Big Brother has set the housemates their latest shopping task, The Zone.
The task seems to be a tribute to (or a ripoff of, we’re not sure yet) The Crystal Maze gameshow.
This morning the group awoke to find that parts of the house had been zoned off with a map similar to what used to feature in The Crystal Maze on the wall of the living room.
The housemates began stuck in the Living Room Zone and were told the rest of the house had been split into five other zones:
– The Kitchen Zone
– The Bathroom Zone
– The Bedroom Zone
– The Diary Zone
– The Garden Zone
As things stand, housemates cannot use any of the five other zones until they’ve earned access and must remain in the living area.
Over the next two days, the group will be a set a challenge in each of the five zones.
For each challenge, Big Brother will tell the housemates how many of them are needed and give a clue as to what the challenge involves before asking them to select who will take part.
The selected housemates will then take on the challenge within the zone and if they pass, win access to that zone for them and the rest of the group, as well as allowing them to take on other challenges.
HOWEVER, should the housemates attempting the challenge fail then they’ll be locked in the zone and will have to remain there for the duration of the task, including sleeping.
The more zones the housemates unlock the better the chances they have of winning a luxury shopping budget at the end of the task.

Day 29: The Zone shopping task - Pie eating contest!
Caught up on how this week's task works? Good. In the Kitchen Zone is a giant stack of twenty savoury pies and a padlocked box containing the 'key' to the room.
Inside four random pies are laminated numbers, representing the padlock combination. Housemates must eat their way through the pies in order to find all four digits. Easy, right? Well, not so much. Once a pie has been selected, it must be eaten to completion with a knife and fork on a plate. If Housemates fail to find all four numbers and unlock the key within an hour, they will remain in the Kitchen Zone – and the zone will remain out of bounds - for the duration of the shopping task.
1.57pm: Jack's still washing up. Not much else to do while you're locked in the kitchen we suppose.
2.24pm: Think Chloe and Jack are sick of being stuck in the Kitchen Zone? #BBUKLive http://t.co/CGxRRPLN1E
3.48pm: Nick and Joel are speculating about the task. They're considering failing the Bathroom Zone on purpose.
