Big Brother 2017 housemates can now discuss nominations in new twist

The Big Brother ban on discussing nominations has been lifted this week, allowing for plotting and conspiring.

It follows a huge twist earlier tonight when four brand new housemates joined the house.


Andrew Cruickshanks, Simone Reed and Sue Evans were originally at the launch night where they faced a public vote to enter the house, but lost out to Tom who went on to become the People's Housemate.

The trio are joined by Sam Chaloner, who wasn't chosen to join the house by the current housemates last week in a twist.

The four piece entered the show tonight as 'second chance housemates' where it was revealed they can NOT win Big Brother or the main prize.

However they have stolen £15,000 from the prize fund which will be given to the 'second chance housemate' who lasts the longest in the house.

Meanwhile, the second chance housemates will be immune from the next nominations but will still nominate.

As for the rest of the housemates, they will need to win the right to nominate in a brand new task. Those that win the power to nominate will join the second chance housemates in 'The Void'.


Placed in the garden, housemates can use 'The Void' to plot and discuss nominations.

"They can do a little bit of conspiring," host Emma Willis teased on Bit On The Side.

In addition, viewers can get involved by voting in a free poll on the Channel 5 website here.

The latest twist follows tonight's eviction where all housemates face the vote.


It was Savannah O'Reilly who left after facing the vote against Chanelle McCleary, Charlotte Keys, Deborah Agboola, Ellie Young, Hannah Agboola, Isabelle Warburton, Joe Quaranta, Kieran Lee, Raphael Korine and Tom Barber.

Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5.
