Temperatures have been raised in the Big Brother house after on-off lovebirds Ziggy and Chanelle had a steamy clinch in the shower.

The couple, who made up after a string of rows, decided to have some mid-afternoon nookie on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old male model checked the coast was clear from time to time as the pair romped in the shower, but it wasn’t clear how far the couple went.

The lovebirds, who got together just days after Ziggy joined the house, have already caused bookmakers to pay out for bets placed on them having sex.

Moaning Nicky is likely to become the fifth person to be evicted from the house, although the show gave her one last chance to make viewers laugh.

Big Brother asked Nicky to prepare a two minute stand-up comedy routine for other housemates, without telling them it was a task.

Unfortunately it wasn’t the laugh a minute she’d hoped for – with Charley even walking out part-way through one joke.

“It’s funny dammit,” snapped Nicky. “Can’t you just laugh at it? My jokes are hilarious.”

Finally she raised some chuckles, and was told she had passed the task, earning the housemates a takeaway.

But it looks like that will be her last laugh – bookies Paddy Power has odds of 1/150 that Nicky will be evicted, while Gerry, who is also up for the public vote, is 18/1.
