Big Brother 2018: 'Blood Money' twist shocks ahead of first eviction

Big Brother 2018

Big Brother 2018's 'Blood Money' twist took place tonight ahead of Friday's first eviction.

Last Friday night, Big Brother opened its 'Bank of Big Brother', involving a brand new Big Brother currency 'Big Coin'. The new currency plays a very important role throughout in the new season.

Big Brother told the housemates that they would have the chances to acquire Big Coins through tasks, twists and challenges. Big Coins can then be used to buy privileges, luxuries, and experiences and also change the fate of the game.

Revealing the very first way the Big Coins would matter, Big Brother explained to the group that there would be no nominations this week and instead the three housemates with the fewest Big Coins will face eviction automatically.

Before the 'Blood Money' task this evening, the three housemates at risk were Anamélia Silva, Tomasz Wania, and Cameron Cole.

On the other hand, the three housemates with the most Big Coins were Akeem Griffiths, Kenaley Amos-Sissons and Sîan Hamshaw.

In the 'Blood Money' ceremony, one at a time housemates had to pick a coin out of a pool of 'Blood'. On the coins were either forfeits for their own coin total or powers they could use to change other's totals.

Here's what happened...

Sian chose Akeem for her coin, which said: "You must choose one housemate to lose 250 Big Coins"
Kay's coin read: "You lose 50 Big Coins from your total"
Brooke chose Akeem for her coin, which said: "You must choose one housemate to lose 100 Big Coins"
Anamélia chose Tomasz for her coin, which said: "You must choose one other housemate to double their Big Coin total."
Akeem's coin read: "You lose 50 Big Coins from your total"

Kenaley chose Sian for her coin, which said: "You must choose one housemate to lose 150 Big Coins"
Lewis F's coin read: "You lose 50 Big Coins from your total"
Isaac chose Kenaley for his coin, which said: "You must choose one housemate to lose half their Big Coins"
Lewis G chose Anamélia for his coin, which said: "You must choose one housemate to bankrupt. They'll lose all their Big Coins."
Cian chose Cameron for his coin, which said: "You must choose one housemate to gain 250 Big Coins"

Zoe's coin red: "You must choose one housemate to lose 150 Big Coins"
Tomasz chose Anamélia for his coin, which said: "You must choose one housemate to gain 100 Big Coins"
Cameron chose Brooke for his coin, which said: "You must choose one housemate to gain 250 Big Coins"

At the end of the ask, the three housemates at risk were Anamélia Silva, Sîan Hamshaw and Lewis Flanagan.

At the other end, at the top were Akeem Griffiths, Lewis Gregory and Isaac Jagroop.

Meanwhile, housemates are still unaware that Zoe has been given a secret advantage in the game this week.

On launch night, she chose to sleep in bed 13 which had a special significance. It gave her the power to steal another housemates' bank balance at the end of the week.

Big Brother 2018 continues Sunday-Fridays at 10PM on Channel 5. The first eviction takes place on Friday night.
