Bookies slash odds on Big Brother romp

Flirting and massages sent pulses racing in the Big Brother house today as bookies slashed the odds on the chances of a “bonk” between contestants.

Flirting and massages sent pulses racing in the Big Brother house today as bookies slashed the odds on the chances of a “bonk” between contestants.

Maxwell, 24, bonded with bikini-clad Sam over the washing up and she told him: “You’d be good in bed.”

“Well, you’ve seen me in the shower,” he replied.

Sam, 23, promised him a massage – and earlier clashed with Makosi when she tried to do the same for Italian housemate Roberto.

The two women squabbled over the 32-year-old teacher when he complained that his back hurt and Makosi offered to rub some oil into it.

But Sam jumped in first, saying: “I’ll give you a massage Roberto. I’m good.”

Zimbabwean-born Makosi, 24, thought Sam was questioning her own skills. But Roberto was delighted by the fuss, crying: “I love this place.”

Ladbrokes spokesman Warren Lush focused on 19-year-old Lesley as the source of love action in the house.

The teenage sales girl from Huddersfield arrived on Friday night wearing a tight-fitting nurse outfit.

Mr Lush said: “The odds on a Big Brother bonk have been slashed from 5/2 to evens. With Lesley in the house a romp has to be a 50/50 chance.”

Meanwhile, the housemates’ latest task led to harsh words from Londoner Maxwell, who accused Lesley of “oozing with jealousy” towards Sam.

The 13 contestants had been asked to don baseball caps and bandanas to take part in an MC battle.

Their efforts met with approval from Big Brother and they were rewarded with a witch-themed birthday party in honour of Irish witch Mary, who is 31 today.

But Lesley confronted Maxwell when he used the opportunity to describe his first impressions of her and Sam.

Earlier on Maxwell, Anthony, and Vanessa discussed whether they were prepared to have sex while in the house, with the first two declaring that they would.

Maxwell bragged that that he would “go like a train for an hour and a half” in full view given the chance, only for Anthony, a 23-year-old Seventies dancer, to claim he too could go that distance.

Vanessa, 19, left them guessing as she said: “Maybe… you’ll have to find out for yourself.”

In another raunchy chat the housemates discussed oral sex, with Science, a 22-year-old from Leeds, saying he wanted nothing to do with it.

Maxwell urged him to try it, while Saskia, 23, and Roberto said it was “more intimate”. Science – real name Kieron Harvey – was not to be moved however. “Banging’s more intimate,” he insisted.

Meanwhile Roberto’s nail varnish sparked a discussion about vanity but he insisted he had no problem with his image.

Meanwhile it emerged today that contestant Derek Laud, who has worked as a Tory speech writer, is acquainted with Camilla Parker-Bowles.

The 40-year-old, who became the first and only black master of foxhounds in 1999, is believed to have got to know Camilla thanks to their shared love of hunting.

Ladbrokes today said Roberto remained 5/1 favourite to win Big Brother but odds on Mary and Kemal, 19, have both been slashed.

Seven men and six women have entered the transparent house to compete for fame and cash in the show broadcast on Channel 4.
