Big Brother 2014: Flaw in BBUK app discovered?

An apparent flaw in the Official Big Brother 2014 app has been revealed.

The mobile app has been available to download since the beginning of the series, with polls from the app being used to influence goings on in the house.

Last week the app's poll saw Ashleigh Coyle voted the Power Housemate while this weekend us viewers will get to save one housemate from nominations (and therefore eviction).

But a supposed problem with the app means that users can exploit the poll and vote multiple times for their favourite housemate just by uninstalling and reinstalling.

Meanwhile, viewers have once again hit out at Channel 5 for still not providing a version of the app for Android phones.

The BB app is only available to iOS devices running iOS7, despite Android having more market share here in the UK.

As of January 2014, Android mobile phones account for more than half of all sold (55.7%) while fewer than a third (30.6%) run iOS. Just over 10% use the Windows Phone operating system, meaning the app is not available to more than two thirds of all mobile phone users.

Multiple people have complained, with one tweeting us: "Wish @bbuk would be fair and put the app on Android or at least the website."

The results of the latest poll will be revealed to the house before nominations on Sunday.
