'Big Brother' housemates tackle 'rubbish' task

Big Brother contestants today faced a "rubbish" task to try and gain money for their weekly shopping budget.

'Big Brother' contestants today 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 piñata full of rubbish to pull out a token representing money for the budget.

During the last two days housemates have taken part in two game shows to try and raise funds.

Sunshine and Ben picked up £50 (€59.80) yesterday after taking part in a quiz where they had to guess what pensioners were talking about. Dave, Corin and Josie won £150 (€179.40) for the weekly shopping budget in another game.

To watch the task, viewers can tune into the highlights show which will be aired on Channel 4 tomorrow night at 9.35pm.

Host Davina McCall will also announce which nominated housemate, Rachael, Sunshine or Shabby, will be the first to be evicted from the final series of the reality television show.
