And the fact is, he’s not really bothered about her it would seem, so for him, it’s been a showmance all along…
Not that that’s news to most of us, but just to recap, BB called Luke S into the Diary Room yesterday and explained that at this point in the show, enquiries from outside media “isn’t unusual” and asked if he would like to meet with an agent who was keen on getting started on some projects for Luke.
He happily agreed, not realizing the whole thing was being shown to his housemates who were in on the prank.
Luke was asked to do some “test shots” and posted with a rose, and in various sporting antics, and talk of a calendar was bandied about…
However, the real point of the task was yet to come, and for this part, BB turned off the screen in the main house…
In a side room, the ‘agent’ talked to Luke about all the opportunities on the outside that would present themselves, but, he added, he needed to know about “the status of you and Ashleigh.”
Sensing that it could be a problem if he was in a relationship, Luke nervously laughed and said, “Cos I came in here and I was like, I’ll just get with a bird anyway – but there’s loads of stuff that irriates me [about Ashleigh].
He added, “But if it like… it might not last on the outside world so…”
The ‘agent’ then said, “OK Are you coming out of here thinking, The Bachelor, Hollywood Nights, single life, or are you coming out thinking Katie and Peter, celebrity wedding?”
To which Luke S replied, “I dunno…. I’d prefer the bachelor life, it’s more fun.”
However, when he learned later that it was all a prank – and as he’d been thoroughly fooled, he won sushi and other treats for the house – his main worry was that Ashleigh would get to see what he’d said about her, and he rapidly tried to backtrack.
Later, Luke told his fellow HMs, “They sold it really well. I was lied to! I feel really embarrassed now.”
And when his calendar shots were shown to the house, he said, “I f******g hate them. I’ve never been so mortified in my life.”
But Ashleigh, trying to be helpful, said, “Oh honeybun, you look so funny.”
And it got worse when Ashleigh told Luke S she thought he was going to ditch her. Ooo awkward. Click here to see a clip.
We’ll bring you more news from the house later, but for now, let me know if this just confirms for you that Luke has been fake from the get go over Ashleigh, or if it’s come as a shock.
