'Best man' Mikey

Mikey has agreed to be Mario's 'best man'.
Bodybuilder Mario asked the blind crossdresser for his support tomorrow (08.06.08) when he 'marries' Steph as part of a secret 'Big Brother' task.
Mikey said: "That would be such an honour."
But Mario - who once appeared on 'Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway' where he tried to fool members of the public into thinking he was Joey from US comedy 'Friends' - said he doesn't want Mikey to take it too seriously.
He said: "You're funny, that's all I want. Light-hearted, yeah? None of this serious love and romance."
But 42-year-old Mario has sparked more sceptisism among housemates by saying the 'couple' won't spend the night together after the ceremony.
He said: "I'm so big I can't sleep straight in the bed. Even these beds are too small for me. Tonight she'll have to sleep in there. And tomorrow."
But Mikey was not prepared to allow Mario - whose real girlfriend Lisa is in on the scam - to be separted from his 'wife-to-be'.
He said: "Tomorrow night as well? We can't have you parted on the wedding night!"
