Lesley Has Quit The Game

Following in the footsteps of CBB5 housemates Donny Tourette, Ken Russell and Leo Sayer (not to mention numerous others before that), Lesley has now quit the game.

The former recruitment consultant had previously threatened to leave on two occasions, but was advised by Big Brother to 'think it over' on both. However yesterday (Day 10), the 60-year-old visited the Diary Room to once again say that she wanted to go.

"I would like to leave here by bedtime tonight," she told Big Bro, further stating that she had stood by her word to continue for a bit longer. Giving BB an ultimatum, Lesley demanded, "I want to leave within a couple hours".

However, the arrival of Gerry and Seany put the mockers on that; indeed, the fact that Seany ripped her bedclothes off last night may have had something to do with her decision to finally quit?

So, this morning Lesley declared that she didn't want to spend another day in the Big Brother House, and duly left. However, this was not before saying goodbye to her peers, telling them to make the most of their stay and urging Nicky to have more confidence in herself.

Talking to Big Brother in the Diary Room, Lesley said that she was sad to be leaving, but glad she'd had a chance to say goodbye.

When asked by the all-seeing entity why she was feeling sad, Lesley replied, "Well I made, not friendships, never got anywhere like that, but you know I've formed slight bonds with people and they were lovely and gracious". Then, through tears, the Gloucestershire gran stated that she would particularly miss Tracey. She was also fond of new boy Gerry.

About her decision to go, Les said, "My reasons are that I have been here ten days: I have, during that time, contributed and have felt able to do so. I feel that I contributed well, but my strength and energy in that department is running out".

"I enjoyed the challenge and the process... of coping in a situation that was so alien to my nature," said the second person to exit the House so far this series, before thanking Big Bro for the opportunity.

That's the thing though, however much she says she ran out of energy, even taking into account Lesley's age, perhaps she shouldn't have gone in and taken the opportunity away from someone else in the first place... especially as the 60-year-old claimed right at the end that she was a potential Winner. Why be a quitter then?

It takes months and a lot of effort to get on Big Brother, so to just throw it away after a week-or-so is very lame indeed. A former Cambridge Don? Some might say she's an idiot!

In our recent 'Who Do You Want Out 1st?' Poll – which began after Emily's expulsion – Lesley was 5th (out of 11) on the public's Hit List, behind Ziggy, Chanelle, Shabnam and Charley.

So, although it's a shame that she's gone, ultimately Lesley (surname: Brain) won't really be missed.
