Continuing with what must be the topic on every BB fans lips this afternoon - Becki's entrance to the house. What are your first impressions, what effect do you think it will have on group dynamics and who do you think will be affected the most by her entrance? Let me know by emailing in using the form above.
19:00 - 19:15
Becki is still working on Ahmed's shirt, Nadia, sat on her bunk, watching and looking very unhappy about Becki's presence. Nadia complains that Ahmed's been picking on her today - trying to get his attention moved on to her perhaps? Ahmed tells Baecki that for tonight she is a guest, so to relax.
Nadia notices that the food is just about to be served and starts to round people up. Shell and Michelle are getting the table ready, Michelle worrying that her shepherds pie will be horrid - it can't be more horrid than that dress looks on you dear (she is wearing Nadia's awful yellow-white-brown 70's curtain dress). Shell has wiped all the surfaces of the kitchen so hard it's amazing there's any surface left on them. She takes the garlic bread out of the oven, Michelle still worrying about her culinary skills. They give us a time-check - ten to seven.
Supper is served - curried shepherd's pie, grated carrot and garlic bread.
David: "ooh ikea... is it just me or does everyone who goes in spend £200 quid or so, as many things seem reasonably priced as you go around the maze.....
on a side note..Becki.... at least she's making ahmed interact" We managed a bit under that, but have loads of new ideas for our bedroom that are going to cost a fair bit.....
Tom: "I really hope Becki joins the Harem - if she doesn't, Victor and Jasons' egos will increase by yet another 110%..."
kt44: "i wz wettin myself watchin vic and j!! der so funny! "oooh j, she's got the hots 4 u..." "Mayb i'll 'soften her up'" Charming... i hope vanessa was watchin and has an earful ready for him when he comes out... the harem seem 2 b coping wel with her arrival, js provin that they're the reely strong group in the house as they are not threatened by her arrival the way vic and j were.
btw, was becki's arrival shown on bblb at 2:00pm? i recorded it coz i wz out ridin, did she arrive live on the show?" I don't know as I was out myself - maybe someone who saw BBLB can confirm?
19:15 - 19:30
Victor tells Michelle how good the food is, Marco agreeing. They all seem to be tucking in to it well. Stuart offers his second slice of garlic bread as he doesn't want it - Jay quickly takes it not letting anyone get in first.
Becki says "Just for a change why don't we all just stay in tonight and play some games" which doesn't get much response. Becki is asking Michelle how she made her shepherd's pie - it's made with quorn mince. Victor asks who is washing up tonight - I don't think he volunteers though.
Shell and Nadia go outside for a cigarrette when they finish their dinner, although others are still eating. Victor actually IS washing up! My apologies.
Kerri: "Yes, it was shown live on BBLB" Thanks Kerri :) And kt44 has emailed to say thanks too :)
cazzywazzy: "i think it wz much smarter to bring a housemate earlier in the series than really late like last year. becki seems nice, i quite like her. if she has seen bb then she wil try to expose j and vics gameplan i bet!"
VJ: "Hi Claire, hope ur well and have had a good weekend. Was just wondering what u think of Ness's attitude towards Jason now she's out of the house? She says she doesn't fancy him and they snogged because of the beer goggles. Makes u think about all the other times when no beer was involved." I'm not at all surprised, it was one of those "holiday" type romances that were fun at the time but no way long-term, and partly regretted afterwards.
19:30 - 19:45
Ahmed sees some chocolates and Shell says he can have one if he promises to do something for the "ladies" in payment. The mind boggles at what he will do!
Becki has joined the girls outside for a ciggie - I hope she brought some in seeing as she smokes. Nadia still looks very tight-lipped, most unhappy. Dan tells Becki exactly what happened when she came into the house - that they ignored BB a few times when they were asked to gather on the sofas. Lots of sound dips. Sound comes back with them trying to decide when they are going to have the alcohol Becki brought in - the girls want to dress up for the occasion apparently.
They are all sat on the sofas together out of choice for the first time in a very long time. Nadia is ensuring she is showing plenty of cleavage. More sound cuts - sorry. They are all telling Becki the nicknames they've been given in the house - Dandalf the Gay, the Gasman, etc. Becki is glad the name "Gasman" has been taken as Jason reassures her more than one person deserves it!
They wonder if they can bash Maureen, the statue, up - Becki worries that it may now be BB's property and they may be planning to auction her off or something so they should check before they do so. She is sent to check what's under the towel, Michelle tells her ALL parts are molded from a hm's body and she asks who's penis was used - Jason lays claim to it. Becki says it's everything a girl could want and more. She said they should change it so it has her nose - bet Michelle's pleased about that!
dannyl: "i think her songs are preety cool. is she famous? i still dont actually like her tho."
VJ: "Thanks for commenting :) Another BB romance bites the dust :)
Looks like Jason and Victor up this week :( shame i find them entertaining" I know what you mean
19:45 - 20:00
Nadia is cuddling Marco as they watch what's going on. The others start teasing Marco, but sound keeps dipping so it's impossible to say what about, but they keep asking "is it true Marco?". Becki tells the girls she has some glittery stuff in her case - "What's yours is mine and what's mine is mine" she says to laughs. They explain toilet etiquette to her, explaining the "Emma keep out" sign on the door. MMmmm, they discuss constipation, Shell suggesting that if you keep eating it will bung up so much it'll come out the top end - yuck!
Becki now describes a modern artist who uses human bodies with sections cut and everything visible, except the skin and hair has been removed. Shell describes a sculptor who uses human placentas - they have a lovely topic of conversation tonight! Things move on to how medical students treat cadavers much of it myth.
Suddenly most of them move over to the bedroom, seemingly to get dressed up for the evening. Becki has lent Michelle a short dress, apologising that it's old, but Michelle saying it's perfect.
Back in the living area Jason is now washing up whilst Dan puts the egg chairs back in place. The boys discuss Becki's breasts - Ahmed says they look much more natural than Nadia's, surprised to hear they are false. Victor makes up a headline "Becki - Busty New Big Brother Babe". They still are saying how shocked they were when she walked in, that when she walked through to the DR they just sat open-mouthed, in shock, not getting up and greetting her. They all knew something was going to happen though.
VJ: "It happens a lot in BB tho, people despise people for what they are doing and when they're voted out and the house is boring they complain. Canna win."
Linda: "Marco is talking to Nadia about Becki. He says that he feels shy and uncomfortable around her. Nadia agrees and exclaims "Can I tell you a secret? She seems so fake to me!!". Marco and Nadia both laugh seemingly in agreement."
jenni: "Wat is actually involved in ur job" Which one? Doing the updates or my real job?
Changing over to the next hour - keep those emails coming.
