Fans of Celebrity Big Brother will know that housemate Lee Ryan – who is of course a member of boy band Blue – has been branded a womaniser and a “player” after being seen to be romancing both Jasmine Waltz and Casey Batchelor.
And according to The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Pope, who is CBB housemate Sam Faiers’ co-star, his bed hopping antics in the house make him “a massive t**t!”
Of Lee – who’s been in tears several times over how he’s “being perceived” by CBB viewers – Lauren told the Daily Mirror, “Lee Ryan is a massive t**t and everything I despise in a man.”
She added, “[He’s] selfish, egotistical, and one that obviously has zero respect for women.
“As someone who’s had more than their fair share of relationships play out on national TV, I really do feel Casey’s pain.
“Having to go through that without everyone watching is hard enough.”
Adding that she thinks Lee is even more despicable for “the snivelling victim persona he’s playing now,” Lauren went on to say that she’s glad Sam’s in the house to provide moral support to the apparently jilted Casey.
She said, “I’m really pleased Sam is doing so well in there, and she’s being really supportive and offering some very valuable advice.
“Plus, she got the wine in for Casey, which is always a good thing!”
What do you think of this whole Casey, Lee, Jasmine ‘love’ triangle?
Personally, I think it’s entirely for the cameras and there’s absolutely no real feeling between any of them at all.
I felt that was validated during last night’s eviction show when Casey said of Lee, “I fell for him.”
She’d known him about 24 hours at the time she purportedly “fell” for him!
And if reports that both Casey and Jasmine have indulged in intimacy with Lee – someone they’d known for only days – are true, then they were evidently as ‘up for it’ as he was, so to then accuse him of being a ‘player’ is somewhat hypocritical surely?
What say you?
