Big Brother housemate John James Parton has admitted that he regrets not making more time for Shabby Katchadourian whilst she was in the house.
Shabby walked off the show last week after being overwhelmed by her feelings for Caoimhe and a fight with Ife. In a chat with Ben, Mario and Andrew today, Australian hunk John James admitted that he felt a divide in the house isolated many of the group in the early weeks and admitted that he wishes he had gotten to know the 24 year old squatter better.
“Shabby I regret not being friends with her near the beginning,” John James said. “They used to be the bathroom clan. Like Ben said, there was times I didn’t want to go in there ‘cos I felt I was stepping on someone’s toes.”
“There were huge divides before. Materially there was deeper division. It lasted for about three weeks.”
However, Mario claimed that he never felt constrained by a divide or group politics and said that he made time to chat to everyone during the early weeks of the Channel 4 reality TV show.
On current divides between housemates, Andrew then asked:
“Am I thinking the only bad blood is between Caoimhe and Ife?”
Mario laughed and replied: “Not bad blood – alley cats.”
“Girls are always more complicated with each other than we are,” Ben added.
