John James and Steve are in the Bathroom. They both say they think Sam is strange.

Sam has been called to the Diary Room to be given his first secret task by Big Brother. He must convince the other housemates that the clothes Big Brother has given him are in fact his own. He must wear all four outfits for at least 20 minutes and the other housemates must not realise he is on a secret task.

Sam enters the bedroom and tells the other housemates Big Brother will give him his suitcase soon.


Sam has been given his suitcase full of ridiculous clothes and is changing into his first outfit, a pink velour tracksuit.

Some of the housemates are in the Garden. JJ mentions that Sam has only three outfits. “It’s all dress up, he’s loopy”, he says. John James says that his clothes consist of some jogging pants, five hats and some giraffe underwear.

Some of the housemates are in the Bathroom. Sam tells them his tracksuit is just an everyday outfit.

Back in the Garden Dave and John James say that if Big Brother could give Sam tasks to wind up the rest of the house he would be very good at it.

In the Bedroom, Steve asks Jo if she is ok as she seems upset. “You want some of this?” jokes Sam pointing at his body. “You cannot be straight”, says Steve.

Sam enters the Garden and says he thought he would match Corin’s outfit today. He then gives Josie a lap dance.


Rachel, Josie and Steve are in the Kitchen. Sam is changing into his second outfit of silver trousers, cut off t-shirt, deeley boppers, finished off with a decorative scarf.

Sam enters the Garden in his third outfit saying that it emphasises his ‘package’. He then does some ballet moves for the housemates.

In the Kitchen, Corin is challenged to eat a hot chilli. She does, saying it’s red hot and getting hotter. Dave says he can’t believe she did that.


Some of the housemates are in the Garden. Josie tells Sam she can see his reflection in the mirror. Sam then thrusts himself at Josie. JJ says that he ‘tea bagged’ her.

Sam enters the Garden and informs the other housemates of his reprimand. “It was only a little bullock”, says Josie.

Housemates are gathered in the Living Room, waiting for their messages from home.

The housemates watch Josie’s video from home and then Dave’s.


Housemates are still watching messages from. So far, Josie, Dave, Jo, Andrew, Corin, JJ Sam and Mario have seen their messages.

Steve adds that he thought it would make his time easier in the house but instead it has made it harder for him. He is glad to see his family are happy. “It makes you realise what you’ve got”, he says.


Josie, John James and JJ are in the Bathroom. Josie has dipped Sam’s toothbrush in a foul-tasting fingernail solution prescribed to stop her sucking her thumb. Sam walks in and begins to brush his teeth. He realises what they’ve done, “Don’t start that game because you know you’re gonna lose”, he tells Josie.
