Housemates go blind

Big Brother took housemates' sight today (1.30pm).
The new task forces contestants to experience the house from Mikey's perspective by blindfolding them for three hours.
The group have been broken up into pairs so one blindfolded housemate can be led around by the other.
After three hours they will swap roles.
Mikey - who was left permanently blind after an operation on his eye went wrong - chose the pairs and will advise them on how to deal with life without vision.
The pairs are:
Mario and Rebecca
Kat and Mohamed
Rex and Jen
Dale and Rachel
Lisa and Stuart
Luke and Darnell
Rex shouted 'no' when his partner was announced as he and Jennifer have not got along since he ruined her painting.
Jennifer asked if the partners have to stay together because she feels she knows the house very well.
Rex repaid Mikey for his advice during the task.
He said: "Mikey your flies are undone. I'm just giving you a tip back."
