PICTURES! Big Brother 2017 tears as loved ones enter... and it all kicks off

There are no shortage of tears on Big Brother 2017 tonight as a new task sees friends and family join the house.

In this week’s shopping task if the housemates can keep the large lightbulb in the living area powered up they will win a luxury shopping task. However it won’t be easy; housemates will be tempted by contact from friends & family and if they give in to their temptations, then the large lightbulb will lose power.

Housemates will be able to boost the power to the light bulb if they can light up the dance floor in the garden, whenever music is played into the house

As part of the shopping task, Chanelle is faced with her temptation; her nana is waiting to speak to her. Chanelle accepts her temptation and the brightness of the light bulb decrease loses powers.

A teary Chanelle asks her nana; “I miss everyone…how’s Jake? Has he dumped me? Does he still want to me with me?” Her nana replies; “He’s been lovely and loves you to death!” She tells Chanelle; “I don’t like that peeing in the hot tub!”

Raph is next to be tempted by a video from his sister, which he accepts.

Tom is next to be tempted by a phone call from his girlfriend. He also accepts the temptation.

Hannah is next to be tempted by a visit from her sister Mary, she accepts. Mary tells her; “Mum is so proud! Listen to Deborah…tell her let Kieran into her life and let her guard down! He’s a lovely dude!”

A tearful Hannah tells Deborah what her sister Mary said; “She says mum loves us…she says Kieran is a good guy and mum is happy with it!”

Hannah continues and tells Kieran; “My mum says she’s accepted you and ready for the big Nigerian wedding!”

Music is played into the house. Housemates rush to the dance floor in the garden and dance away

Simone is next to be tempted by a letter from her children; she accepts the temptation. She reads tearfully; “Have an amazing time, miss you and love you more than other! Good luck!” She states she misses her children ‘so much’ and feels that she ‘must be doing well’ if her kids say so.

Meanwhile, there are more tears later on in the day when it all kicks off between Sue and Chanelle.

Big Brother airs tonight at 10PM on Channel 5.
