Big Brother: Josie Gibson is trying to ‘mend’ herself after split from John James Parton
The pair met on Big Brother last summer and lived together until he dumped her last month. JJ spent some time licking his wounds in Australia, before returning to the UK and his new girlfriend, however Josie claims she needs to sort herself out before she’ll be back on the market.
Speaking on Loose Women yesterday, the reality TV star admitted that she has to ‘mend’ herself, before she can properly move on.
I think men and women are quite different because there is no way I could let myself into another relationship now.
I think it’s very important to mend yourself before you go into something else.
So how exactly is Josie ‘mending’ herself? Unsurprisingly, it involves lots of drinking and wild nights out. She told Kate Thornton:
I’m going out and having a few drinks with the girls. I’ve got about ten self help books that I’m reading at the moment. I’m trying to mend myself.
And while Josie is moving on, she does admit that it’s hard not to be angry with John, after he let her down so badly. She added:
The hardest thing is trying to be dignified about it, when really I am very bitter.
He’s turned out to be the most manipulative, calculating guy ever.
