6pm - 7pm

By
6.01pm: Ray chalks the bacon price up on the board as Sissy gets to the chicken; ;chicken thighs are lovely', says Federico, and Sissy recites all the chicken varieties with roast chicken thighs costing £1.99. 'We need to get moving', she says as Cameron comments that they don't want raw chicken; Gos wonders if there's any diced chicken, but Sissy mentions that the cheapest chicken is 1kg for £2.04. She passes the list to Gos to cast his expert eye over as she looks over the vegetarian stuff.

6.03pm: 'Roast doesn't mean it's been roasted', Cameron comments as Sissy gets to the 20 veggie country pies for £1.46; Steph wonders if they're Fray Bentos pies as the boys continue to look over the chicken for some breasts to make stir-frys with. 'Let's go for it', Sissy says by calling everyone to attention, and Gos's attention is grabbed by balsamic vinegar, olive oil at £2.75, and as Ray clarifies the balsamic price, Steph looks for some butter to choose.

6.05pm: Federico tells Ray to add two lots of chicken breast fillets at £7.99 each to the list; Ray clarifies the price as Sissy tells everyone that they've got 20 minutes left to finish the list, before suggesting that they buy two lots of CountryLife butter for 82p each, but Steph manages to get two tubs of vegetable spread on the list too. Sissy states that she'll do cheese and dairy products, then alcohol before going back; cheese is next, with Gos suggesting they get one block of cheddar as Justine comments that they've got loads of cheese as it is.

6.08pm: Two tubs of cottage cheese are added to the list, but Sissy dismisses the cream cheese as being too expensive; parmesan is added at 77p, as is medium mature cheddar at £2.69 for 1. 'That's all it says here', Sissy tells Gos after he wonders how big the block is; 'do we need milk?', Sissy asks and after being told yes, they decide to get semi-skimmed rather than a whole host of different varieties. The milk costs 98p, but no youghurts are added as Steph clarifies the remaining types of food still to go, many of which they get anyway.

6.10pm: Twelve tins of baked beans are added to the list at 35p each, as is three tins of kidney beans at 55p, while Anouska is blissfully unaware of the shopping list as she styles Tania's hair; sweetcorn is added as Gos talks potential dishes over with Scott, and as butterbeans are added, it must be said that the compiling of the shopping list is disorganised to say the least. Four tins of tuna go onto the list at 57p each, while Gos walks to the diary room and Jon chalks up the new items while working out the total cost; Ray helps him.

6.12pm: Bulgar beans - whatever they are - go onto the list, as does spaghetti at 76p; Sissy reads out the list of pastas available, and as Gos clarifies that they're all durum wheat varieties, they decide to add 'comeni' pasta which I've probably spelled wrongly.


Hopefully there are still plenty of you taking a look at quarter past six on a Saturday evening, so if you have any thoughts, comments or views on any aspect of BB4, share them with us by e-mailing the address above.


6.17pm: The shopping list is still being resolved as BB calls Scott to the diary room; Sissy has moved onto cola at 48p, orange squash and blackcurrant squash at 62p each, and as she realises that there aren't any spirits on the list to choose from, she gets to the beers and wine instead. Ray clarifies that they've ordered two boxes of cigarettes as Federico wonders whether the tomato sauce is pasta sauce or ketchup; the first wine variety is Comula Combard at £2.99, which Justine thinks they should only get one bottle of. Next on the list is a 3litre box of Liebraumlich at £7.97, which Ray asks for help to spell; the good ol' BB staple of cider is next...

6.20pm: and as Sissy runs through the varieties, she tries to persuade them to buy Dry Blackthorn which contains 2.25litres; it's added before she gets to the beer, and they choose to get twenty bottles of Budweiser. 'It's premium beer', John says as Federico wonders if he can get Kronenburg. 'It's a nice lager', he says as Gos wonders how many bottles are included in the pack. Federico is called to the diary room.

6.22pm: 'We're not gonna be able to get hammered every night', Scott says as Ray states that the grand total is £111.40; 'twelve pounds to go', Jon says as Federico comes back from the diary room and states that BB told him they will not be getting a barbecue. Gos wonders whether they should get any kitchen foil as Sissy looks to see if they've missed anything; they haven't got any fruit, and as Scott tells everyone to get cracking, Jon comments that the price of bananas - 50p for 1 - is outrageous before Sissy comments that she misread the actual price of 15p. They add twenty to the list as Scott wonders if anyone wants any apples - surprisingly, Cameron's voice is not heard.

6.25pm: Ray claps his hands to restore order as Federico asks Gos if he wants to buy a canteloupe or honeydew melon at £1.29, while Sissy mentions that cherry tomatoes cost £1.19 for a pack; Gos asks if that completes the shopping list, but they still have £4 remaining; shouts of more wine and cider are heard as Jon tells everyone that they have £4.23 to go, while Federico asks Gos if he wants to get some 'last minute fruit'. Jon says that he may have added an item in twice mistakenly, but they agree to cut their losses and close the shopping list, which draws a mini round of applause.

6.27pm: 'That was hard', Sissy says as Ray wonders if they should nominate someone to keep track of the prices, while Cameron suggests that they compile their dishes day-by-day from next week to keep a more precise shopping list; 'that was quite stimulating', he says as some of the housemates leave the dining table. Justine tells Cameron that she feels 'quite frantic' after compiling the list, while Sissy suggests some items they can add on next week before reckoning that BB 'will give us our task now' to win next week's weekly budget.

6.29pm: Gos waits to go into the diary room as Scott wonders if he'll get so huingover in the house that he won't feel like eating at all the next day; Tania clarifies how many cigarettes they've ordered as everyone goes outside to look at the newly named chickens Doris, Stella, Rudy, Matilda, leaving three for Nush to name; Federico describes each chicken in turn, and as Nush mentions that there's one still to name, Federico calls him 'token - the token chicken' before suggesting that it could be called 'the artist formerly known as chicken'.

6.32pm: Nush wonders if any fish was ordered in the shopping list as we Gos go into the diary room and hold up the completed list to the camera; no sound is heard as Sissy, Cameron and Justine clarify exactly what vegetables are in the patch. 'We'll have to eat a staple diet now', Cameron says as Anouska says that she likes the vegetable that isn't in there - broccoli. Tania comments that she has a herb garden at home as Anouska kneels on one of the dining chairs, while Steph wonders how many eggs have been laid by the chickens; Jon whoops as two more have been laid to take the total to four as Cameron clarifies how they should be washed.

6.35pm: Steph mentions that she'll make scrambled eggs tomorrow as Federico, Ray and Nush look at the chickens pecking their way around their coop; 'we've watered some stuff', she says as Federico wonders exactly where the coop bedding is. He also mentions that they've watered the vegetable patch as Nush tells him that the 'ugly chicken' has been named Parsley. Back at the dining table, Steph tells the housemates about a £40 lobster slap up meal she got for a tenner on Christmas Eve as a friend of hers worked at the restaurant they went to.

6.37pm: The sound is dipped on Feed A as Federico and Scott link arms before going back to look at the chickens, which Ray is alredy doing; Scott wonders if there's any spinach in the vegetable patch as Sissy looks through the welcome pack to find out, before the sound is cut. It returns with Federico talking about broad beans.


Kevin Symonds asks "Has the full list of things that BB provides the housemates been read out by anyone? I remember last year they were buying things they were given AND had growing in the garden." Well, I'm not sure whether it was the full list, but Sissy certainly informed the housemates of what they get already quite a few times; can anyone e-mail in to clarify?


6.43pm: Ray flicks through a magazine of some sort as Nush asks him if there'll be a task tonight; 'there'll be a challenge of some sort', he says before telling Nush that it'll take place at about 10pm. 'That's late', she says before wondering why no-one else apart from her wants to go for a swim; Ray tells her that it's quite cold outside. Meanwhile, the rest of the housemates seem to be gathered around the kitchen as Cameron proposes that they use frozen peas to add to their dinner, with Gos wondering how much chicken he should cook for everyone.

6.45pm: Nush teaches Ray some workout techniques, presumably, as she stretches her arms out and touches her toes while singing 'You Spin Me Round'; 'I was quite stiff then', Nush tells Ray before adding that she couldn't touch her toes before she started working out. She tries to teach him some leg strengthening techniques as Sissy has a look see, before trying to recall some reflexology techniques of her own.

6.47pm: As Ray wonders whether trying all the techniques will make him quite sore, Anouska does an impression of someone hyperventilating, or so it seems, as Cameron walks around the kitchen and Federico mentions a friend of his who plays guitar. Anouska wonders how many potatoes they'll need, and whether they'll be making mash as BB calls Nush to the diary room; Cameron tells Gos to get the mixed veg into the pan 'bish bash bosh', which everyone in the vicinity repeats.

6.54pm: Jon is by the dining table with Justine, while Scott states that he's glad he's away from his mobile phone as he uses it too much to Federico, as the two swivel round on the chairs by the kitchen worktop; Steph wonders if they can play squash, and Federico comments that he's glad they're out of reach from others as Justine tells Jon about the 'very nice, colourful' house she drew for the BB psychologists.

6.56pm: Justine wonders if she'll be considered to have problems and issues from the house she drew as Jon asks her if she writes right or left handed; 'right handed', she says as Sissy asks what's for dinner; Jon settles back in the lounge with Sissy, Steph and Justine as Ray leaves the kitchen and Cameron helps himself to some more crisps.

6.58pm: Federico and Cameron talk about a comedy sketch focusing on a ficituous village in Orkney and the Outer Hebrides; 'the wind blew and a man blew down', Federico comments on the joke news report featured in the sketch which was performed by the guy from Rab C Nesbit. Cameron looks mildly offended.
