46272 1 - Emotional housemates get home letters

Housemates received letters from home yesterday.

The emotional Angels wept as they were read kind messages from home by the Hell housemates, who had to find the letters in a pile of empty envelopes.

But the unfortunate mail sorters soon got their turn when Head of House Rachel forfeited her own letter so they could read theirs.

She said: "There's no way I could stay in here read that and then walk out that door and not say anything."

Lisa - who tried to escape the house by breaking down a fire exit door at the weekend - broke down in tears when a note from boyfriend and former housemate Mario was read out.

It said: "I'm missing you lots and lots and I'm really proud of you."

Rex's dad wrote: "You are a very impressive young man. Hurry home, but not too fast."

Stuart could not hold back the tears when a letter from his daughter Mia told him how much she missed him while Mo listened to a letter from his brother.

Sara and Darnel received kind words from friends while the others sat listening attentively to their post.
