Jayne Connery gets taken to hospital during tonight’s Big Brother as a result of an accident during a bridge building task.
Tonight, housemates take part in a bridge building task and are rewarded with letters from home.
Big Brother explains to Jason in the Diary Room that following recent medical advice he will not be able to take part in the physical element of the task. Jason says he wants to leave the house; “I want my fate in my hands! I’ve had enough of being told what I can and can’t do…I’m only good at the physical part! I have to get to the final.” Big Brother reassures him that there is a role in the task for everybody.
After one hour and thirty-six minutes in the diary room, Jason has decided to stay and take part in the task after all. Big Brother provides the housemates with pads and helmets, and divides them into three teams for the first round of the task. Housemates have been challenged to build a bridge to go over the pool, which will need to support one team member.
The Green team are up first. Evelyn must try and stand and keep her balance on her team’s bridge for 90 seconds, whilst wet sponges and water balloons are being thrown by the other two teams. She successfully manages to stay standing on the bridge for 90 seconds. The Red team are up next, and it’s Laura’s turn to stand on her team’s bridge. She also succeeds in staying on the bridge for 90 seconds.
Finally, it’s the Blue team’s turn. Jayne is the housemate to stand on her team’s bridge, she states; “My legs are like jelly!”. As part of the task, housemates attempt to knock Jayne off her bridge by throwing water balloons and wet sponges at her. Jackson throws a wet sponge that hits her, which makes her lose her balance. Housemates help Jayne out of the pool and a medic is called to attend to her. As a precaution, Jayne is led out of the house and taken to hospital. Jackson feels guilty, housemates reassure him that is was an accident.
Big Brother explains to the housemates that Jayne is fine and receiving expert medical attention off-site. Jayne returns to the house and she confirms to Big Brother that she ‘is feeling good’. She returns to the house where housemates are pleased to see her. Jackson apologises and the pair hug.
