Matt, who is 27, told Simon Cowell that he plans on taking a little vacation to the Mediterranean isle of Majorca and visit one of his old school chums Ellsworth Windsorgarden, 28, whom Matt stressed is not gay or even remotely gay.

Becky, as her lesbianite neighbor Stella Pilltower, 37, calls her, blushed and said that it has literally been about seven months since she has had her wissy-pissy touched by a young male.
