Alexandra de-Gale, the housemate dumped unceremoniously out of the Big Brother house last week, was last night interviewed on air by show host Davina McCall, and is actually a really nice person.
Alex, thrown out for intimidating behaviour, bullying and being a gangsta, swapped anecdotes with McCall, and convinced the public that, far from being a gangsta, she is just like everyone else.
Apart, that is, from her language, which can only be said to be "disgusting", so littered is it with expletives and insults. Her mimmicked gangsta persona does her no favours either, and her empty claims that she has "a strong team of mans" unsettled some members of the house so much, that they prompted Channel 4 executives to ask her to "leave by the door on the right" last Thursday.
Speaking to McCall though, Alex said that this was her normal way of talking, and her threats to "kill Rex and maim Mohamad" were taken entirely out of context. She was, she said, a nice person, and "just messin' around".
McCall told viewers later that she had found de-Gale friendly, engaging and approachable, and said she thought that Alex had been "widely misunderstood".
De-Gale, on leaving the studio, told members of the Press:
"Woman didan show me no respect. Now am free to do me business wiv ma crew. Gonna be bloodshed in the Seven Sisters before this one's owver!"
