What's In A Name?

Caoimhe was slightly miffed tonight because Big Brother had repeatedly got her name wrong today, not just pronouncing it incorrectly but calling her Shabby by mistake!

The Irish beauty told her peers that the all-seeing entity had apologised for its faux pas, but upon hearing the news an egotistical Shabby pondered: "It must mean that they say my name a lot then?"

The conversation led Govan (pronounced Jo-van) to recall that while he was going through the application process the producers kept mispronouncing his name.

This prompted a pedantic Shabby – real name Keeley – to recall how annoyed she got with the producers for repeatedly calling her by her birth name prior to entering the House, claiming that she pretended not to understand them when they addressed her by it.

Caoimhe had a similar grievance, saying: "I don't know how many times I told them: 'I do not want to be spelt, if I go on this show, the name on my passport; you need to spell it how it's pronounced'".

And just in case you're still unsure how the seemingly random collection of vowels and consonants should be pronounced, it's Kee-va... not Ka-oy-me!
