Darnell's love lessons

Darnell discussed his romantic status with Rex and Mohamed last night. The US rapper - who was involved in a vicious argument with Kathreya last night - has previously confused the other 'Big Brother' housemates with tales of his romantic life, but finally decided to come clean during a late-night chat.
Darnell - whose stage name is Platinum - told the boys he had met a girl called Vanessa during his music career.
When they first met, Darnell recalled: "She was like, 'So you're Platinum, you're an amazing singer, I heard your song.' "
However, their fledgling relationship was cut short when Darnell was thrown out of a music industry party and off his record label for misbehaving, prompting Vanessa to say she didn't want to "associate with someone like Darnell".
The pair were eventually reunited when Darnell rejoined his label, and she even emailed him before he went into the house saying she had "strong feelings" for him and would wait for him.
However, the rapper revealed he is worried about the situation because it is "too good to be true".
Meanwhile, Darnell's grandmother has rubbished his claims he was in an American gang, saying the reason he was deported "had nothing to do with gangs - he's never been involved in anything like that."
Pam Macrae told the South Wales Evening News: "Let's face it - would you want a partially-sighted person in your gang? Can you imagine him getting a gun out? It doesn't add up."
She also said she was unsure whether Darnell would win the show because of his recent bullying behaviour.
She said: "His mum agreed with me that he's been a complete idiot. And she's married to a preacher so she's not very happy about the language."
