Gerry has confessed to Big Brother newcomer Jonty that he ‘made a mistake’ in nominating him for eviction.
The Greek gallery researcher nominated the eccentric teddy bear fan earlier in the week, saying living with him was like ‘living with a seven-year-old child’.
But on Wednesday night he realised the error of his ways – and told Jonty so. “Maybe I should have looked at my own household,” he said. “I went for the easy option.”
However, Jonty was philosophical about the prospect of eviction so soon after he had entered the house.
“I think the perception is that it would be unfair for any of us to get anywhere near the last night not having been there all those other weeks,” he said.
The 36-year-old faces the public vote this week along with fellow former Halfway Housemates Kara-Louise and Amy. Twins Sam and Amanda are also up for eviction following a twist in the time travel task.
Glamour model Amy is the hot favourite to be booted from the house on Friday.
