Housemates token gestures

This year's 'Big Brother' housemates have to buy special tokens for beauty products this year.
Big Brother has decided that things like hair straighteners, clippers, tongs and other non-essential items will have to come out of the shopping budget.
That means extra pressure will be on the 16 contestants to pass their weekly task, otherwise they will not only be hungry but also unkempt.
The new rule is not the only change Big Brother has made in a bid to get tough.
Housemates who misbehave will be sent to 'jail' and persistent offenders will have to contemplate their actions in a padded cell.
The house smokers also have to indulge their habit in a giant ashtray which they have to keep their feet in at all times.
If they step out while smoking they will be punished.
Meanwhile, Stephanie and Mario are still struggling with their secret mission.
Just minutes ago the pair - who have to pretend to be a couple otherwise they will face eviction along with Lisa, Mario's real-life girlfriend, and Luke - were chatting about how difficult it is to convince the other housemates they are an item.
Stephanie said: "It's hard isn't it."
