Singer La Toya Jackson told Shameless actress Tina Malone she thought Michelle was ‘madly in love’ with the former member of boyband A1.
Ben told Big Brother he felt no attraction towards Michelle and had no desire to come between her and her boyfriend.
He said rapper Coolio’s teasing of the pair made him feel awkward. “I am absolutely not interested in splitting up someone else’s relationship,” he said. “I’d never do that, and I don’t see Michelle like that, she’s a nice girl, but there isn’t an attraction with Michelle, it’s more like a friendship.”
Earlier in the day, La Toya and Tina discussed the young pair’s behaviour around each other.
La Toya said: “Have you noticed that two people are in love? It’s so blatant. They’re afraid to say anything because of all the cameras.
“She is madly in love with him, more than he is for her. It’s so cute, it’s really cute and I feel so bad, because I feel as if their bodies are fighting each other inside, and they can’t do anything about it.”
The American housemates – La Toya, Coolio and Austin Powers actor Verne Troyer – successfully completed their ‘British buzz’ task, and earned three tokens.
They answered questions about aspects of Britain and British culture after tuition from the British housemates, despite Michelle thinking Ayers Rock was in the UK.
