Sophia has been exposed for plotting against Saffia.

Housemates were gathered earlier this afternoon to face punishment for breaking the show's rules about discussing nominations.

Big Brother recited parts of a conversation Sophia - who is up for eviction tomorrow (12.06.09) against Freddie - had with Siavash yesterday (10.06.09), in which she said she was planning to vote for her nemesis Saffia every time she can on the show.

Big Brother said: "Yesterday at 11.41pm in a conversation with Siavash, Sophia said, 'If I don't go I'll tell you this, I'm voting for the leader every week, do you know what I mean?'"

At this point Saffia laughed, guessing who she was referring to.

Big Brother continued, adding Sophia had said: " 'She needs to go. There's nothing exciting about her. Without Charlie and thingy, where is she?' "

Saffia asked Sophia: "So if Charlie wasn't here, I'd be boring?"

Sophia replied: "Yeah I think you're boring."

Saffia challenged: "Fine, take them away."

Saffia also told Charlie she didn't care if Sophia voted for her every week.

Big Brother also told the housemates Marcus and Sree had also broken the rules by telling Freddie - aka Halfwit - they had not voted for him, and said the housemates will be punished by doubling the price of everything for this week's shopping budget.

Siavash said: "So, the game has started."
