Big Brother 2010: Ben threatens to leave over John James bullying

Big Brother’s Ben Duncan has told his fellow housemates that he may leave the reality TV show, if John James doesn’t stop picking on him.

The 30 year old toff rowed with the Australian hunk, after John accused him of trying to speak to Ife during the save and replace task, in the hopes that she wouldn’t nominate him.

John James said:

“I just picked up on something and I know David did too, it was like there was a fear came over you and you were scared you were going to be up for eviction. And then we saw you chatting to Ife.

“If you stay in here it should be because of what people have decided, not because you’ve made a last five-minute dash at her.”

Venting later to David and Josie, Ben claimed that John James constantly hassles him and has some sort of vendetta against him, adding that if it doesn’t stop he will be forced to leave.

He said:

“I don’t deserve to have what he does, following me around and haranguing me. If he continues it then I will leave.

“I’m not worried about leaving, because I’ve got things to go back to. What’s he got to look forward to? A plane trip back to Melbourne, that’s it. I’m sorry if that’s harsh, but it’s true.”

“He’s doing my head in, he kept me awake last night talking and shouting in here, then he’s following me around and accusing me of playing a game or whatever. I can’t take it anymore, he’s doing my f**king head in.

“Why is he so interested in these things? Why doesn’t he talk about politics in the real world or sport if he’s interested in that? It’s always got to be about people’s psychological inner motivations, it’s ill.

“We’re in a fake TV wonderland, and he’s treating it like it’s some moral battle of biblical proportions. It’s pathetic.”
