PICTURES! Tears as Big Brother 2013 housemates get letters from home

There were tears aplenty in the Big Brother 2013 house last night.

But it wasn't because of more arguments or new rows, rather the annual letters from home sob fest.

Yesterday, the housemates were told to get arty as Big Brother provided each housemate with an easel, canvas and palette of paint and are told that they had to create an abstract picture which will represent their time in the house so far.

Big Brother believed that the housemate’s paintings were creative and imaginative enough, so they went on to receive letters from their families (real ones, this time) yesterday evening.

Charlie kicked off proceedings, who asked Hazel to read out her letter from mum and former housemate Jackie. There were tears from Charlie as Hazel read Jackie's note, telling her to "kick arse" with Dexter and Callum and to "up her game".

Dexter read out Gina's letter from her mum, who praised her upfront attitude in the house. The tears from Gina continued as she got a second letter from her boyfriend, which even left Charlie crying.

Callum and Sam read out each other's letters, both of which caused more sobbing, with both of the messages from home noting the pair's relationship and bromance with one another.

Finally, Dexter had his letter read out by Gina, as his mum told him to stop being so "cringey" and to just relax!
