Black Comedian Comments On Aisleyne's Lingo
Junior Simpson appeared on Thursday night's BBLB show to
comment on the way Aisleyne talks, a subject that has provoked
lots of discussion amongst BB fans.
Referring to her regular use of phrases like 'You get me?',
the black comedian said, "I come from a predominantly
black family... and I have yet to hear the adults in that

at one point.
But in a humorous rant the enthusastic comedian said about
Ash's home town, "There's no ghetto in Regents Park....
they don't even a kebab shop!"
Aisleyne actually demonstrated how ridiculous her lingo was
when she tried to abstain from using it, and instead put the
correct words in-place of her urban patter.
Instead of saying 'innit' at the end of a sentence, she added
'isn't it', the literal replacement for the words in English.
