Ben Slightly Concerned Over Mario Attention

Ben Duncan - Big Brother UK Housemate

Ben had a one-to-one chat with John this afternoon about his relationship with Mario.

As everyone knows, Mario is gay and has been not-so-subtly pursuing Ben from Day 1. However, although he quizzed Ben about his sexuality right at the beginning of the series, the fact that Ben said he's straight hasn't stopped Mario flirting with him continually.

Having told John today that he doesn't have much in common with Mario, he was advised by the Aussie hunk to say something about it. "If you don't fancy him, just tell him," said JJ.

However, ever the gentleman, Ben was concerned that it could come across as arrogance on his part.

After John told the bouffant-haired broadcaster that everyone thought he was bisexual at first, Ben stated that he fancied 1st Evictee Rachael, but would never have presumed she fancied him back; the point being that even if he was gay, Mario shouldn't presume that he likes him in that way.

Ben was also a little concerned about the fact that Mario goes around sticking-up for him and defending his honour. The 30-year-old said he was grateful for the friendship, but thought Mario's behaviour can sometimes be a bit patronising.

So, the message is clear: Ben is very happy to be friends with Mario, but would like him to cool it with the flirty and partner-like behaviour.

He just needs to go and tell the stalker-like former mole now!
