'Celebrity Big Brother' contestant Sally Bercow's marriage could be in jeopardy because her husband didn't want her to appear on the show
'Celebrity Big Brother' contestant Sally Bercow's marriage could be in jeopardy because of the show.
The feisty blonde's husband John - who is the speaker of the House of Commons - is said to be "deeply upset" over her decision to appear on the reality TV programme and fears she could ruin the reputation of his office.
A friend of John – who has three children with Sally - told The Mail on Sunday newspaper: "There is no doubt that this could end his marriage. The stress and strain has taken a terrible toll on him.
"He has lost weight and gone greyer. He looks terrible and feels terrible.
"He can't go on like this. Some of us have told him he has got to seek a divorce for his sake and for his children's."
Friends of John – who is currently in India - added he had done all he could to stop his wife from entering the 'Big Brother' house.
Another source said: "He staked everything on stopping her going on 'Big Brother'. Now she has defied him, he has nowhere to go."
Meanwhile, Sally dressed as a mummy alongside the show's other contestants yesterday (20.08.11) as part of a special task, which saw businessman Mohammed Al Fayed make a guest appearance in the house, dressed as a pharaoh.
Later in the evening, Big Brother treated the housemates to a party in celebration of contestant Darryn Lyons' 46th birthday.
The ten housemates were given alcohol, party outfits and food, and paparazzi boss Darryn was presented with a cake in the shape of a camera.
