Ellie Young has had an emotional reunion with her mum in the Big Brother 2017 house.

For this week’s shopping task if the housemates can keep the large lightbulb in the living area powered up they will win a luxury shopping task.

However it won’t be easy; housemates will be tempted by contact from friends & family and if they give in to their temptations, then the large lightbulb will lose power.

Housemates will be able to boost the power to the light bulb if they can light up the dance floor in the garden, whenever music is played into the house

In a new clip from the task, Ellie enters 'The Light' where she is tempted with a chat with her mum.

"If you wish to spend time with your temptation you should alert Big Brother by pulling the cord above you," Big Brother explained.

It took Ellie just seconds to pull the chord, allowing her to speak to her mum and give her a hug.

"I love you so much, I hope I've not let you down," Ellie sobbed.

Her mum reassured: "Everyone's so proud of you."

Elsewhere as part of the shopping task, Chanelle is faced with her temptation; her nana is waiting to speak to her. Chanelle accepts her temptation and the brightness of the light bulb decrease loses powers.

A teary Chanelle asks her nana; “I miss everyone…how’s Jake? Has he dumped me? Does he still want to me with me?” Her nana replies; “He’s been lovely and loves you to death!” She tells Chanelle; “I don’t like that peeing in the hot tub!”

Meanwhile, Raph is tempted by a video from his sister, which he accepts and Tom is tempted by a phone call from his girlfriend which he also accepts.

Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5.
