Katie Hopkins might come across as bolshie, outspoken and “a big old bruiser” (her words, not ours), but it looks like Celebrity Big Brother 2015 may have succeeded in bringing out her softer side.
Who would’ve known, eh?
Katie actually did a bit of a Perez Hilton during last night’s show, retreating to the Diary Room to let out her emotions and have a little cry about becoming a finalist.
Whoever ‘plays’ CBB in that room must need a good holiday after this series. Seriously.
The resident loudmouth, who’s riled some housemates with her outspoken and argumentative (some may say) behaviour, didn’t want her fellow celebs to see her more vulnerable side, admitting to the Diary Room that she really finds it hard to take a compliment.
The 39-year-old struggled to hold back the tears as she told BB that she was finding it “awkward” to come to terms with the idea of being an actual finalist, although she wasn’t ungrateful for the public’s votes.
So THIS is the Katie we see when she’s not stirring the pot? It’s kind of nice, we have to admit.
Besides the crying, obviously. Because crying is never fun. ANYWAY.
She revealed: “I haven’t shared this pyjama clad person before because it’s uncomfortable.
“I’m better being a big old bruiser. I’m not very good at sharing the softer side of me.
“If people are nice to me, I don’t know how to deal with that because then I’m not tough Katie, and then perhaps I can’t deal with all the stuff I need to deal with properly. It’s pathetic, really pathetic.
“Being told I’m liked is really hard because that’s not something I do.
“I walked in here as the most hated candidate ever to walk into a Big Brother House and perhaps I might leave here not so hated and that’s a peculiar idea.”
Well it’s definitely not the way we saw the show going either, but then again, we didn’t expect ANY of the stuff that happened in this explosive series to happen AT ALL really.
So, can she win the whole series? We honestly have absolutely NO idea, and we cannot wait to find out tonight.
And then sleep for a long, LONG time to get over all the drama of the past few weeks.
