Here's all the latest news from Big Brother 2017 over the past 24 hours.

The big story in the house yesterday was the start of a brand new prize money twist, The Steal.

BB announced that housemates would be split into two teams, competing for £20,000 of the prize fund.

Andrew, Ellie, Hannah, Isabelle, Kieran and Sam are in the GOLD Team while Chanelle, Charlotte, Deborah, Raph and Tom are the BLACK team.

"The two teams must sleep in separate bedrooms. All friendships made in the house so far, must be kept to one side," Big Brother continued, "Your own focus now is to earn back the money for your team.

The first task saw Tom and Hannah do battle in a disgusting eating challenge for £2,000.

Later, the second task involved Andrew and Raph as Big Brother gathered them in the task room behind two podiums as the other housemates watched on.

They were told time is money in a test of nerves as Big Brother started to read out sums of cash. If they buzzed in, the cash would be theirs but they could only buzz once and if they waited too long, they'd get nothing.

Big Brother then started to announce amounts: £105, £280, £560, and £1,323.

We'll have to wait until tonight's highlights show to see how it pans out.

Elsewhere in the house yesterday, Ellie celebrated being able to spend the whole day and night with Sam after they were paired up on the same team.

Meanwhile, outside the house, former housemate Lotan has revealed he's applied to join rival reality series Love Island following his BBUK rejection.

And in more Big Brother news, Isabelle has been crowned the new favourite to win the series with now less than two weeks to go until the final.

Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5.

Tonight's episode airs at 9PM.
