Last night Sam and Dave covered the house in grease-proof paper, rice, lentils, cornflakes and spaghetti.

Sam joins Mario and Corin in the Garden. “I knew you were the mole. What have you done to the Living Room?”, he asks Mario.


Sam is in the Living Room sweeping up the mess. He goes to get a large broom from the store room. “That will brush your granny off your granddad”, says Dave.

The rest of the housemates are in the Garden. “John if you get evicted tonight you better not do Attitude magazine before me”, says Mario. “If the photoshop my willy then I’ll do it”, says John James. The conversation moves on to Nuts magazine and who may have done it from the housemates that have left the house. They think that all the girls would have been offered. “Shabby might not have been offered”, says Sam.

JJ goes to the Bathroom where Josie is. “Everyone thinks’ they’re going to be superstars”, he says adding that when people leave they will go, get booed, have some photographs taken and then, “they might call you a w***** when you walk off”. “As long as it doesn’t involve taking my clothes off I would do pretty much anything to buys my brother’s a car”, says Josie.


Steve has come to the Diary Room to talk about tonight. “It’s a lot of pressure today. I’m hoping I can make it through”, he says.

The rest of the housemates are playing catch in the Garden with a washing up glove filled with water. Dave throws it to Sam where it explodes over him.

Mario and Corin move into the Bedroom. “I don’t like being cold and wet”, he says. “Maybe I’m no fun at all he adds. He goes on to say that his idea of fun is different and that he would prefer to paint all day. “I could paint my nails all day and not get bored”, says Corin.


Some of the housemates are in the Bedroom. “Have I got a proper moustache?” Josie asks John James. “Yeah”, he tells her. She asks when he noticed it. “Day three”, says John James.

JJ is in the Diary Room talking to Big Brother. “I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I’m probably leaving”, he says. “It really is an unpopularity contest”.

Back in the Bedroom Corin tells Josie that once you pluck a moustache you have to do it forever. JJ walks into the room and Josie shows him her moustache. “It’s whiskers”, says Josie. “It’s a beard”, JJ tells her.


John James and Josie are in the Bedroom. “If you don’t feel the same on the outside, I’d understand”, says Josie. “You think I’m going tonight don’t you?” John James asks. “Yeah, seriously, nice knowing you mate”, says Josie.

4.32pm John-James cries

Corin is in the Diary Room talking to Big Brother. “Everybody’s really scared and nervous”, she says. She compares the house to living in a mansion and that “tonight you have to move out the mansion and go back to a one bed flat”.

Most of the housemates are in the Living Room talking about John James. “The easiest thing he could have done is walk”, says Dave adding that he’s really proud of him for staying.

John James is in the Diary Room. He tells Big Brother that he doesn’t have any regrets. “You’ve got to be prepared to deal with the consequences”, he says. Big Brother asks him what he’s learnt from the house. “I’ve realised I struggle with annoying people”, he says.


Josie and John James are in the Bedroom. “If you find anything of mine can you return it?” he asks her. “I’m not 100% sure I will be here in the country”, he says, adding that it depends on what goes on out there. “I won’t hold my breath for anything”, says Josie. John James tells her he will still be hear for her when he comes out.

Josie sits at the carousel and notices a carving on the chair saying “John-James loves Josie”.

In the bathroom Andrew tells Mario he is “so pleased you made it as well”. Mario tells him that he is “over the moon you are here as well” but would have “loved it if Corin” was too.
