Recap of day 56 in the Big Brother house; highlights show Tuesday 31 July 2012.
It’s nominations day again however, this week, in a surprising twist, it won’t be housemates nominating it will be their friends and families instead.
“It looks like it is going to be an amazing day” Luke A exclaims. Adam tells his fellow housemates that he won’t be sunbathing, while he enjoys the sight of Sara getting ready. Luke S is tidying up in the house whilst Sara, Becky, Scott and Conor sunbath.
In the living area, Luke A has Luke S on his mind again. “Luke S looked hot last night with all that stuff on his face,” he quips. “You think he looked hot?” questions Adam and Luke A tells him that he is being sarcastic. Luke A reminds Deana and Adam that she called Luke S a robot “to his face” during the task. Deana claims that Luke S’ kiss tattoo is his on/off switch and they all laugh. “I can kind of understand that tattoo on you’re a**e but not on your bicep. Cheese,” Luke A remarks. Ashleigh is in the garden wearing her bikini. Deana comments: “Urgh look she has got her boobs out.” Luke A remarks: “This sounds so wrong and it makes me cringe. But I would rather kiss him than her.” Deana continues to slate Ashleigh branding her actions “disgusting.”
In the garden, Ashleigh speculates why housemates have not yet nominated. “Maybe we’re doing something different,” Becky ponders. Sara tells Ashleigh and Becky that all housemates may be facing the public vote. In the bedroom Deana prays that she, Luke A and Adam will be okay.
Meanwhile in the garden, Becky has noticed that there is a lot more cleaning going on in the house. Scott agrees adding: “Yes, there is a lot of talking today.” Scott and Becky are insinuating that fellow housemates are behaving out of character because of the impending nominations. “Do you think people change their minds?” Becky asks Scott.
Housemates are gathered on the sofas. Big Brother announces their friends and families will be nominating on their behalf. “I knew it!” Luke A exclaims. Most of the housemates are silent. Housemates cheers as Sara’s mum appears on the TV screen. She nominates Becky and Scott who she brands as “a rather forgettable character.” Adam rants: “Our f**king friends and family were right here and we didn’t even know it!” Adam’s mum is next and nominates Ashleigh and Becky; Deana’s friend nominates Conor and Ashleigh; Conor’s girlfriend chooses Deana and Luke A.
Housemate’s friends and family have been nominating for the last 24 minutes. So far, Ashleigh and Becky have 2 nominations each; Conor, Luke A, Scott and Deana all have one nomination. Scott’s sister is next into the diary room and nominates Luke A and Deana; Becky’s sister nominates Luke A and Deana; Luke S’ mum nominates Luke A and Adam, Ashleigh’s dad nominates Luke A and Adam and finally, Luke A’s wife nominates Becky and Ashleigh. The housemates nominated for eviction are Ashleigh, Deana, Luke A and Becky and therefore, these four housemates will face the public vote.
It’s been 3-minutes since this week’s nominations ended. Becky is in the bedroom fuming about Luke A’s “disgusting” comments that her sister revealed. “It’s so rude to say that about me, she’s got more respect than her BMI, oh my God!” Luke A is in the garden and can hear Becky’s rant. “She’s loving this,” he tells Adam and Deana and explains that he made his comment about Becky without even thinking. In the bedroom, Ashleigh tells housemates: “The f**king public are seeing them for what they are, I’m so f**king happy!” “The best one was ‘soldiers’,” grins Conor laughing as he relays what his girlfriend and Becky’s sister revealed about Deana catchphrase.
In the garden Deana mentions how silly it is that housemates took the “soldiers” comments literally, “It’s a f**king joke,” laughs Luke A. Becky is heard shouting from the bedroom, “To say, that, to a girl is absolutely disgusting, how dare he say that!” “Is that over the top or is it just me,” questions Luke A in the garden. He tells Deana and Adam that he would like to apologies to Becky, “But not when she’s like that,” he adds and shakes his head. “Do you think I should just so one,” he asks and Adam says no. “They think I’ve got a game plan,” he worries. Deana reassures him and says that housemates’ friends and families are bound to stick up for their own, “This was bound to happen,” she adds. Deana and Luke A head inside; Becky is nearby and Luke A tries to apologies. “I do NOT, want to hear you out Luke!” she shouts and marches into the bedroom. “I’ve heard him out one too many times!” she yells.
Luke A has come to the diary room to talk to Big Brother. “I feel awful and ashamed of myself,” he starts and says that he regretted the BMI comment the moment he said it. “I tend to speak before I think,” he scolds. Some of the housemates are in the bedroom talking about Luke A. Luke S tells Becky: “What your sister said isn’t her personal opinion, it’s what he said,” he states. Becky reminds them that her sister also mentioned that Luke A had slated them all by referring to them as “dirty, arrogant, cheating, evil a**eholes.” In the diary room Luke A sits with his head in his hands and begins to cry. “I feel sick, all through my life I’ve tried to be a good person, now everyone thinks I’m an a**ehole, I’m not an a**ehole. I can’t physically do anything right in this house, I’ve tried to be civil to them, now look at it,” he moans.
Ashleigh is in the bedroom and tells Luke S that she is excited about Friday. “The house is divided,” he declares. After 28 minutes in the diary room Luke A returns to the house. Deana realises he is upset and gives him a long hug. “Everyone said nasty things, not just you, you said it for a reason,” she reassures him. But Luke A tells her that his comment wasn’t meant to be “malicious.” “It was a whole sentence said as a reaction to how she treated you,” she reminds him.
Sara is baffled by the comments her mum made about Scott during nominations. “I hope she discussed it with other people, I can understand Becky, but Scott, I have no idea,” she muses. Scott has come to the diary room and is also baffled by Sara’s mum’s comments. “If I had enemies that’s fine,” and says that the friends and families would always defend their own. He begins to cry. Luke S and Ashleigh are sharing a bath; they talk about Scott. “He needs to understand if people don’t like him,” Luke S whines and Ashleigh tells him that Scott is “trying to please everyone.” Luke S continues: “He’s got one nomination and he’s taken it really personally.” In the diary room Scott tells Big Brother that he doesn’t care about being nominated, just the comment that Sara’s mum made about him being a “rapscallion.” “Even though I love Sara, that’s not very nice, and they said I was a very unforgettable character,” he ponders. Scott then thinks about how Becky was described as someone who “spreads poison around, I just don’t like it.”
Sara is still confused and has come to the diary room. She tells Big Brother that she understands why her mum nominated Becky “but not Scott, why would she say rapscallion?” Deana is in the garden rallying her cause. Luke A listens to her from the hot tub: “We’re on the good side, I don’t care if I say soldiers, at times this house has felt like a war, I don’t regret saying it!” she rants. In the kitchen, Becky jokes to Conor and Luke S: “I’m princess BMI” she declares before dropping down and attempts some press ups. In the garden Deana tells housemates, “We have been true to ourselves,” she adopts a dance stance and rants Ashleigh style: “I’m going to Ibiza, I’m gonna go to f**kin’ Ibiza, I’m gonna get me tits out,” she stops suddenly then asks: “Is that entertaining?” Luke A is laughing adding, “Yeah, what you just did there was!”
Sara is boosting Luke A’s ego as he sits in the hot tub. She tells him that he is good-looking adding: “I’ll be even happier when you get a d**k,” and housemates laugh. Ashleigh has had a change of heart and tells housemates that Scott “stuck up” for Luke A during the shopping fiasco. She mentions that Luke A goaded her by asking if she was going to get Luke S to stick up for her. “It’s awful how a 31 year old man can say something about a 19 year old girl,” Becky exclaims. Ashleigh says that when she leaves the house “I’ll grab the mic from Brian and shout that Luke A makes me physically sick!”
Some of the housemates are cowering in the bedroom in fear of a moth and Scott tries to catch it. Luke A, Deana and Adam are at the sofas discussing their day. Adam mentions that seeing their loved ones has make people miss them more. Luke A says that he now has to deal with the situation he has caused. “Everyday we analyse ourselves,” Deana muses and Luke A tells them not too, “We must all have a personality to be in here,” he exclaims. “The boring people always stay to the end,” Deana adds.
Ashleigh has lost her sense of direction and quizzes Conor on Ireland’s location. In the living area, Luke A tells Adam and Deana: “Despite all the s**t, I’ve still enjoyed it.” Becky goes into the diary room. “It’s been a bit of a weird day,” she starts. She mentions the nominations and tells Big Brother “I can’t believe my sisters been in here, I love her soooo much,” she beams. She giggles and cries at the same time and admits that Luke A’s comment about her BMI was hurtful, “It upsets me that my family were upset.” She continues: “I can’t bring myself to talk to him, there’s still the divide between soldiers, it will be me and Ashleigh that goes,” she presumes.
On the sofa, Luke A ponders: “Maybe my game plan thing is just my morals.” Becky runs through the living area to the bedroom and Adam and Luke A watch her silently. She tells housemates about her visit to the diary to the diary room and has tears streaming down her cheeks. Conor hugs her and she giggles: “Oooh, the fit boy wants to hug me,” and reveals that she “burst into tears,” in the diary room. “Right private, get to bed it’s going to be a ling day tomorrow,” mocks Luke S. “I couldn’t give a s**t, I just wanna go home,” Becky whines.
