The Big Brother 10 housemates have been getting to grips with their latest task – learning to speak Russian.

On Saturday evening they were given two hours to learn a series of Russian phrases, with guidance from housemate Angel Dasari, and then be tested on them in the Diary Room.

In fact, the Russian rock star looked somewhat surprised by the task, worth two tokens to the house. “He’s joking,” she said as Marcus revealed the details.

“I think I know the right person to do these,” Marcus grinned.

Among the phrases the housemates had to learn were “excuse me young lady, do you know the way to Moscow?” and “I love you, Big Brother.”

In other BB news, it appears that lovelorn Sree has switched his affections to an unlikely housemate – Rodrigo.

Having raised eyebrows by cuddling up to Charlie in bed earlier in the week the Indian student – still getting over his rejection by Noirin – shared a hug with Rodrigo in the garden and even kissed him.

“I’m not happy,” he told the Brazilian.

“No, you are. You are happy” Rodrigo said. “Everyone likes you here. Everyone.”
