Big Brother has changed the rule regarding the discussion of nominations by banning it with immediate effect.
Up until now and in a break from tradition, housemates this series have been permitted to freely discuss nominations. However, Big Brother has this evening reverted the rule, and has promised to punish those who break it severely.
After gathering the housemates on the sofas, he announced: “You are no longer permitted to discuss your nominations with each other.
“This includes any discussion that could be interpreted as an attempt to influence nominations, discussing or hinting at who you have or will nominate, predicting or guessing who may be nominated, discussing reasons you may use to nominate someone, asking others to nominate you, and writing down with materials at your disposal names, initials or symbols.
“If housemates break the rules, there will be servere repercussions.”
Following the news, Caroline quipped: “What will we talk about now?”
Benedict and Lauren, who both face eviction on Friday, criticised the timing of the announcement and thought Big Brother should have waited until after the current public vote.
Earlier this week, Luke A expressed his anger at the freedom to discuss nominations and claimed the wrong people were up for eviction because of it.
