Celebrity Big Brother 2016 twist sees half the housemates lose a nomination

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Celebrity Big Brother 2016 nominations took place in the house today but not without one last twist.

And it's all down to Saturday's Christmas themed task, which aired in tonight's latest highlights show.

Yesterday, the eight remaining housemates woke up to a festive jingle being played into the bedroom before discovering the rest of the house had been transformed into a Christmas wonderland.

The house was split into two teams for a day of tasks: Frankie took charge of the elves and Katie was made head of the reindeers.

Katie picked Ricky, Bear and Sam for her team while Frankie selected Aubrey, Renee and Marnie.

The two sides then went head to a head in a series of challenges in a sort of Christmas Olympics with games ranging from Brussel sprout eating and speed present unwrapping to riding a spinning Christmas pudding and a giant family board game.

After winning the most tasks, Big Brother revealed that Frankie's Elf team had won and as the losing team, the Reindeers - Katie, Ricky, Bear and Sam - would only make the one nomination. The Elves - Frankie, Aubrey, Renee and Marnie - will make two nominations as usual.

The group nominated in the house today and the final round of Celebrity Big Brother 2016 nominations results will be revealed in Monday night's show.

Those that are up for the axe will join eternally nominated Bear in facing a DOUBLE eviction in Tuesday night's live show with those that leaving missing out on Friday's final.
