Shabby: I'm a lovestruck fool

Big Brother quitter Shabby declared herself “a massive embarrassment” today for showing her emotions with unrequited love interest Caoimhe.

Big Brother quitter Shabby declared herself “a massive embarrassment” today for showing her emotions with unrequited love interest Caoimhe.

The lesbian squatter, who walked out of the show yesterday after escaping eviction three days earlier, admitted she was mad at herself for losing her cool when it came to matters of the heart.

“I’m p***** off at myself. I’m a massive embarrassment to myself, to be honest with you. I’m not so cool, I’m a lovestruck fool,” she said this morning.

“But it was how it was, and it is how it is, and I had to go with my feelings.”

Shabby – whose real name is Keeley – was open about her feelings towards the Irish student, in spite of Caoimhe insisting that she has a boyfriend.

The 24-year-old was hurt when she heard her describing how Shabby made her feel “uncomfortable” to the other housemates behind her back – while massaging and flirting with her when they were on their own.

“I was shocked about that. That’s not who I think she is really. I don’t know what she thinks to be honest,” she said.

Despite everything, Shabby said she was still waiting for Caoimhe.

“I’m hanging for Caoimhe right now. I’d like to wait to speak to her when she comes out. I got to see what she said about me when I wasn’t around, and it’s a difficult one,” she admitted.

She added: “I hoped I could have turned her. I just wanted to really say to her ’I’m falling in love with you, this is serious s***. And if you really don’t feel the same, I’d rather that you just tell me’.”
