The 'Big Brother' housemates started practicing the 'Thriller' routine for this week's shopping task this afternoon. The group must learn the zombie dance featured in the video to the song, with Nicole taking the part of Michael Jackson and Rex acting as choreographer.
After changing into their black and white costumes, the contestants began limbering up for the routine in the luxury bedroom.
An excitable Mikey got his Michael Jackson hit mixed up and began yelling "I'm bad!" before Rex took control of the situation and instructed the team to perform star jumps.
Despite their initial excitement the housemates found the dance moves hard to master, much to the irritation of Rex.
He blasted "It is pretty damn simple."
Later, Rex and Nicole prompted a furious outburst from blind Mikey when they suggested he might like to sit out the task because it would be hard for him.
After Mikey made the rest of the contestants laugh when he ended up facing the wrong way during a practice session, the pair told Mikey Big Brother had instructed he could sit out the task if he wanted.
Nicole adding it was only to be expected he was finding it hard as none of the others had managed to learn the routine either.
Mikey responded angrily, saying he was "sick" of everyone blaming him for the group's lack of dancing prowess.
