Big Brother 2017: Tom Barber's girlfriend set to join the house next week

Big Brother 2017

Big Brother's Tom Barber's girlfriend is set to confront him in the house.

It follows claims that she had DUMPED him, not that he would have any idea.

Big Brother host Emma Willis said on Bit On The Side tonight that Tom's partner Paris was due to appear next week as part of a new shopping task which will involve the housemates' friends and family.

It was reported recently that Tom had been dumped by his girlfriend, at least according to her sister Lateysha Grace.

Former Big Brother housemate Lateysha told MTV News: "Tom is an absolute d**khead, I really don't like him. He needs to have more respect for women as well. He's gone in there with my sister but I see him getting in showers with girls, flirting with girls and it's uncomfortable to watch.

"At the moment I think he's single, he doesn't know yet. My sister's just shocked, she's just watching it and seeing a different person. I feel like he's trying to be somebody he's not."

Meanwhile, appearing on Big Brother's Bit On The Side back on Wednesday night, Lateysha said: “Look, in my opinion, if I had a boyfriend, and he went into the Big Brother house, and he was getting in showers with girls and flirting with girls the way he is, I would be peed off, you know what I mean?”

She added: “It’s horrible for me to watch this as her sister.

"She’s upset and I don’t know what’s going to happen when he’s out of the house. Whether or not she’s going to be in a relationship with him... he’s the last person that should be giving relationship advice, let’s just leave it at that.”


Lateysha, who appeared on Big Brother last year, went on to slam Tom for playing a game.

She said: "He’s just with that clique. He’s just blending in, being nice to everyone so he don’t get them votes – I ain’t buying it."

Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
