Big Brother becomes puppet master

The housemates have literally become Big Brother's puppets as part of their latest task.

Big Brother gathered them on the sofa where they found muppet-style puppets of themselves, and were informed via video by 90s TV presenting duo Zig and Zag that they must only talk through their puppets all day, in a bid to win a birthday party for Army veteran Steve.

Steve's puppet has a tattooed neck and a black marble for one eye, while Katie Price lookalike Corin's puppet is orange, with enormous breasts.

Welsh minister Dave's puppet is dressed in a cassock and Irish Caiomhe's puppet has an Elvis-style quiff, sparkling sunglasses and big red lips.

Posh boy Ben's puppet has a very large chin and squatter Shabby's has a lip ring, heavily eye-lined eyes and a hat.

Vegan Sunshine's puppet has an enormous nose which Shabby and Australian John James have been teasing her about, asking: "Why do you think they have given you such a big nose Sunshine?"

Sunshine made her puppet ask John James': "Do you fancy Sunshine?" But the Aussie scoffed: "How can I fancy you with a big schnoz like that?"

Amputee Steve's puppet has his prosthetic metal legs made from spatulas, with children's trainers stuck on the end.

Steve laughed: "I hope disability rights don't take this the wrong way! Well they look like mine, don't they?" Ife reassured him "They've done their best."

The housemates must wear the puppets on one hand at all times, even when trying to eat, smoke, shave and go to the loo. And they must move their puppet's mouths every time they speak, even in the Diary Room.
