The contestants are told of the huge twist in nominations in this, the seventh week of Big Brother. For three days they struggled on with their Boot Camp Task, with the best intentions to pass the task for the good of the group. Their leaders Michelle and Jason encouraged them along the way. As Big Brother reveals to them all they have passed the task, all our more elated than ever. All, this is, but Jason and Michelle who know all too well what is about to hit them. As Michelle sat with her head in her hands, the group realise something is not right. They don't wait too long to find out, Big Brother then plays a clip of the Diary Room in which Michelle and Jason are told of the twist in nominations. And so, with that, all six 'privates' realise their fate.
Ahmed immediately accuses Michelle of being selfish throughout the week, and declares she only got annoyed with him for not taking part to save her own skin. Michelle is furious and loses her temper with the ex-asylum seaker once more, labelling him an 'Ignorant Little Man' and throws a flip-flop at him. Nadia and Shell eventually calm her down, but the row had already run it's course. Later, when Daniel says he is perfectly happy with the result, Ahmed causes another row when he says Daniel is 'pretending' and hiding his true feelings on the matter. Another heated discussion breaks out and the housemates end the day more divided than ever.
The housemates continue their weekly task, in which the house has been transformed into the Big Brother Boot Camp. The housemates are becoming increasingly annoyed with Ahmed's refusal to take part in many of the tasks, which is putting their success at risk. Michelle confronts him and things soon develop into a full blown argument when she questions why he even applied to be on the show. Later, Daniel tells Big Brother, in the Diary Room, how he feels Ahmed is acting like a "t*at" and how he feels he is faking his "illness" to get out of taking part in the task. Another argument occurs when Nadia accuses Jason of picking on her because she smokes, and says he is being unfair by not allowing the smokers their usual qouta of cigarettes as part of the task. But things soon turn to other matters, and the two quickly argue about many events of previous weeks in the house. Later, Daniel tries to explain to Jason how difficult it can be for smokers who are forced to stop. But he ends the conversation abruptly when Jason speaks over him and dismisses all of his remarks.moreless
Highlights from Eviction Day in the Big Brother house. Becki and Ahmed await news of their fate in the house. Becki says to both the group and Big Brother in the Diary Room she doesn't want to leave the house.Ahmed appears to be much more relaxed about the whole thing, saying either way he will be happy.moreless
An aeroplane, sponsored by tabloid newspaper The Sun, flies over the house, and the housemates see it's banner that reads 'Only Becki Nominated Michelle!'. The contestants are confused, and Shell thinks the national newspaper have got their wires crossed and made a mistake. By coincidence, Michelle is in the Diary Room as the time of the plane's flying across the house and so only hears about what it says when she leaves the diary room. Becki continues to lie about it, and says she is totally innocent and confused by the message. Michelle tells her not to worry about it and insists she doesn't mind. Later in the day, the contestants make their nominations, all that is, but Jason and Victor. The rest of the house decided that Ahmed and new girl Becki should face the chop.moreless
With no nominations due to the delayed eviction, their is a positive and cheerful mood in the house. Big Brother sets the contestants a new challenge. They must all make a clay cast of a body part. Once all the clay cast's from each contestant have been made, they must all be applied to a wire frame to form the "perfect housemate". A ironic conversation takes a turn for the bizzarre and uncomfortable when Michelle asks transsexual Nadia if she had "it" put in a pickle jar when it was "cut off". The conversation was planned by Marco and Michelle as a joke, but they do not realise how close they are to the truth about Nadia's secret past. The perfect housemate model, which was originally a female, becomes A Sexual when the boys in the house mould a penis onto it.moreless
The contestants are told of Emma's departure from the house. After some silence, out of respect for their friend, the contestants pretty much end in agreement that it might be for the best. Outside the house, Davina interviews the ejected housemate, discussing her time in the house and her plans for the future. Discussion on the Big Brawl is limited, but Emma is clearly sad to be evicted from the house because of it. It's also clear that if she is out, so should Victor be.moreless
On the night June 16th 2004, Day 20 of the fifth season of Big Brother UK, an argument broke out on a scale never before witnessed in the reality show. This episode, especially extended to one hour, airs the brawl itself and the events of Day 20 that lead to such a colossal disaster for the housemate's relationships. During the day, tempers within the house were already reaching boiling point. Irritated by his constant cold showers (which Emma and Michelle set up), Victor rants inside the Diary Room, but getting no response takes to the roof to protest. Vanessa makes a fatal mistake when she tells Dan and Shell how she doesn't respect Michelle and that her opinions do not matter, unaware that the 'evictee' she is talking about is watching and listening to it all.
By the time the two 'evicted' contestants return at around 10.45pm, the atmosphere in the house is at it's most explosive yet. Annoyed by the girls' return, Victor and Jason retreat to the garden to lick their wounds. "It's time to stir things right up" remarks Victor, little does he know that is exactly what will happen, but on a scale he can't even imagine. Lifted by the return of their buddies, Marco and Emma are more hyperactive than ever before, and the old house divide between the "the lipstick bitches" and "the adults" returns, more prominant than ever. The night's terrible arguments soon begin, for a more detailed review of these events be sure to click the link to 'recap' below. At around 4.00am, when things have finally calmed down, several of the housemates are starting to drift in and out of sleep in the living area. As the final shot, the camera zooms in to a writing on the wall [which was put there by Kitten in the first week] which reads "No More War".
In this special episode, the bedsit duo return to the house. Informed by Big Brother, the other contestants believe they are just enjoying a special fancy dress party. Special it will certainly be. When contacted by Big Brother on their bedsit telephone, the girls rush about getting prepared for the return. When they do arrive back in the house, something special is planned. With their housemates locked safely away in the bedroom, sent their by Big Brother, the two girls hide under the huge dinner table in the living area. Once inside, they each put their heads through holes in the table which lead to the inside of a platter dish. Unaware of the trick, Nadia removes the lid to the platter containing Emma and gets the shock of her life, as do the other contestants. The two they thought were gone are back, and they know more than anyone can imagine.
Clips are also shown of the highlights from the past 24 hours in the house. They include the housemates discovering who will be facing eviction. Shell is upset by the result, and comforts Vanessa assuring her that she believed Ahmed and Nadia would be facing the chop. Jason and Victor are shocked, and wonder "what the hell" had happened. Nadia is upset when she feels that in her hour of need, the previous evening, nobody was there for her apart from Marco, and reveals how she had a strict limit of 10 cigarettes a day but that she broke and it resulted in her running out. Later that night, she and Vanessa spot a half smoken cigarette on the floor of the garden decking, under a chair, and reach under it so that she can enjoy a smoke.
The contestants make their all-important nominations for the second time. After receiving the most votes from their housemates, it's Vanessa and Daniel who will be facing the chop. Heavy smoker Nadia is worried to discover she has run out of cigarettes completely, and with no more in the house until the shopping arrives in almost a week, she will have to go cold turkey. Her predicament is a source of amusement for Jason and he jokes and mocks about her openly with all the housemates in the living area. His outburst is not just a frustration to Nadia, but also to Shell who takes it particularly badly. Later the same evening, unaware of Nadia's sex change the group discuss transsexual's in a frank and upfront manour. Nadia retreats to the bathroom and cries for nearly an hour. Meanwhile, Shell is having her own problems, and goes to the treatment room and throws some pillows around and generally loses his temper, thanks to Jasons outburst earlier. Vanessa comforts her.moreless
The bedsit duo, Emma and Michelle are set a task by Big Brother. They must pick one of their fellow housemates to receive cool showers. For all of the day, the housemate they pick will only ever receive cold water when they enter the shower. The girls pick Victor and watch with much delight as the London rude-boy gets increasingly stressed out as everyone else enjoys nice warm showers. In the evening, things get raunchy when after a week-long flirtation, Jason and Vanessa end up passionate kissing in the garden and bathroom. There fun soon ends when Marco's screams of excitement from witnessing the two's romance are heard by Jason.moreless
Big Brother gets evil, with the introduction of the bedsit. Before the pending eviction, Michelle and Marco discuss their other contestants and who they think is "playing a game". They agree that Dan and Vanessa are doing just this. When a mistake with Davina's link to the house means the housemates overhear the word 'Bedsit' on Friday night, the whole group go into a frenzy. Theories about what will happen are going left, right and centre, including Jason's idea that two people will be evicted and then one voted back into the house. When the voting news comes, the housemates think Emma and Michelle are evicted, when really they are going to the bedsit. Over Excited by being in the bedsit, Emma's breats constantly fall out of her top, to much amusement by the two girls. The following morning, they are set thier first task. They must decide which of the 9 housemates they left behind should have to take a cold shower. After they heard his conversation regarding voting off Nadia and Marco the previous evening, they choose Victor to take the cold shower. And when the girls watch live action from the house, Emma is distraught when Victor labels her 'racist' after some comments she made earlier in the first week. She rushes to the diary room, in floods of tears and struggling to catch her breath revealing he had "twisted" her words.moreless
In a first for the UK Edition of Big Brother, a "fake" eviction was staged. Davina guides the viewers around what will become, for the two "evicted" contestants, their new home for as long as Big Brother decides, the Bedsit. A 70's styled and by anyones standards, distinctly grotty, one-beded room with a tiny kitchen and bathroom and little else. However, most importantly, the room contains a large plasma screen and two sets of headphones. The room's feature will allow the two inhabitants of the room to view all the action from the house, live. After the highlights packege, Davina drops a bombshell on the unsuspecting housemates. Instead of one, she reveals to them two people will leave the house. Shocked and bemused by this new revelation, the group have precious few seconds to adjust before Davina announces the nominated contestants will have to wait an excruciating 30 minutes to learn of their fate.
When the news finally comes, the housemates are in shock. Their hot favourite to be ousted [Victor, Jason and Stuart among just about everyone else had tipped him to go at some point since his nomination was announced] is kept in the house by the public. Bubbly flirts Emma and Michelle were voted for by the public. When the 30 second countdown is done, they make their way down the entry corridor of the house. The front door does not open for them, and the remaining housemates are told to close the door to their home, and as soon as they do this a security guard ushers the two girls through a secret passage and into the Big Brother Bedsit. As the end credits roll, the girls franticly struggle to cope with their new, and very confusing, situation.
An hour long highlights programme, airing the most memorable moments from the first two days in the house. They include the contestants entering their new home and their first night, in which they found the 'surprise' of having less beds than people, meaning that some would have to share. Marco speaks frankly to Kitten and says he thinks that one of the females, well, isn't. Brief clips from the task are also shown and after he 'protest', Victor promptly chats in the diary room, revealing that he 'doesn't like that bitch [Kitten]'. Later the same evening, the contestants have a round of mud wrestling and there was mass debate as to if Nadia's breasts were natural or implants. Intelligent Conversation prevails, then.moreless
The 12 new contestants face their first task, live. And to their surprise, just two days into the show the housemates made their first votes. All of them voted for the person they wanted to see go without their suitcase for the duration of their stay in the house. Loose cannon Kitten, who refused to enter the house initially on launch night, continued her rebellious ways and refused to go to the diary room when asked to do so by Big Brother. The votes were counted, and it was Kitten who the housemates decided should go without her case. Back in the studio, Davina looked through her suitcase to see what she would be missing. In addition, she revealed the first eviction would happen on Day 8 of the show. She also announced some shocking plans for the eviction.moreless
