Craig goes all out for Ant
Craig is pulling out all the stops to bed Ant.
16:55 15 July 2005
Convinced that they are up for eviction tonight, Craig has been stepping-up his efforts to win over 70s dancer Anthony.
Craig explained to house elder-statesman Derek about his true frustrations.
"Don't you just hate it when you meet somebody that is so ideal for you, yet you can't have them?
"It's not fair! You meet the perfect person and he ticks every bloody box - and you're like, 'Uuuh!'"
Unfortunately for Craig, the Geordie is still - somehow - resisting his charms.
But this has not deterred the Norfolk hairdresser, who has launched a campaign to win the object of his affections the like of which has not been seen since Saskia succumbed to Maxwell.
Last night, a few beers to the good, Craig made his boldest move yet.
"Would you sleep in a bed with me?" asked the hair stylist.
Anthony attempted to avoid what was coming, replying: "Let's not get in to it."
But that was never going to work, as Craig countered: "What do you think I am going to do, rape you? Maxwell let me [share a bed]."
Eventually Anthony said that if there weren't enough beds then maybe, possibly, there was a chance he would consider it - but this was never going to be enough.
"Ohh Anthony, can I have a hug?" Craig asked in the diary room, and continued his pestering in the living room later.
"I don't know how to be with you, Anthony," the Norfolk lad said, adding: "If I pay you a compliment you don't like it, and then you don't like it if I lay into you," he said, sounding confused.
"If I said to you, Anthony I think you've got really lovely eyes, you wouldn't like it," he prattled on.
"Can't we just have a normal craic instead of ripping into us, or saying I've got lovely eyes?" Anthony pleaded.
But as Craig's obsession stepped up a gear, this was never enough - he later returned to his bed plan.
"I can talk to you all night then and...I don't know...my last night in here could potentially be with you...we can top and tail...you could have a separate duvet."
But for the Geordie, sharing a bed with another hairdresser was not going to happen when there were spares.
"No, I am not sleeping in a double bed with you - there's a spare bed," he announced.
Craig, finally, appeared to concede defeat: "I give up with you," he said - but this is unlikely to be the last we've heard of the bed-sharing plan.
