14:00 - 15:00
Welcome back to DS:BB live updates. I'm Claire and I'll be taking you through the next few hours.
With last nights' shenanigans between Jason and Vanessa the question for today is " Michelle & Stuart or Jason & Vanessa? Discuss. Keep the emails coming throughout the afternoon and I'll get as many up as I can.
Someone asked me yesterday how to pronounce "Myfanwy". It is a welsh name meaning 'lily of the valley' and is pronounced either "Muh-van-wee" or "Muh-van-oi" depending on the area in Wales. And before anyone asks, I have welsh parentage and it's a family name.
14:07 - 14:30
Nadia is sat on the decking with Ahmed getting a pep talk whilst Stu sews some more for his costume. Marco, as usual, is in the hot-tub. It seems the online streaming is a little behind E4 as we are just seeing Nadia and Victor doing the task. Shell has helped them both get dressed. We see Nadia do her dance with the others clapping. They wander inside to get disrobed.
Vanessa is also altering her costume - maybe her romp with J last night (she was wearing it) caused some damage? Ahh, lovely view of the taps :)
David: "With the amount of time Jay spends in bed, its a wonder he's woo'd vannessa (or Dan) at all!!!"
Nadia, after changing, gets back into bed. Victor has put his bathrobe on - wow, that must be hot in this heat! J is also in bed - quelle surprise. Victor now goes for a shower and seems to enjoy it's coldness.
In the BS Michelle says "he says its not bothering him but he so can't take it". Actually he seems to be enjoying it love - I would too on such a hot day. Victor sings in the shower. Michelle comments that he doesn't wash his nether regions (he has shorts on) and wonders what's the point in having a shower if you don't wash those bits. Victor says "nice and lesiurely shower" - is he trying to make BB think he doesn't care? He comes out and straight in to the hot-tub.
Marco gets out of the tub to ask BB to put the bubbles on.
Nadia is sunbathing but doesn't have her microphone on - I feel another mic warning coming on ;) Dan is also sunbathing and is beginning to look a little pink. LOL - BB warns the hm's about mics - what did I say? Nadia doesn't seem to have moved though.
Ahmed is on the decking in the shade, watching. I must say I'd be spooked by him just sitting watching all the time.
14:45 - 15:00
Stu claims the tomatoes he's just eaten are "amazing" to Shell, as she offers to get him some more.
Back to the BS. Emma says to Victor on the screen "have you washed your willy yet?". So rude! :D Michelle for once doesn't have the headphones on. She says she's a "real tinkle-pot today" Tinkle tinkle tinkle". Emma warns her to not use too much loo roll, but she's only using one square so that's ok.
Ewww, Vanessa looks like she's squeezing a spot at her bikini line! View of Nadia - she now has a mic on.
Another BB mic reminder! Ahmed and Dan wonder who it is who doesn't have their mic on. "They should tell their names" says Ahmed - he has a point. Dan has moved to the decking but is still in the sun - he's gonna be sore tonight! - as the bubbles come on in the hot-tub. BB seems to have listened to the hm's and asks Marco to ensure his mic is correctly positioned and working correctly. Dan tells him to speak directly into the mic to check it's working properly. He does and apologies to BB that "I was just going to get a sandwich and that and was gonna get straight back in, that's why I wasn't wearing it correctly - sorry".
14:30 - 14:45
Oh, we so need the sprinklers to come on now!
Have the girls been given a revenge task yet? I've not heard or read that they have - does anyone know different?
Mike: "Nostaglia is a funny thing. :) I've realised that I miss Kitten!.
I think she meant well, and was great fun to watch in the house." topic question: Hmm. I reckon Jason and Dan :) I dont think Jason and vanessa is ever going to be anything more that a contrived game plan." "They should have bb turn the water off a few seconds after Victor stands under it, and then turn it on again as soon as he gets out. well it is supposed to be Evill BB this year" "Why bother dipping the sound / using the "oven glove cam" - They brought a housemate in to cover these situations - Ahmed" . You can just send it all in one email Mike :D Good point though.
Smiffy: "Get as many up as you can? Mmm! I think that's happening quite well in the house without you giving a hand to the proceedings! Oh god, I've turned into Carry on Big Brother, The Movie!" Ooooooo Matron!
David: "I do see shell as the new "celeb chef" after her time in the house.... a new take on Delia "12 is fun"?"
Victor and Marco are discussing the possibility of fibre-optic camera's around the tub, snug and toilet.
Loubie: "Have a missed something? If Stuart is England why is he dressed in pink, apart from the obvious that pink is the colour you go when you're embarassed. Which is surely how our team feels today, bless their little footballing socks." I think he's just getting in touch with his feminie side.
David answers my question about the revenge task: "Nothing that I have seen... and 've been watching since 8am (sad - you decide) ooh its kicking off with Ahmed and Shell" Is it? Not on the online streaming yet.
Shell is eating, sat cross-legged on the decking. Victor is doing pretend meaty laughs from the tub. Marco has told Ahmed that there's a massage table - is there? Marco then says "this has just been like a health farm".
Jack: "Do you mean the girls in the bedsit handing out revenge, or do you mean has any revenge been handed out on the girls in the main house by the BS? All that I have seen is Victor's continuing cold showers, the chilli cake and the sprinklers on Jason, but from the Channel 4 programme last night, I think the Sprinklers go all the bathing housemates in the garden." I meant the BS girls wreaking their revenge today, not the ones carrying on from yesterday.
Ahmed goes up to Shell to apologise. Shell plays it down but says she was intimidated. All the men joking intimidate her she says. She tells him it wasn't specifically him (that isn't what she said last night!). He again apologises sincerely if he offended her and again she says it wasn't personal to him and thanks him for his apology. He walks off. Hmmm, she's changing her feelings/story here isn't she!
Oh, go on, confuse me! "Theres obviously 2 mikes around - i only sent the Ahmed comment!!" I'm not sure which Mike this is from :-/
Topic question Billy Phatu: "I'd love to see Vanessa and Jason stay together. I think they go really well together, even though Jason's sexuality has been under question in the press. However, I can't help wondering what kind of impact Malicious Michelle will have on their relationship. She seems convinced that Jay is playing Vanessa, and will probably thoroughly enjoy letting Vanessa know! I wonder if Vanessa will stick by her guy though?" She got jealous when she heard that Dan had had a tumble with him, so maybe she will.
M&E get a laminate about them being able to nominate. Michelle reads it out, at times stopping to check Emma understands what things mean. They are the normal sort of stuff we expect about nom's - they will start in one hour. The thing they get excited about is not being able to be nominated themselves. Michelle is definitely taking a motherly role with Emma, telling her to get the oil hot before frying things. Emma has to clarify everything the laminate says with Michelle, then goes off for a think.
Ahmed is again apologising to Shell. He says he's always thought of her as a younger sister. He's not here to judge anyone he says.
dirdybirdy: "just read on the whats happening now thread that nominations are in an hour... lol.. looks like the screetchers could be back in the main house later on then eh?" The press release I recieved about the BS says they go back in on Wednesday, which makes sense as the nominations are totally over then, as is the weekly task which they've not been involved in.
David: "The baths next to the mud hut/ snug/ love shack have lids that double as massage mats...... in a terrible creamy leather..." Yes, i remember now.
With E&M cooking something I will change over to the next hour. Notably, M has refused E's offer of her food - not surprised as it's all fried and looks awful.
