BB house in harmony
Music truly is the food of love as the Big Brother House united for a singalong last night.

After the trauma of nominations and the discord that followed, the housemates were feeling the love as dusk settled yesterday.
Makosi promised that now her mission to be unpopular was over, she would try and re-unite the factions she thinks she created.
And last night the 'lucky' 13 to make it through the selection process gathered for a singalong - with their very own Zimbabwe-born songstress leading the way.
She belted out a version of Mariah Carey's The Greatest Love of All, to a rapturous reception - only to have it turned into a duet halfway through by buxom Londoner Saskia.
And while 24 hours ago this might have been a cause for friction, last night it turned into a love-in. "You sound better," Makosi squealed, with Saskia then repaying the compliment and insisting Makosi was by far the better singer.
The true showstopper was Craig, however, whose version of Britney's Hit Me Baby One More Time - while dressed in full schoolgirl regalia - had Derek and Roberto collapsed in fits of laughter.
The unity continued after the singing stopped, as the housemates discussed their newfound 'fame'.
Anthony mused: "It will be [scary]. You won't be able to do normal s*** without people f****** noticing."
Saskia added: "I know we are thinking 'yeah wicked' but it will be a little bit scary, but I'll still love it."
After the others headed to bed, Maxwell, Anthony and Science stayed up discussing their women-folk.
"Saskia is getting better by the f****** minute" exclaimed Maxwell.
They decided that Makosi was beautiful but not for them, Sam they can take or leave, while Vanessa was second only to Saskia in the boys' estimations.
But there were a couple of things that meant Saskia was unlikely to be challenged by the rest.
"I've never seen that before, when someone's head is smaller than their t***," Maxwell enthused - before suggesting a wet T-shirt competition.
