Day 5 of Celebrity Big Brother 12 took place on 26th August 2013.
- Housemates began their first weekly shopping task: 'Time is Money.' To pass the task, the celebrities had to accumulate as much 'time' as possible by completing various tasks set for them by Big Brother. Failure to complete said tasks would result in any time earned previous being deducted. During the task, two celebrities had to become 'Clock Watchers' and watch the rest of the house at all times until told otherwise by Big Brother, whilst Louie was designated the role of 'Big Brother Cuckoo.'
