This happened as viewers were shown a clip of Hallie and Olivia writing messages on each other’s backs with their fingers.
Big Brother says: “This is Big Brother. Before you entered the house, the Big Brother rules were explained to you. The rules say you can’t try to communicate or write messages in code.”
Big Brother added: “Yesterday that rule was broken by Hallie and Olivia.”
Big Brother then reveals: “Olivia, you said to Hallie, ‘write secret messages on my back’.”
Big Brother says: “Hallie, you wrote Olivia on her back. Olivia, you passed that out loud and said, “Is a gamer.” Later, Hallie, you wrote another message on Olivia’s back while saying the letters ‘N’ and ‘O’ out loud to Olivia.”
The other housemates are shocked at the news of Hallie and Olivia’s secret communication and believe they are referring to Noky.
Big Brother says, “Hallie, get up. Is there anything you would like to say?”
But as Hallie turns to the housemates, Noky interrupts her and says: “To Noky?”
Confused by Noky’s question, Hallie says, “To Noky?”
Hallie then says, “Should I say what was written? I said Zak was a gameplayer and I think Matty nominated me. It wasn’t about Noky.”
Viewers saw Hallie and Olivia ‘cheating’
Viewers took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to express their thoughts after watching Hallie and Olivia share secret messages in Wednesday night’s episode.
One said: “#BigBrotherUK Punish Hallie and Olivia for breaking the rules and put them forward for nomination.”
Another said: “#bbuk #BigBrotherUK. Put Hallie and Olivia up for nomination because they cheated and broke the rules during the nominations!!!!!”
With two angry face emojis, a third tweeted: “Daughter makes an amazing observation. “Olivia and Hallie spell names while pretending to scratch each other’s backs?” Also put this couple on #BigBrotherUK #BBUK”
Viewers will have to tune in to tonight’s episode to see how the housemates digest the news and find out what the consequences will be for the two housemates who broke the rules.
Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
