The first night of a new BIG BROTHER is a time for quiet contemplation and solitude round at Casa lowculture. It takes a little while to get a handle on each of the new housemates and to form a reasonable and balanced opinion about their strengths and weaknesses.
Happily, it took considerably less time to decide which ones we would shag, especially in the case of Anthony, where it could probably be argued that there wasn't even a decision to be made in the first place.
Bitchy gay hairdresser Craig was a bit more of a problem. Like most other homosexual viewers, the second he appeared we thought: "What a nastly little gay. It's people like him that give the rest of us a bad name. Et fucking cetera."
It took less than 30 seconds for a well-meaning friend to burst our bubble by texting to say: "You fancy him". Not "I bet you fancy him", or even "you will probably fancy him after a couple of weeks". And do you know what? Our friend was absolutely right, and we look forward to drunkenly chasing Craig around nightclubs at three in the morning in due course.
Interestingly, Craig's claim to be the biggest, hardest bitch on the gay block who didn't care what anyone thought about him was quickly proved to be nothing more than some desperate bravado – by the end of Sunday he was curled up in the foetal position, sobbing about how nobody liked him and how lonely he felt.
Now THAT'S our kind of gay.

You didn't mention that he looks like Shirley Ghostman.
