Big Brother housemate Ashleigh Hughes is, on the face of it, the living embodiment of the Essex stereotype…
A bit thick, a bit orange, fond of alcopops and cider and a fan of holidaying in Eyebeefa.
However, her fellow housemate Luke A reckons it’s all a sham, and in fact, Ashleigh’s not as dumb as she makes out. Furthermore, he thinks Ashleigh has plans to become the next Jade Goody…
Tragic Jade – who died on Mother’s Day in 2009 after losing her fight with cervical cancer – of course shot to fame after having starred in the third series of Big Brother.
Her perceived lack of intelligence became her trademark ‘thing’ and saw her become both the nation’s sweetheart and one of the most hated women in Britain… Read more & comment »
The Daily Star today reports that Big Brother housemate Becky Hannon told the show’s producers in a Diary Room chat that she wants to leave over the Luke A debacle in which he said, “She respects me about as much as she respects her BMI.”
We saw exactly what happened in last night’s highlights show which focused on the friends and family of housemates nominating for them this week. It was in the course of them doing so that Becky’s sister dropped the BMI ‘bombshell’ as the reason why she was nominating Luke A.
Becky of course reacted as Becky does; loudly and OTT, using the word “disgusting” about six hundred times, refusing to give Luke A a chance to explain why he’d said it, and to apologise.
And of course, she yet again pulled the “I’m a 19 year old girl, he’s 31” card, which became old the last few times she used it, and it’s downright tedious now… Read more & comment »
As Big Brother fans will know, yesterday, the housemates’ friends and family did their nominating for them, and the aftermath of one revelation in particular has prompted a tidal wave of unpleasantness to once again strike the house…
That incident was when Becky’s sister nominated Luke A – and Deana – and as to why she was nominating Luke A, she explained that it’s because she’d seen on Channel 5’s BB highlights show a conversation between Luke A and Adam in which Luke said, “She says she respects me, but she respects me about as much as she respects her BMI.”
Luke A immediately apologised for the remark, but after telling him he was “disgusting”, Becky then refused to speak another word to him.
Then in the bathroom while speaking to Scott, she added, “I think it’s flat out disgusting.”
Now, the fact of the matter is, Becky has often – and loudly – claimed that she’s proud of her ‘big’ frame, and often added that she has no desire to diet or change her physical appearance, going the route of Big Is Beautiful… Read more & comment »
That’s right peeps! Following the housemates’ friends and family nominations, Ashleigh, Luke A, Deana and Becky face eviction on Friday!
Who do you want to see go? And remember, there’s loads of things happening this week, including the launch of The White Room task tomorrow (Tuesday) then a special edition of Big Brother on Wednesday night, which focuses on how the new task is affecting everyone.
After that, there’s a live Bit on the Side from the Big Brother garden on Friday – and of course prior to that, a double eviction on Friday!
We’ll be back with a full update on all the reaction in the house soon.

Big Brother housemate Caroline Wharram has yet again angered not only her fellow housemates – and most notably Deana – but also viewers…
To begin with what upset fans, it was a segment in last night’s highlights show when, after the nominations announcement, which of course saw eight of the housemates facing eviction this week, Becky – who along with Scott won’t face eviction this week – said that she thought she should thank Luke A for not nominating her.
She had nominated him, citing her reason being their row a few days ago, and obviously Becky realized that Luke A hadn’t done likewise.
However, Caroline and Conor immediately ruled out any altruism on Luke A’s part in not nominating Becky, and said he was “voting tactically…” Read more & comment »
Nominations result revealed! Here’s what BB’s website has to say…
Drum roll please – and a very deep breath… The nominations are in!
In case you hadn’t already guessed from the above picture, we have a whopping eight housemates up for eviction. That’s right, EIGHT! Adam, Ashleigh, Caroline, Conor, Deana, Luke A, Luke S and Sara to be specific.
Why so many? Well, it’s a little Big Brother twist.. . You see, this week, every housemate who received even one nomination was put up for the public vote. It’s BB’s prerogative to keep them on their toes…
Tune in to Big Brother’s Bit on the Side tonight from 10pm on 5* to see how Adam, Ashleigh, Caroline, Conor, Deana, Luke A, Luke S and Sara react to the news.
Voting is now open!
With only a few more weeks to go, every nomination counts.
Who are you going to vote to save?? Read more & comment »
Yesterday, Day 47, saw not only the Selfless Deeds task but also Becky and Luke A calling a tentative truce on their previous row, while Ashleigh rowed with Luke S over his meat…
No you filthy beast, not that meat, but rather the meat he chose to use to make a chilli con carne. Luke S used steak, but Ashleigh – who’s a self-confessed cook-a-phobe – wanted mince.
Which of course is a subject that’s caused relationships to break up for decades; that old mince or steak debacle is a deal breaker.
However, unsurprisingly, Luke S was not pleased with Ashleigh’s response to the meal he’d made, prompting Conor to tell Ashleigh, “You were being ungrateful. You told him to cook mince for you instead. You were acting like a spoilt brat…” Read more & comment »
As we reported earlier, last night, Luke A proved he’s most definitely more man than mouse by standing up to bully Becky Hannon, who told him, “Don’t you dare call me fake!”
But dare he did, and rightly so, however this morning, Becky predictably played the age card – as she tends to do when she can’t win an argument with an older person in the house, but being 19 doesn’t, in my eyes, excuse her appalling behaviour – and whined that a 31 year old man shouldn’t speak to a 19 year old in the manner that Luke A did.
Funny isn’t it how Becky’s age is never an issue when she wants to gob off at someone? I don’t recall her telling Deana as the pair worked on this week’s shopping task, “Oh sorry Deana, I need to stop calling you ‘slow’ and accusing you of being thick, because I’m only 19…”
However, back to the issue at hand, and after their row last night, Becky’s evidently still smarting from being outwitted on every front, and brought down a peg or three, by Luke A, and she told Caroline… Read more & comment »
Last night, Lauren of course became the seventh housemate to be evicted from the Big Brother house during this series…
Which of course meant that Luke A was saved by the public vote, and that knowledge has transformed him from being a ‘The Meek Will Inherit The Earth, If That’s OK With The Rest Of You’ character into an Anti-Bully Warrior.
And his first target as the all new ABW superhero alter ego was bitchy Becky Hannon, who tried – and failed spectacularly – to intimidate Luke A back into his corner.
But, as per Baby in Dirty Dancing, in full on self righteous “Nobody puts Baby in a corner” mode, Luke A let rip at her, and she of course turned on the water works.
It all began when a jubilant Luke A told fellow smokers Adam and Sara that from now on, he’s not putting up with crap from anybody. And to Sara, he said, “You know Becky’s fake right?” Read more & comment »
Another Friday night, another Big Brother eviction and this evening it was a battle between two fan favourites.
Lauren Carre was up against married transsexual Luke Anderson and earlier today bookies predicted that Lauren would make it through and possibly even go on to win the series later this summer.
However they were wrong and this evening the blonde beauty received the least amount of public votes and was sent home and eliminated from the Channel 5 reality TV show.
