Housemates are divided as Alex and Jackson take £5,000 each from the prize fund.
As part of Annihilation week, Big Brother calls each of the housemates one-by-one to the diary room. Housemates must choose whether they want to be rich or poor. If they choose rich they will enjoy luxury food, treats and £5,000 from the prize fund
If they choose poor they will not receive £5,000, live on basic food, have no hot water and their bedding will be replaced with rags. Ryan, Alex and Jackson are the only housemates who choose to be rich. After exiting the diary room, these three go to the room labelled rich. The poor housemates go to the poor area
There are two chairs in the rich room, as Ryan and Alex were the first two housemates, they are sitting in the chairs as Jackson enters the room. Some housemates comment that the rich housemates are ‘selfish’ and ‘unfair’
As there are only two spaces, Big Brother asks Jackson to demote either Ryan or Alex to the poor area. Jackson decides to demote Ryan as he’s closer to Alex. Ryan joins the poor housemates. Alex and Jackson are now £5,000 richer. They will live the life of luxury in the house until further notice.
Big Brother announces to the housemates that £10,000 has been taken off the winners prize fund, bringing it down to £70,000.
Hughie, Jason, Jayne, Ryan, Sam, Evelyn, Laura and Andy are now the poor housemates and will live on basic rations, no hot water and will sleep in rags
