So the two most interesting, and rather Dickensian, characters in the house are up for eviction. I feel most sorry for Pip, AKA Halfwit. Nominated for not hating Angel, which put the nail in his coffin from influential Lisa.
Angel will be the one to go I think. Part Fagin, part Artful Dodger, she made the fatal error of falling in love with Little Miss Perfect and making public her disappointment that Noirin can and will eat cake. Clearly no-one in the house (especially ‘Angel obviously really fancies me’ Halfwit) has cottoned on to where this came from, ie Angel’s monumental crush on Noirin. Haven’t we all said the most stupid thing possible to the person we fancy? And much as I loathe our national sport of hypocritical bullying over women and weight, Angel’s misjudged comments didn’t offend me. She’s obviously got such huge issues about bodies in general including her own, it seemed more weird than offensive. And Noirin has not got a fragile ego, she admitted herself before she came in that she “gets hit on fifty times a night”. She’ll cope. But Angel won’t be allowed to get away with calling Noirin a pregnant-looking lard arse, which is a shame because I would so love to see Marcus fulfilling his promise to put his dick through the mangle if she doesn’t. Though in fairness, I like how Marcus behaved with both Halfwit and Angel after the nominations were announced. I’m beginning to wonder if Marcus might drop the unconvincing ‘cool’ act and develop into less of an arse himself. He has the makings of a better man.
The best thing was the background male hair salon activity- Charlie’s follicular transformation of Sree into a man with a ginger fox on his head. It looks like a Ken Dodd tickle stick. Charlie could not have better avenged Sree’s nasty attempt at a faux power play seduction of him a few days ago, but being Charlie, he wasn’t even aiming for that, which makes it even better.
