Shabby Goes Into Meltdown Over Big Bro's 'Hat' Deal

Shabby Katchadourian - Big Brother UK Housemate

Shabby caused a massive fuss and threatened to quit today, when Big Brother asked the housemates to trade some of their personal items for ciggies.

Ife visited the Diary Room this morning to plead for some fags, and was offered an amnesty deal whereby the housemates – including non-smokers – would hand-over personal items in return for cigs/ tobacco.

Among the items requested by Big Bro were Ife's woolly hat, Corin's eyebrow pencil, Nathan's shorts, Caoimhe's and John's hooded tops, one of Josie's dresses and Shabby's black hat. But the last item on that list caused controversy, and then some.

For Shabby was adamant that she wouldn't give-up the headgear, telling her peers: "I'm, sorry, I am not giving them this hat," explaining that it belonged to her late Grandfather. "This hat is my look, this hat is me," she added.

However, this caused friction within the group, with some housemates questioning why they should give-up items when they don't even smoke, if smoker Shabby wasn't prepared to.

And when Sunshine offered to hand-over a photograph of her late Mum in a bid to try and match the sentimental value of the hat, Shabby just spat: "That doesn’t make me feel better, that makes me feel worse".

A furious Shabby also snapped at Caoimhe for suggesting that her Mum would be okay with it if she handed-over the item in question.

The gobby squatter then went into the wicker snug to be on her own, but soon got upset and went into meltdown, throwing the cushions around violently and smashing her fists down in rage. “Take it then! Just take it!” she shouted when Josie came in for a chat.

Later, after things had calmed down, Shabby threatened to quit. At the time, she didn't even know that she'd become a nominee again, so it remains to be seen if she carries-out her threat.
