The contestants paired up with one blindfolded and the other helping them. The roles were reversed after three hours.

During the challenge radio producer Mikey, who chose the pairs and served as an adviser, revealed that he had been “bored” for the last ten years since losing his sight.

And after the task had finished his fellow housemates revealed a new appreciation for Mikey's struggles, with Lisa saying that “it must be very scary”.

In the latest betting cookie addict Kathreya remains the favourite to win the show at 10/11 while Lisa is the rank outsider as an 80/1 shot.
