Jodie: The Davina Interview
As the first post-eviction interview got going, Jodie was
keen to point-out that she was happy to have been kicked-out.
Davina then re-iterated that the main reason Jodie took part
in Celebrity Big Brother 4 was to change the public's perception
of her, before asking if she'd succeeded?
"No, not at all," replied the model, claiming that
she got so much stick during her 9-day stay, that she was
either miserable or defending herself.
"I don't think the true me has been shown," said
Jodie, further claiming that she usually gets on with anyone.
A VT was then shown representing the contradiction of how
Jodie behaves versus the way she is perceived, including examples
of her lewd behaviour and bitching.
In response, Jodie said that there's nothing wrong with a
woman saying she enjoys sex, but it doesn't mean she's promiscuous.
Then, in something of a one-woman 'Good Cop, Bad Cop' routine,
the 38-year-old host informed Jodie that she got an IQ score
of 136 during the science task, which is way above the national
average of 112. The audience applauded.
But, after the apparent sympathy of saying that, Davina got
critical by stating that the other housemates had tried to
give Jodie advice but she hadn't picked-up on it.
However, in response, the evictee stated that her peers had
told her to leave the country, which was not good advice in
her opinion. "The only thing that keeps me going every
day, my friends and my family, I'm not 'gonna leave that,"
Davina then queried whether she hates the fame that comes
with her job, but Jodie said, "No, not the fame, the
abuse". However, this upset her and Jodie struggled to
hold herself together as she wiped away the tears.
As Davina carried-on without offering a hug – probably
for the best to be honest – it was noted that Jodie
sometimes doesn't listen to advice and shuns it immediately.
Jodie's defence was to state that she was shouted-at so much
in the house, that she just switched off. The model re-iterated
that she has no intention of leaving the country, although
that was the advice she was repeatedly given.
After accepting that she did have a few nice chats with certain
people, Jodie said of the group, "There are a few people
in there I definitely want to see again". She did not
When Davina asked if Jodie had learnt anything about herself,
she replied quickly, "That I don't get on with people
that pretend they're not transvestites when they really are
(Pete)," soliciting a laugh from the audience.
She then added, "...Or people that tell me I need to
see a psychiatrist when they do," obviously
meaning Michael Barrymore.
Davina then showed a VT of Jodie's peers criticising her,
basically making it clear that all but Chantelle and Preston
had nominated her. In response, Jodie made a good point, which
was that her peers only ever wanted to discuss negative points.
Giving her opinion of her fellow housemates, Jodie simply
said of George, "Whatever," but she had rather more
to say about Pete. "THE most hideous thing I've ever
met... just hideous," was her opinion of the bulbous-lipped
It was then suggested that some fans like Pete because he's
disarmingly honest, and Davina asked what it's like to be
on the receiving end? "I defy anyone to be in there with
him for 3 weeks and not want to kill themselves or him!"
On Faria, Jodie said that she wasn't sure about her at first,
but grew to like her. "She's a top bird, Faria."
About Dennis, she said, "Dennis said he's had every
woman he's ever wanted, but he's not 'gonna have me".
The glamour girl thought Preston was 'lovely and cute', and
about best pal Chantelle, she simply said, "I will be
seeing her very, very soon".
As the interview drew to a close, Davina posed the rather
tongue-in-cheek question, "Knowing what you know now...
would you do it again?" but Jodie's answer was a predictable:
"Never, not in a million years".
Finally, Davina asked if Jodie had enjoyed any of her time
in the house, but the answer was a stern 'no', apart from
the fact that she'd met Chantelle.
Jodie then begged the public to vote for Chantelle to win,
before her best bits VT was shown, which seemed to contain
more negative footage than fun footage... arguably a good
representation of her time in the house?
