Big Brother 2012: Ashleigh, Scott warned over Deana jibes


Big Brother has issued both Ashleigh and Scott warnings after comments they made about Deana.

The pair were discussing the former Miss India after Ashleigh admitted she was getting on "last nerve".

Ashleigh was at the sofas talking to housemates about Deana saying: “She’s irritating me now,” and told housemates she had given Deana “So many chances.”

Scott, Becky and Conor listened as Ashleigh refers to Deana being like “a lost zombie.”

Scott said that Deana is “in her own little bubble and Ashleigh commented: “She’s definitely 100 percent doing it for the cameras now.”

Ashleigh did her impression of Deana for her housemates and they all laughed. Ashleigh referred to an incident when Deana had milk around her mouth while eating cereal. She said that when she mentioned it to Deana, Deana wiped her mouth with her hand. She told them that instead of using a spoon, Deana then used her hands to pick up her cereal. “Do you know what, they used to do that in my dad’s takeaway, my dad owned and Indian takeaway and they used to eat everything with their hands?”

“I think it’s the culture,” Scott told her. “I just wanted to give her the spoon,” giggled Ashleigh.

Scott was later called to the diary room. Big Brother told him: “Before you entered the Big Brother house you were reminded of the rules regarding unacceptable language and behaviour.

"You were told that Big Brother will intervene and take appropriate action if housemates behave in a way that Big Brother considers to be unacceptable. Earlier today at 4:46pm you had the following conversation with Ashleigh.”

Big Brother relayed the conversation as Scott listened. “Big Brother believes that your use of language in this conversation could be seen as stereotyping and therefore potentially offensive. Do you understand?” “Ooops, I’m sorry,” Scott replied.

“Big Brother has no option other than to issue you with a formal warning; if you use this type of language again we may have to consider removing you from the Big Brother house. Do you understand Scott?”

He replied: “Now that I hear it back it sounds really bad, that’s really horrible cos I do actually like Deana and I wouldn’t want to be horrible like, I’m sorry for getting carried away and talking about someone especially like that, I’m really sorry about that.” Scott left the diary room.

Big Brother then called Ashleigh to the diary room. “Before you entered the Big Brother house you were reminded of the rules regarding unacceptable language and behaviour. Big Brother would like to remind you of what bullying can consist of, “Yeah, yeah I know.”

Big Brother continued: “It can include factions developing, tensions, arguments and ostracising of individuals. Examples of bullying could be excluding people ridiculing or humiliating people, name calling, sarcasm and rumour spreading.”

“I am sorry, it’s not very nice,” said Ashleigh. Ashleigh looked remorseful and explained: “I didn’t mean to make people feel ostracised, but I understand my actions and I’m really sorry. I am really sorry.”
