Big Brother 2017 housemates clash over whether women should pay for dates

Big Brother 2017

The Big Brother 2017 housemates have got themselves involved in a debate over gender equality.

It follows this week's nominations twist where housemates had to avoid losing games to keep themselves safe from eviction.

Isabelle and Sam lost one of the games but there was a twist when Big Brother told the pair: "Sam and Isabelle, your job is now simple.

"You must decide between yourselves which one of you should face eviction this week. You have five minutes to make your decision."

As the other housemates watched on, Isabelle immediately put herself forward. Sam didn't disagree and his apparent inaction in response to Isabelle's decision didn't go unnoticed by the group.

They turned on him when the pair returned to the main house with Simone suggesting his actions were somehow sexist.

"You're no man!" she snapped, "You've no respect towards women!"

Today in the house, the fallout continued when Sam dared to confess he would let a woman pay for a date.

Ellie took charge and declared she would train Sam on how to act properly with girls.

"I'm teaching Sam to be better on dates," she told the house, "I'm going to be his trainer.

"He'd let the girl pay for the meal. It's bad, isn't it?"

"Why would you do that?!" Sue quizzed Sam.

Sam defended himself to the girls, explaining: "I didn't ask, she said 'I'll pay for it'."

"This is f**king s**t," declared Ellie.

"She didn't text me back," Sam reflected. "That was it for that one. Yeah, I didn't get a reply back."

Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5.
