Shopping List Sparks Friction
Day 4 has seen the most friction to date, as a debate-cum-slanging
match ensued when the group gathered together to draw up a
Pete started by having a pop at Jodie when she boasted about
the revenge she'd written about in her book. So, she quickly
retaliated, criticising his wearing of a fur coat.
The pair proceeded to bicker like kids, with Jodie accusing
Pete of enjoying the opportunity to upset her –- not
far from the truth from what we can tell.
Pete suggested that his alleged gorilla-fur coat was an antique
and had probably been around for 50 years, but Jodie insisted,
"The problem is that an animal was killed for you to
parade around in".
Their heated exchange continued, with Jodie eventually claiming
that the killing of all animals is murder. This prompted George
to get involved, saying, "So we're all murderers if we
eat meat, chicken etc?"
In response, an increasingly flustered Jodie stated that
when she goes into a butchers shop, all she sees is dead bodies.
But flippant Pete just came back with, "Why are you even
going into a butchers?"
With the argumentative singer having effectively accused
Jodie of not being able to handle it when people disagree
with her, Rula interrupted in a bid to complete the shopping
However, that just gave Pete another opportunity to wind
Jodie up with his comment, "Get the bananas. The gorilla
(coat) can eat the bananas!"
Traci then asked if it would make any difference if an animal

on to rats, with George challenging Jodie's view that we shouldn't
The rebel MP then went off on one about how Jodie hadn't
mentioned low-paid sweat shops, but when Jodie tried to diss
fox hunting, George stated that he was actually anti-hunting
because it's done for fun, not survival.
Rula then got involved by talking about the testing of cosmetics
on animals, but George said that he would rather make-up be
tested on animals than risk it harming his daughter; a controversial
Next to 'put their five eggs in' was Dennis, who after having
listened to Jodie waffle-on about all the charities she supports
and what she does with her money, said, "Just give it
ALL to charity".
Michael, who'd remained quiet throughout the debate, eventually
got involved by saying, "We've got enough problems in
the world... there's people starving, (so) let's try and sort
the human race out and get on with each other".
But even those sensible words didn't look like ending the
debate, so Big Brother announced that the group was rapidly
running out of time to complete their shopping list.
And the final score for this rather one-sided slanging match?
Jodie: 0, Virtually Everyone Else: 1.
