Another chilli question

Here is a photo of a couple of my chilli plants next to a tomato plant. They are from the free seeds from the magazine. 

Is it time to move them to a (cheap zip up plastic) cold frame yet? 

Also should I move them into bigger 20cm pots now?

    Still a bit too chilly at night for them.
    They'd be good outside in the day though - it'll strengthen them up and they'll get more light.
    Don't repot until the're are roots coming out of the bottom.
    They don't like temps at any time below about 12c - they look about the same stage as some Hot Wax chillies I'm growing this year - alongside the usual Jalapeno that get much taller

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
