This evening, viewers watched as Alex has been issued a task the Tree of Temptation to break the snowman in the garden.
If it was done as such, it could save time of training with his punchbag – but he was not able to tell his housemates the truth.
Initially, they were all confused when they saw Alex hit the snowman for the parts, but assumed that it was part of a challenge.
Later, Alex was treated to a little bit of time with his punchbag in a secret room, but was left drenched in sweat after the workout.
It was recalled that he would not be able to tell his housemates what he had to do, so created a fumbling lie about being “punished” for destroying the snowman.
His disbelief housemates probed him and he said that he was sweaty because he had been forced to sing and do push-ups as punishment.
Watch the episode back, Rylan tweeted to cry of laugh emoticons: “@AlexReid is a bad liar #bbuk. ”
“Bad liars are a lot more fun to watch though! #BBUK xxx, ” one fan responded.
Another wrote: “it went from dancing non-stop push ups in about 10 seconds ♀️ #BBUK xxx. ”
