Today will see another nominations twist as friends and family members of the nine remainingwill nominate on their behalf.
This twist was previously used by Channel 5 in 2011, and attracted criticism from fans over Big Brother’s disregard for its own ‘no contact with the ouside world’ rule.
It will also be the latest in a run of consecutive nomination twists after Turf Wars in week 6, face-to-face nominations in week 7, plus last week when just one nomination would see a housemate automatically put up for eviction.
Today, housemates will watch one friend or family member nominate two others on their behalf while giving their reasons why.
Is this a good idea, or should Big Brother have left the nominations process alone this week?
