Titan the Robot gave David a personal message from his wife
today, on the day of his 18th Wedding Anniversary.
The intimidating metallic figure woke the group by tapping
on the bedroom window, but when they all gathered in the lounge,
it suddenly started playing a ringing phone sound.
Then, reminiscent of the fictional Terminator T-1000 robot's
ability to mimic its foe, Titan suddenly started speaking
in Dave's wife's voice.
"Hey baby; it's Donna, the wife. I just wanna' say Happy
Anniversary. I love you, I miss you, I can't wait to see you,"
went the message.
"You know we normally have a curry to celebrate? Well
guess what? I've arranged with Big Brobot for you to have
a steaming vindaloo with him tonight. Love you lots, see you
As the message played, Dad-of-four Dave just bowed his head
to hide any emotion, Ife put her hand over her mouth and Nathan
and Caoimhe gave a solitary clap of approval as someone else
Donna's message ended with a few kisses, and his peers either
patted Dave on the back or hugged him afterwards. The Christian
preacher, who has recently spoken about missing his family,
subsequently had a little blub.
Later-on in the evening, the 39-year-old visited the Diary
Room for his celebratory Indian meal and a chat with Big Brother
about how he met his better half.
