The Big Brother 2017 housemates faced their phobias in a brand new task this week.

Yesterday morning saw this week's brand new shopping task kick off.


Big Brother gathered the housemates to the living area to announce: "Housemates, for this week's shopping task all yo need to do is survive."

Over the next few days, housemates will be called to the Diary Room at various points and they just need to endure whatever they find inside.

One survival challenge saw Deborah, Andrew, Charlotte & Tom's nerves put to the test, as they faced their phobias.

To pass their part of the task, they had to endure what happened in the room without pressing their buzzer to get out.

"Andrew, Deborah, Charlotte and Tom, welcome to the survival room," Big Brother began to tell the group, "In front of you you each have a buzzer.


"To pass this part of the task, all you need to do is not press your buzzer and endure what happens in the room."

Andrew reacted: "I don't get it."

"No one touch me please," Deborah begged.

The lights then went out as creepy crawlies fell from the ceiling onto the four piece, inciting terrifying screams.

Earlier in the day, first up in the survival room were Ellie and Sam.

Big Brother told the pair: "Ellie and Sam, to survive this part of the task all you need to do is endure the application of a glowing and vibrant spray tan."


But Ellie's new look didn't leave Hannah happy. She later told Big Brother in the Diary Room: "Ellie looks like an actual Smurf an I'm scared of Smurfs. It's proper scary. I keep forgetting she's actually human."


Meanwhile, another part of the task saw some housemates get to watch Bit On The Side from the task room.

Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5.
