18 year-old Ashleigh Coyle topped a viewer poll on the Big Brother app yesterday when the public were asked who they would like to see have the power next, and as a result Ashleigh will be taking control of the house this week.

Last night, Big Brother interrupted the group’s party last night to reveal to the housemates that the power had returned, but they did not reveal who had the power.

“Big Brother has an important announcement,” the group were told. “The power has returned. This time, there will be nowhere to hide and no escape. It will be more powerful than ever before. Housemates, get ready.”

“Somebody must be watching us,” Ashleigh suggested, presumably before knowing that she would be the one with the power

Big Brother continues tonight at 10pm on Channel 5.
