Yesterday housemates were set an endurance task – ‘Standing on the shoulders of prizes’ – in which Adam came out on top.
The task started with a secret mission for Adam, who in the diary room had to allocate prizes to each of the housemates.
In the garden, housemates discovered nine labelled boxes representing presents for each of them. The prizes up for grabs were on a board, but housemates were unaware which prize was in their box.
The housemate that manages to stand on their present the longest will get to win the prize inside. When housemates can stand it no longer, they must say their name followed by ‘is no longer present’. They can then open their present to see what they could have won.
Giving up first was Rebecca, who lost the chance to win £1000, and was shortly followed by Sara who could have won a mountain bike.
Claiming that “competitive behaviour is embarrassing”, Scott was third to quit, and in doing so lost out of flying lessons. Ashleigh was also glad to have given up after finding out her prize was a toilet brush. Conor was fifth to stop.
With just four housemates remaining, at 2.44am this morning, Luke S finally giving up, and was followed by Luke A 6 minutes later. Deana quit to finish second at 2.55am, meaning after almost 13 hours, Adam had won the task and a 50″ LED TV.

A competitive Luke S was clearly rattled after his loss when waking up today, claiming he let Adam win. He said: “I could buy any one of those prizes outside of the House.
“I just wanted to stay on longer than Luke A but I was starving. I just kept looking around and thinking I’m standing with three people I don’t like. I still think there was more to that task. It could be immunity but I think he knew what was in his box.”

Are you pleased Adam won the task?
