  • Blair McDonough now plays Stuart Parker on Neighbours

  • Gretel appeared on Rove Live!

  • The Insider starts tonight.

  • Nominations The HMs were asked to allocate points to the two people they liked the most in the house, As well as 2 points for the people they liked the least. At the end of the process, the votes were tallied and the HMs who had the least positive votes were nominated for eviction. At least two HMs from each house were nominated. This new process is a ploy to stop HMs being strategic. It's hard to lie about who you really like, so the HMs will nominate the ones they truly don't like without even realising. The next twist is that this week nominees weren't even told the results. They will be left in the lurch until 7.30pm next Sunday night, when those in danger of being booted will be informed and given only half an hour to pack their bags. One hosemate will be evicted from each house.

  • Nominations are Saxon, Leah, Irena, Belinda and Ben.

  • First night of Big Brother: Up Late.

  • The first episode of uncut airs tonight.

  • Irena's legacy item: butterfly hairclip
