Now we’re into the 17th series, you can basically set your watch to when the ‘Big Brother’ housemates are going to start flirting, and what do you know? Mid-afternoon on day two, it’s showmance o’clock.
In Thursday night’s (9 June) episode, Laura Carter is seen growing closer to Marco Pierre White Jr, who has already told the housemates his fiancée has given him a “hall pass” to cheat while he’s on ‘BB’.
After the two share a moment together in the pod, Laura decides he’s going to be her new bed partner, to which he says: “I just wanna sleep and have a good time on ‘Big Brother’.”
Later, alone in the Diary Room, Laura confides in Big Brother: “I’m really weirdly drawn to him. I definitely would fuck him, I’d want him to fuck me really hard.”
And there you have it, folks. We’re not sure what else we could possibly add to that poetry in motion.
In what we’re sure is a pure coincidence and nothing more, Laura’s declaration that she’d want Marco to “fuck her really hard” comes less than 24 hours after discovering that she was the first housemate put up for eviction.
What Laura doesn’t know, though, is that she was chosen by the ‘others’, who decided to pick her to target when she named herself the “sexiest” housemate on launch night.
Time will tell whether Laura and Marco make it into the ‘BB’ couples hall of fame (though the fact they're currently the least popular housemates, according to bookies, doesn't bode well), but if they do, they'll be joining this motley crew.
