Charlie Faces The Boot
No, the title of this article has nothing to do with the
result of the Third Round of nominations, as they don't take
place until Wednesday this week. Rather, it refers to the
fact that Charlie Drummond's bosses are thinking of giving
him the sack.
For the 22-year-old apparently forgot to mention to his employer
that he was intending to go on a national television show
for 13-weeks. Oops!
Big Brother contestants often take a long leave or even give-up
their jobs in-order to appear on the show, but Charlie is
said to have told his boss at the Newcastle Job Centre that
he would be going away for just a week!
The first his angry manager learned of the customer service
advisor's lie, was when she tuned-in to the Big Brother 10
Launch show and saw her employee Charlie bouncing-in. A source
close to Charlie's boss told the Daily Star newspaper: "She
couldn’t believe it when she saw him on the telly. It
was decided he had to go”.
Apparently Charlie spent a long time on the dole himself
before nabbing the job, and a former boyfriend claims that
he only sought employment because he thought it would help
his Big Brother application.
Commenting on Charlie's unauthorised absence, a spokesperson
for the Department for Work and Pensions said: “Generally,
unauthorised absence from work is a disciplinary offence for
which a range of penalties apply, including dismissal".
So, although Charlie is currently the second-favourite to
win as far as the bookies are concerned (Freddie is the favourite),
the energetic Geordie could get the boot twice during
the coming months.
