Marco Pierre White Jr receives warning from Big Brother for overstepping 'physical boundaries' with female contestant
Big Brother housemate Marco Pierre White Jr has been given a gentle warning about uninvited physical contact.
On Thursday, the heavily tattooed son of chef Marco Pierre White was called to the Diary Room after fellow housemate Laura Carter confessed in a conversation to Andy West that he had "wandering hands".
However, during the conversation, Laura, who has been happily flirting with Marco, insisted that his actions did not make her feel uncomfortable – but Big Brother called him into the diary room for a chat.
"Big Brother wants to talk to you about your behaviour in the house and remind you that it’s important to respect your fellow housemates physical boundaries,” Big Brother told Marco in the diary room.
"That includes uninvited physical contact. Big Brother just wants to make sure that no one is in a situation where they might feel uncomfortable," added Big Brother. While Marco agreed: "That’s the last thing I want to do. I completely agree."
The model's reprimand comes the day after he told housemates that he is engaged. But he claims to be given a "hall pass" - the opportunity to be intimate with someone without consequences - by his fiancee, commodity broker Jessyca Hydleman.
During his flirting session with Laura, Marco tells the aspiring actress: "I just wanna sleep and have a good time on Big Brother."
Speaking about her feelings for Marco, Laura - who claims to have had flings with stars including Justin Bieber, Craig David and Calum Best - confessed: "I’m really weirdly drawn to him. I definitely would f**k him, I’d want him to f**k me really hard."
The show features two houses for the first time. The Others are housed in a secret second house and have been tasked with stirring up trouble for the contestants in the main house.
Housemate Charlie Doherty was informed that her ex-boyfriend Jason Burrill is in the house while on Thursday night's show Jayne Connery was told her estranged friend Chelsea Singh is part of the show.
