'I'm an individual'
Nicole does not want to be known as Rex's girlfriend. The 19-year-old student - who entered the house on Friday last week (01.08.08) as the 57th of Big Brother's ever-changing mystery prizes - said she wants to be treated as an individual.
The new housemate confided in Big Brother during a Diary Room chat this afternoon (05.08.08) after she and Rex had a spat over her refusal to discuss the outside world.
She told Big Brother: "I'm my own person. I don't want to be known as Rex's girlfriend."
The stunning blonde went on to talk about how difficult she finds it being in a reality TV relationship.
She said: "It's a challenge being a couple in the house. It's a big deal coming on here. You're an individual but you've got to take someone else into account.
"I need to get to know people and not just stay with Rex."
She added: "I mean, I would never have sex on TV and it's hard for Rex. It's a bit frustrating."
Nicole went on to defend Rex's penchant for fighting.
She said: "Rex is one hundred per cent being himself. He likes to wind people up. He never intentionally means to hurt anybody, but I think he must get so bored in here that any argument must be a bit exciting.
"I'm really so proud of him. I think he's really entertaining and people love to watch him."
