A little while ago I wondered if the BB4 housemates read or were allowed to read books they’d brought into the house. I posted to the BB4 forum and asked this question and only got one response saying they thought so but just hadn’t seen anyone reading this year. My question was answered for me on television last night during the BB4 nightly show when the narrator said something like, ‘Without books and tv in the house the housemates….’. Perhaps the Big Brother team read the forum and answer questions like this in the nightly show or whichever show is appropriate for the question asked. I know last year books were allowed in the house as I remember Chrissie reading books.
