Big Brother housemates set to vote while in the house.

Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott want to cash-in on hit reality TV show Big Brother.

Entertainment reporter Pete Ford told Ross and John the Big Brother contestants, for the first time, will have to vote while in the house, and a number of politicians want to cash in.

Ford said they are looking into the idea of making visits into the house or producing videos to be aired to the contestants in an attempt to reach more than just the “12 or 15” housemates.

“It’s a chance to reach a younger audience who perhaps would have very little interest in what they’ve got to say,” Ford said.

“They do somehow want to get their head on and their message across.”

Meanwhile, Tony Abbott attempted to impress a younger audience this morning by phoning the Kyle and Jackie O show to speak with Katy Perry.

But Mr Abbott landed himself in hot water with the pop songstress after he begged her to come Down Under.

 “When are you coming back? We need you, we want you, when are you coming back?” Mr Abbott said.

Perry replied: “Come on that’s not a political question, let’s talk about gay marriage."

Abbott: “Now you’re interviewing me, Katy."

Perry: “Yeah buddy that’s right, love is equal!”
