Avid Merrion Set To Enter The Big Brother House?
The UK's 'No.1 Big Brother Superfan', Avid Merrion, could
be set to enter the BB house during the forthcoming series.
He spent the whole of last summer desperately trying to sneak
into the Elstree grounds, including dressing-up (badly) as
Davina in a bid to dupe the guards. However, it seems the
neck-braced 'nutter might just get his wish this year!
Hang on, you say... who the hell is Avid Merrion?
Avid is the wacky 'ginger-nut' who appeared in all the advert
breaks during cable channel e4's coverage of Big Brother 3.
As the weeks went on, he progressed from kidnapping BB1 Winner
Craig Phillips, to having Helen Adams, Nasty Nick, Craig and
Bubble all tied-up and held captive in his cupboard.
However don't worry, the four ex-contestants eventually got
fed-up of his, erm, pervy ways and managed to escape right
at the end of the series, but not before beating him up!
Of course Avid isn't a real person, he's an hilarious and
somewhat-disturbing character of comedian Leigh Francis, the
man behind characters such as 'Michael Jackass' in the Channel
4 series 'Bo Selecta!'
Talking to BBO at a recent party, Avid accidentally let slip
that C4 have asked him to make a surprise appearance during
Big Brother 4, along the lines of the planned Keith Chegwin
appearance in BB3. The cult TV presenter was due to become
a celebrity guest for a day but the idea was scrapped in the
However, TV bosses are apparently keen to go ahead this time
with Avid, perhaps something to do with the fact that BBO
staff pleaded with them to put the popular Transylvanian 'celeb
stalker' in the house last year?
In typical Avid style (read: nonsense), the ginger weirdo
confirmed the plans: "I've been asked to go in the house
and of course I've said yes. Only special people are chosen
for this programme... it's like going into space."
About his possible stay in the house, an ever-hopeful Avid
said: "I will have sex with them while they are nobodies,"
elaborating with, "Then, when they leave the house and
become famous, I will sell the story about our night of passion."
It wasn't clear whether he was referring to the girls or the
Apart from promising sex live on TV, Avid, whose catch phrase
is 'You will like me, I am warm', has also promised to show
off his 'cockle shell bay'. And, having seen his outrageous
appearance on the Jonathan Ross show, we don't doubt it!
Big Bro producers are sure to be gutted that the motor-mouthed
superfan has given the game away. However, true to form, Avid
has a worrying plan if they scrap his appearance: "I
will burn the house down", he said matter-of-factly,
before concluding, "That will teach them to mess with
And with that, our reporter ran away. Fast!
Come on you Channel 4 bods, get Avid in the house. You know
it makes (no) sense! We can't wait...
