Housemates' potato hell

The housemates in Hell were told they must earn the right to nominate this morning (11.36am). Head of the 'Big Brother' house Darnell - who is living in the Heaven portion of the house along with Rex, Maysoon, Kathreya, Rachel, Mohamed and Dale while the rest reside in Hell - was called to the Diary Room and emerged clutching a set of instructions from Big Brother.
Seeing the excitement in Dale's house he motioned towards the group living in Hell and muttered: "It's not for none of us. It's only for them."
As the housemates all listened attentively, Darnell explained that those on the Hell side of the house would only be allowed to nominate this week if they peeled all the potatoes waiting for them in the garden.
Former bouncer Lisa - who is among those living in Hell - burst into applause at the news.
The contestants in Hell made their way into the garden, where they were confronted by a mountain of spuds.
As the peeling commenced, some of the heavenly housemates decided to spur the others on.
As Rex tried to encourage them, Rebecca snapped: "Yeah, that's it, come and laugh."
Mikey was also less than impressed, saying: "Rex, we're doing the task, not you. This doesn't really involve you."
Irritated Bex added: "Bye! Can you not stand there please? You go and drink your luxury water. We'll sit and peel potatoes to get the right to nominate. My arm hurts already."
Rex walked to the smoking area, put his feet up and declared: "Oh, it's a hard life over here. Mo, are you gonna go for a swim?"
