Darnell runs away
Darnell began the running event this afternoon (4.15pm). The US songwriter stepped up to the challenge of completing a 1.5km treadmill run as part of the 'Big Brother Games 2008' task.
Each housemate must take their turn on the machine, but Sara was not looking forward to her contribution.
She said: "Great. We're gonna have the camera in our face when we're sweating. This is my worst nightmare."
Darnell decided against attaching the safety strap to his wrist before commencing the event.
Big Brother announced: "This is Big Brother. Big Brother will mark the start of the circuit with a starting gun."
After the gun sounded, Darnell jogged at a leisurely pace as housemates cheered him on and discussed what else they would have to do for the task.
Mikey shouted: "Go Darnell!"
Personal trainer Stuart advised Darnell on the best way to move on the treadmill.
He said: "A treadmill is not the same as running so it will feel really weird."
