Last month, Laura and Marco made headlines when they got it on in the ‘BB’ house, after scenes that showed her choking him with his belt and him sucking on her breast in full view of the cameras.
When asked about this by host Emma Willis in Friday’s (22 July) live eviction, a shocked Laura confessed: “I can’t believe Big Brother showed the sex!”
Laura went on to say that her liaison with Marco - who had led her to believe he was in an open relationship, despite his fiancée’s protestations on the outside world at the time - was her only regret from her time in the house.
She added: “[I am] absolutely mortified, I can’t believe that happened. I immediately regretted it. When Marco gave me that attention…it’s the worst thing I’ve ever done.”
In fact, Laura and Marco’s raunchy behaviour could be about to land Channel 5 in some serious trouble, with Ofcom revealing recently that they would be launching an investigation into the sexual scenes.
The scenes in question provoked more than 600 people to complain to the media watchdog, who said in a statement: “We’re investigating whether sexual scenes in this episode of Big Brother exceeded generally accepted standards for its time of broadcast.”
Just eight housemates now remain in the ‘BB’ house, with two more set to be evicted on Sunday (24 July), ahead of next week’s live final.
