Housemates' Big zoo

The 'Big Brother' house will become the 'Big Brother' zoo for this week's shopping task. The housemates will split into pairs and will have to wear animal costumes and complete animal-based challenges today and tomorrow.
The contestants will dress as elephants, flamingos, kangaroos, rabbits, seals, a two-headed llama and a zookeeper.
Luke and Mikey have decided to be the elephants and will have to memorise an extract from 'The Elephant's Child' by Rudyard Kipling.
Mohamed - who many of the housemates moan eats too much - and Darnell are the rabbits and will take part in a carrot-eating contest.
Lisa and Stuart have opted to be the flamingos and must learn how to stand on one leg. They will be required to display their new talent by balancing for 20 minutes in the final test.
Rex and Dale are the kangaroos and will have to improve their strength using boxing equipment.
They will hit a Test Your Strength punch-bag at the beginning of the task and will have to beat their score by 10 per cent at the end.
Kathreya and Rachel will be the two-headed llama and will have to wear one costume with a head hole at either end.
However, the hardest task awaits Jennifer and Rebecca who are the seals.
As these animals like to be kept wet, every time Seal's 'Kiss Fom A Rose' is played the pair must run to a special podium where zookeeper Mario will douse them in salty, fishy water.
For the group to pass the task and win a luxury shopping budget no more than two pairs can fail the test.
