Big Brother 2012 – Day 26 – Deana & Luke S argue, potato cook-off task

Recap of day 26 in the Big Brother house; highlights show: Sunday 1 July 2012.


It’s a tense morning in the Big Brother house following an eventful evening where Becky felt insulted and intimidated by Shievonne.

Sara, Shievonne and Ashleigh are discussing the situation.

Shievonne comments: ‘She (Becky) can turn it around on me all she wants, she can think what she wants about me…I don’t understand why she’s upset when no-one’s accused her of shit.’

Becky goes to the Diary Room to give her version of events.

She tells Big Brother: ‘I feel alright today, I was stressed last night, I’ll be reet…Sara really annoyed me last night and still annoying me today, she changes off drink, they all change off drink, it’s horrible.’

Becky continues: ‘Part of me dislikes Shievonne, she can just be really, really intimidating…I’m literally going to stand my ground. I shouldn’t care, I’m not here to make friends.’


Deana is in the Diary Room and Big Brother ask her how she fells to have been saved in the public vote: ‘It’s nice that that people picked up the phone to save me, a nice feeling, it’s given me a bit of a confidence boost.’

Sara asks Becky for a word and tells her she was a bit hurt by Becky’s comment that Arron only liked her because they’re in the house but that she’s sorry if things turned round and Becky felt got at.

An emotional Becky tells her: ‘What’s happened, happened…last night everything got put on me…I cant be arsed any more, I just give up.’


In the garden, Luke S has planned a surprise picnic for in Ashleigh. Conor jokes to Arron about how much Luke S has changed: ‘It makes me sick…he’s making a picnic with rose petals made out of tissue paper.’


Ashleigh and Luke S are enjoying their picnic and planning their future, and Conor, tongue-in-cheek, says that he feels he’s lost his friend to Ashleigh.

Meanwhile, Arron is talking to Becky and Shievonne about Sara and says: ‘I think she’s attractive but I just want to be friends.’

He doesn’t think they’re compatible, and nor would they be even if they weren’t in the house. He adds that there might be a girl on the outside worlds he has his eye on.

Arron tells the pair: ‘I like to be in control of my own destiny and relationships, I don’t like cupids, I prefer to do things my way.’


In the garden, Ashleigh and Becky are talking about Arron.

Becky comments: ‘I’ve never known a boy say the cringiest stuff.’

Ashleigh adds: ‘He’s not right is he? I think he’s got a bit of a screw lose to be honest.’

Luke S notes that: ‘He’s terrible with women.’

They beckon Conor over to ask him his opinion but have to change the subject when the man himself, Arron, joins them.


Ashleigh is in the Diary Room talking about Luke S and his lovely picnic. Big Brother asks her how much she likes him on a scale of one-to-ten.

She gives him a 10.

In the living area, Arron and Conor are talking about Sara.

Arron says: ‘She’s not attracted to me at all.’

He adds: ‘She said she’d get with a guy (in the house) but she wouldn’t have sex with him if she didn’t see a future…why get with him then?’

Conor says: ‘She seems far too much high maintenance.’


Ashleigh and Shievonne are chatting about Arron and Sara.

Shievonne says: ‘She likes him, he likes her…he acts like he doesn’t like her.’

Elsewhere, Luke A says he wants to build up his physique and asks Luke S for some tips.

Lauren is called to the Diary Room and given today’s task.

Big Brother tells her that as her family are big stuff in the world of Jersey Royal potato farming that she must pick the two best chefs in the house and they will have a potato-based cook-off which she will judge the winner of.

She and the winner will then have an al fresco meal that evening as their prize.

Lauren declares that is ‘awesome’ and selects the two Lukes as the chefs. They each get to have a sous chef, and Luke A picks Adam, and Luke S chooses Conor.

In the bedroom, Caroline points out to Ashleigh that if Lauren picks Luke S as the winner then they’ll be going on a ‘hot date’.

A clearly not happy Ashleigh says: ‘Are you f****** joking me?’ And when Becky asks her what’s going on, she replies: ‘My boyfriend’s supposedly going on a hot date with Lauren.’

Luke S checks with Ashleigh that she doesn’t mind him doing the challenge, to which she responds: ‘I don’t care.’


The knives are out, the oven is on and the chefs have one hour to deliver their dish.

Lauren looks on and notes: ‘Smells so good guys.’

Times up and the chefs have done their bit, now it’s down to Lauren to judge the winning dish.

Luke A has cooked potato gnocchi ‘a la schlong’, which is asparagus and pancetta.

Luke S made ‘Silk Reds’ which were flavoured potato chips with steak and sauce.

Lauren loves both dishes but announces: ‘The gnocchi was amazing and I think it’s just tipped it for him.’

So Luke A will be having dinner with Lauren that evening.


Luke A and Lauren are enjoying their three-course al fresco meal with Luke S as their waiter.

In the living room, Caroline, Conor and Sara are amusing themselves with a bit of pass the ball.

Caroline tries to liven it up a bit and when Sara drops the bell, Caroline dares her to kiss Arron.

Sara goes over to Arron and gives him a peck on the cheek.

Arron asks what that was for and guesses it was for a dare. He says: ‘Right, so she takes bribes just to give me a peck on the cheek.’

Back outside, Luke A tells Lauren that Luke S has been nicer to him recently but that it’s ‘too little, too late.’


In the bedroom, Deana, Conor, Arron and Luke S are discussing romantic gestures and buying your partner flowers.

Arron doesn’t understand why you would want them: ‘They’ll just die.’

Deana says she’d rather just have the money.

Believing her to be quite money-orientated, Luke S asks Deana if she’d rather have an amazing wedding or the money instead, and Deana replies she’d prefer the money.

Tensions begin to rise as Luke S insinuates that for Deana, it’s all about the money.

Deana defends herself saying that they have got her wrong and that she’s worked hard since she was 16 and has never had money given to her and isn’t a money grabber.’


In the garden Deana is telling Scott, Adam, Luke A and Lauren about her heated debate with Luke S.

She tells them that what she really wants to say to Luke S is: ‘Look what you’re doing for money, having a fake relationship on national TV, how low can you get…that’s not having any morals.’

She adds: ‘That’s why he cleans so much cos his head’s messed up.’

Becky is in the bedroom and overhears parts of the conversation and tells Ashleigh that Deana is saying something about her and Luke S.

Scott goes into the bedroom but when quizzed by Ashleigh says; ‘I’m not just going to repeat the conversation.’

However, they glean enough information from what they heard to understand that Deana was questioning the reality of Luke S and Ashleigh’s relationship.


Deana is working out in garden, and Ashleigh and Luke S are in the bathroom discussing her.

Ashleigh tells Luke S that Deana was saying something about the ‘lowest of the low’ and was commenting on their relationship.

An unhappy Luke S says: ‘Unlucky Deana, you’ve just started a war.’

He goes to find Deana and asks her if she’s been questioning their relationship.

Deana tells him firmly: ‘I think it’s fake. I’m not the only one who thinks it but I’ve got the guts to say it…you’re so sly and calculating.’


Luke A, Adam and Lauren are in the smoking area, and as Deana jogs in the background, Luke A says: ‘Be careful with that one (Deana).’

Adam adds: ‘I don’t give her information.’

Later on, Caroline says to Deana about Ashleigh and Luke S: ‘I do think they like each other.’

Deana tells her: ‘I’m entitled to my opinion.’

Caroline tries to offer up some advice: ‘How ambitious you are and how successful you’ve been could be misinterpreted as you’re here to make money…if I was you, just don’t have more confrontations.’

Lauren is in the Diary Room talking about the situation and comments about Deana: ‘She’s not doing herself any favours, bless her.’
