Big Brother star John James Parton has claimed that cameramen from the show have apologised to him for how his scenes with Rachael White were edited.
John was seen blasting the Beyonce lookalike during a steamy massage task. The Australian hunk insulted her and insinuated that she may accept money for sexual favours. However, he has now claimed that he didn’t start the row between the pair and that the public would have seen a different side to him, if they had been allowed to watch the whole task.
He told Now:
‘I didn’t start the argument in the massage room with Rachael but that doesn’t change the way I behaved.
‘I know it looks like I went in there and pounced on Rachael, but that’s not what happened at all. But you can’t go on a show like that and expect everything to go your way. They don’t have 20 minutes to devote to one scene.’
‘Some of the cameramen who filmed the massage scene with Rachael and the row with Corin over her make-up actually came up and apologised at the wrap party.’
‘If the full segment had been shown it would have been a completely different story. It was good to hear them say that.’
Parton also revealed that he apologised to Rachael for his comments, after the live final on Channel 4.
‘It’s all sorted now,’ he said.
‘I didn’t want to speak to her before we went out on stage on final night because I didin’t want it to look like I was doing it to make myself look good when Davina interviewed me.
‘I wanted her to know I was legit so I pulled her aside afterwards at the bar.
‘I won’t apologise unless I mean it. She was alright about it so it’s all sorted now and we can just move on.’
