Biggie has given Nigerian housemate Uti, two options with regards to attending his father's burial.
One, Uti may leave Big Brother All Star house immediately until the funeral. This would entail an absence of 2 to 3 weeks as no funeral arrangements are in place yet. In this case Uti may not return to the game.
Two, He may opt to attend the funeral only, hence he will be away from the house for 3 to 4 days. In this instance he will be accompanied by 2 chaperones, a senior member of the production team and a Nigerian who is conversant with the language of Uti’s family.
This monitoring arrangement would be in place to ensure no communication with the outside world on any information which may impact on the contestant’s behaviour in the Big Brother series. Should this monitoring be judged to be effective, Big Brother would allow Uti back into the game on terms and conditions prescribed by Big Brother.
Uti and the family were given 24 hours to seriously think through the two options. They later opted for Uti and his family chose the second option - that is to leave the house for the actual funeral
