Tonight, thirteen brand new celebrity housemates moved into the Big Brother House, and two soap star heavyweights were set a secret mission to turn launch night into a 90 minute soap opera.
Big Brother called the first two housemates, Julie and Cheryl, into the diary room as soon as they both entered. Inside they found secret earpieces to be worn until further notice.
As soap Royalty, their mission tonight was to turn the Big Brother House into a 90-minute drama of soap opera proportions.
Throughout the night, every time they hear their respective theme tunes, Big Brother gave them an instruction or direction to follow via the earpiece.
If they successfully managed to complete the secret mission to Big Brother’s satisfaction, all Housemates would be rewarded later this evening with a special soap-themed party.
Amongst the directions given by Big Brother were for Cheryl to accuse Julie of having an affair with her ex-boyfriend and for Julie to throw a cup of water over Cheryl in a huge row!
The duo carried out all the instructions, with even some real tears, and managed to convince the other housemates that the drama was real.
As a result, the house was rewarded with a party this evening.
