Big Brother 'contestant' Pauline made her entry into the House last night, with some of the current housemates frothing at the gills over her stunning good looks.
Menfolk Ziggy and Liam had already admitted they were "gagging for it", and had speculated on all things imaginable, including where Pauline comes from.
'Pauline' is in fact an actress, Thaila from Swindon, and has about the worst Australian accent anybody has ever heard. It's been sufficient, though, to bamboozle the dreary occupants of the House, who busily buzzed around her firing various inane questions like Carole the cleaning lady's :
"Have you eaten anything?"
The prank heralds the start of 'Fake Week' on the show, when a housemate will be evicted, and then returned to the House after the other housemates have witnessed the post-eviction interview on the giant screen.
It's so interesting, isn't it? I don't know where these startlingly brilliant and innovative ideas spring from.
Other 'fake' aspects include fake Australian meals, with crocodlie, kangaroo, conger eel and koala on the menu, and clothing such as hats with corks hanging from them - just like most Australian people wear!
WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH!
