Big Brother 2013: Gina Rio feels like a “power ranger” in her task costume and Charlie Travers’ Tweet treat causes upset in the house

Charlie, Hazel and Gina.


This evening, viewers will see the first day of this week’s shopping task in which the housemates must become super heroes and save as much shopping as they can which is being tortured at the hands of Big Brother.

It seems Gina has more than just he shopping on her mind as the simply LURVES her costume!

Speaking to Big Brother in the Diary Room, Gina says: “I think it is so cool. I feel like a power ranger… I love it! It really fits well and it’s figure hugging. Yeah!”

Unfortunately Gina, I can’t see bright blue lycra power ranger costumes catching on… but each to their own, I suppose.

Meanwhile, as part of the shopping task, housemates have the opportunity to win golden tickets which can be exchanged for a treat.

Dexter Koh and Charlie Travers managed to win a golden ticket whilst defusing the bomb in the garden yesterday and their treat was to receive some Tweets from fans.


However, as this is Big Brother, not everything is as plain sailing as it should be. One of the tweets to Charlie mentioned her calling Gina sly and Gina ain’t happy.

In the Diary Room, Charlie tells Big Brother: “I don’t know exactly why that was said but I have a feeling why. I have never said that Gina was sly. I feel nervous to talk to Gina because she said if I say one more thing that is taken the wrong way where I don’t think before I speak she doesn’t want to talk to me ever again. So the pressure, naturally I am more nervous about slipping up in front of Gina…I am least comfortable and least myself around her in here.”

Big Brother continues this evening at 10pm on Channel 5/HD. Make sure to tune into Bit on the Side right after as Emma will be unveiling an almighty twist!
