Blue visit Celeb BB house in ignore the obvious task
Lee Ryan’s boyband Blue performed in the Celebrity Big Brother 2014 house yesterday after the housemates were set the latest incarnation of the classic ‘ignore the obvious’ task.
Yesterday, Big Brother placed a grandfather clock in the living area and told the group that whenever its bell tolls, they must freeze still until the next time they hear the chime.
While they are frozen, surprise guests are sent in to the house to test their mettle – with the celebrities not allowed to respond or react to the intruders in any way.
The first visitors through the door were the other boys from Blue – Simon Webb, Duncan James and Antony Costa – who promptly begun singing their hit single ‘One Love’.
Sam Faiers’ mum Sue followed shortly afterwards, offering some words of encouragement for the TOWIE star, saying: “Everyone out there loves you, all the family miss you, you’ve done us so proud. Billie [Sam's sister] misses you so much, she wanted to be here today to see you.
“How about Ollie then? He’s gorgeous, he’s got our seal of approval.”
Sue then walked over to the former Made In Chelsea cast member, gave him a kiss and told him: “You’re such a gentleman, everybody out there loves you too.”
After she bid farewell, Sam reacted: “Oh my God that was so hard, that was horrible. I can’t believe she’s done that. I thought she’d be too embarrassed to do that. That was amazing.”
Later on, Ollie also came face to face with his mum, sister and pet dog – but while Sam managed to keep her cool, he quickly begun tearing up and shaking his fingers.
“You’ve stood up for yourself, you’ve been brilliant. You’ll be home soon,” smiled Ollie’s mum. “I’m going for Dappy’s hat, I want to make sure it’s on the right way.”
With the dog on the 26-year-old’s lap, his sister added: “We’ve been watching you from behind those little screens. Don’t worry about anything okay?”
Unlike most weekend tasks, this one will last for two days, with more surprises being sprung on the housemates this afternoon. It is the first time that the ignore the obvious task has been done in a UK Celebrity series.
