framing one of the other housemates for it.
