The Irish athletics champion informed the other housemates of her plans after a Diary Room session in which Big Brother confirmed that she has to keep her marker pen-inscribed glasses on her face.
Within moments of entering the house as non-housemates, Big Brother told Rodrigo he would have to shave off the eyebrows of another houseguest and draw a moustache and glasses on their face using permanent marker pen.
Noirin volunteered and was instantly granted housemate status. However, since then she has been forced to redraw them on her face every day for the last 10 days.
After a chat with Big Brother, Noirin was told that while she was free to wash off her glasses, she could face a punishment.
Exasperated with the current situation, she announced that she is planning to go on hunger strike to strike back against Big Brother and to prove a point.
A number of the other housemates, including Freddie and Angel, were contemplating joining her.
