Big Brother 2016: Hughie Maughan angry at Alex Cannon for taking prize money

Big Brother 2016

With the Big Brother 2016 prize money diminishing, Hughie Maughan isn't happy.

The total now stands at £70,000 after Jason Burrill took £20k and Alex Cannon and Jackson Blyton each pocketed £5k in another twist.

Hughie wasn't happy with Alex's decision, accusing him of being hypocritical following the previous prize money task the day before.

"When we were in [the task room, the £20,000] was 100% going to come off [the prize fund] and you said you'd never take money out of someone's pocket," Hughie claimed.

Alex explained there was a difference between £20,000 and £5,000: "I said I'd never take £20,000 out of someone's pocket."

"It's the same principle," Hughie told him.

"It's not," insisted Alex.

Hughie ranted: "You've completely and utterly contradicted yourself from last night. It's rubbish and right now you're trying to justify yourself."

"If it was £20k, I wouldn't take it," insisted Alex.

As Ryan defended him against Hughie, Alex went on to say he chose to take the money for the other luxuries it provided as part of a new 'rich' and 'poor' task.

"I'm having a s**t time here... I want to enjoy myself, I might leave here in another day," said Alex. "It wasn't even about the 5 grand, just because I'm not moping around doesn't mean I'm not struggling.

"You don't know what I'm missing out on the outside, you haven't got a f**king clue, lad."

Big Brother continues tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
