Eviction night at Big Brother house

Three nervous housemates have been anticipating the first live eviction show of Big Brother.

Either Rachael, Sunshine or Shabby will become the first housemate to get the boot from the last series of the reality television show.

Medical student Sunshine and Shabby, a 24-year-old squatter, were both nominated by their fellow housemates to face the public vote.

Welsh housemate Dave was also nominated but in a twist he won a task which enabled him to put Beyonce lookalike Rachael up for eviction instead of himself.

On Thursday contestants faced a "rubbish" task to try and gain money for their weekly shopping budget.

Housemates dove into dustbins, had food waste tipped over their heads and had to swing at "binyatas" filled with refuse.

Three teams took part in the Totally Rubbish Quiz. For the first round, one competitor had to stand in a bin and scrummage for a hidden answer to a question read out by Big Brother.

In the second round, contestants had to pour the contents of a bin filled with food waste over the head of their unsuspecting team-mate. The unfortunate housemate then had to guess what sort of food was poured on them.

For the final round, game players had to swing at a pinata full of rubbish to pull out a token representing money for the budget.

Unfortunately they did not raise any cash for the food fund. The red team, Iffy and John James, could not burst a "binyata" even though the Australian had five attempts to swing at it.
