The Celebrity Big Brother housemates got some furry companions today as the latest task continued.

For this week’s shopping challenge, housemates are undertaking a series of simple challenges while Big Brother throws a variety of distractions at them.

Today, Frankie, James and Katie had to estimate when 15 minutes had passed by pressing a button.

However in the meantime, Big Brother tried to distract their concentration with an array of animals including puppies, two alpacas and even a miniature horse dressed as a rainbow unicorn.

James declared: "I love dogs, I prefer them to human beings," and he got an extra special surprise after his very own pet pooch Daisy entered the garden.

Katie announced: "This is like the funniest day ever."

Meanwhile Frankie bonded with the poor horse who had a unicorn horn stuck to his head.

He said: "You keep shining bright like a Frankie, okay? Even when things get tough out there. Just because you're different from everyone else, do not worry about it because you are special and shiny and beautiful."

The other housemates watched on as the group tried to predict when the 15 minute time limit had passed.

In the next part of the shopping task, Lewis has to take messages on a phone while he was faced with distractions ranging from a video message for Katie from her husband to a visit from his very own mum.

For the final task of the day, Renee got a letter from home that was delivered as a package to Lewis as part of his task.

Lewis read out the message, which included a dig at Bear and you can watch that in the clip below.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
