Pete opens up about split
16:30 19 September 2006
'Big Brother' winner Pete Bennett dumped girlfriend Nikki Grahame because their sex life was almost non-existent.
The Tourette's sufferer, who ended the couple's relationship after just five weeks, claims the blonde beauty has little interest in sex and was too self-conscious to let herself go.
Pete, 24, told Britain's Heat magazine: "She was never really interested, whereas my sex drive is very high! If I ever tried it on, she would have to finish her make-up or be looking her best."
Pete, who won £100,000 after being voted the winner of the Channel 4 reality show, also admitted that Nikki's constant tantrums and prissy behaviour was too much for him to handle.
He added: "Her behaviour made me embarrassed. She was saying my friend's house smelt like 'doggie-woggies' and started spraying perfume everywhere.
"When we were at a party she was asked to help clear up. She said, 'Have you seen an A-list celebrity working?' and refused to do anything. She's high maintenance."
Pete ended the pair's relationship over the phone as he was afraid of how Nikki would react if he told her face-to-face.
He said: "I didn't know how she'd be."
At the weekend, Nikki, who is also 24, admitted she was devastated after Pete decided to call time on their romance.
