In the bedroom Josie tells Steve she has just upset Caoimhe. “I hate making people feel really upset” she says. “Well she should have thought of that before she was messing around with Shabby too” says Steve who tells her it is better to get things aired. Josie says she shouldn’t have said anything because she has got a boyfriend “I know she’s a nervous wreck in here and I’ve just wrecked her head even more.”

Caoimhe is in the Diary Room telling Big Brother that she wants to leave. “I feel crazy. I need to go, I’m Billy no mates in here and I’m spending more and more time on my own. I need to leave and see my family, I’m too embarrassed to be here any longer.”

Caoimhe asks Rachel and Keeley if she can talk to them and tells them that she feels really embarrassed. She tells them Josie really fancies John James and thinks that she has been flirting with him.

Josie is in the Diary Room. She too tell Big Brother she would like to leave. “I know this is going to sound ungrateful but I wanna go now, I’m so sorry.” She tells Big Brother that she told Caoimhe that she felt that she made a beeline for John James jumping all over him. “I thought she knew what she was doing but she say’s she didn’t. Poor John James is walking around like a headless chicken not knowing what is going on.”

Josie adds: “Sometimes I feel like an ostrich, do you know what I mean?” Josie says she wished she left it and she wants to be Caoimhe’s mate again. She tells Big Brother that the situation doesn’t seem that bad now she has got it off her chest and thanks Big Brother.

John James asks Rachel if Ben is the type of person she would be attracted to on the outside. She tells him that she normally gores for “knob heads.” Rachel says to John James “I don’t get the vibe that he likes girls to be honest.” She says she likes someone if they have a talent and her imagination ran away with her watching Ben play the keyboard last night. She says she really likes him in the house even though he is not her type.
