Lesley Chats To Dermot O'Leary
Lesley quit the game yesterday morning and was chatting to
Dermot on BBLB this afternoon (Sunday) about her decision.
When asked by the Host why she left after going through such
a lengthy audition process, Lesley replied, "It's a miracle
I lasted 10 days! (she left on Day 11)".
She then stated that as soon as she clapped eyes on the Twins
she could have left there and then. About Amanda and Sam,
Lesley humorously likened them to a pair of toys in her mental
Expanding on what she meant, the 60-year-old said that if
she started feeling really down, instead of going nuts, she
would 'take the twins out and play with them', washing their
hair or whatever.
About the fact that she went-in for Big Brother even though
she doesn't fit the usual contestant profile, Lesley put it
down to curiosity and said that she would have to 'reign that
in' in future.
The BB8 quitter revealed that she'd watched Big Brother before
and did know what to expect to a certain extent. "It
lived down to my expectations," sniped the former
Cambridge Don, before saying she was most disappointed that
her peers didn't want to show-off their talents.
Lesley called it a 'unique experience' being in the presence
of so many girly girls, and when shown a VT of her being maternal,
Les said dismissively, "Anybody who knows me, and I draw
upon my children here, would deny that (I'm motherly)".
This got a laugh from the Host and studio audience.
On the subject of which former housemates she was fond of,
Lesley had good things to say about Tracey, but when Dermot
asked if there was anyone else, she replied with a long pause...
basically the answer was no, although she stated that Carole
was a marvellous person.
About the second-oldest (now the oldest) housemate, Les was
disappointed that Carole had taken the role of resident skivvy,
saying that she'd tried to get the 53-year-old to express
her interesting and strong views.
Getting another jibe in for the majority of her former peers,
Lesley said that it would have been impossible to engage with
them in a meaningful way if she'd stayed. Oooh, bitchy!
On the subject of new arrival Gerry, Les admitted that she
would have got on well with him because he can talk intellectual,
girly and everything in-between. She wasn't so keen on Seany
thought, stating that his whipping her bedclothes off stunt
just confirmed that she wanted to go.
When asked by Dermot who she thought should win
and who would win, Les replied, "If there's
any justice in the world, Tracey should win". About who
will win, she half-jokingly hinted that it could have been
her, and then stuck with Tracey.
Towards the end of the interview, Lesley said that the experience
just confirmed what she suspected about herself and added,
"I did enjoy it. It was a very good experience".
Lastly, after being shown a VT of her best bits, Les summed-up
her thoughts by saying, "They're lovely people; they're
And that was that. Twelve housemates remain in the game,
but there are doubtless a few more to come.
