After a morning spent lazing in the sun, the 11 remaining contestants on the show were handed instructions to split into teams for a number of races today (28.06.09).

Three Big Brother tokens -which can be exchanged for hot water and other goods – will be awarded for completing the task.

Housemate Marcus read out the details to the others.

He said:"The reader of these instructions is the referee. The remaining ten housemates will be split into two teams.

"The events are as follows – egg and spoon race, skipping race, sack race, rolling race and relay race."

The housemates were also given another incentive - the winning team will receive a party held in their honour.

Marcus described that the party would include: "Takeaway food, music and booze."

Two team captains, Noirin and Siavash, were chosen. Noirin picked Charlie, Lisa, Rodrigo and Sophie to be on her team, while Siavash chose Kris, Karly, Freddie and Sree.
