Wedding day jitters for Mario
Muscleman Mario has dramatically tried to call off his 'wedding' to sexy blonde Steph, 19, due to take place today (08.06.08).
After waking from hen and stag parties this morning feeling a little worse for wear, the housemates started preparing for Mario and Steph's 'marriage'. The couple are to wed as part of a secret challenge set by Big Brother on their entrance to the house.
But tattooed Mario confronted Steph in the bedroom - breaking the marriage tradition that the groom is not supposed to see the bride on the morning of the wedding - and berated her for her 'unconvincing' behaviour, saying: "The wedding's off. Get some other muppet to do it with you."
Syliva rushed to comfort the bride, saying: "Your fiancee needs to watch what he says before it kicks off big style. Why would he just all of a sudden flip on you?"
Most of the housemates have raised their doubts about the authenticity of both the relationship and the marriage, and yesterday Dennis and Alexandra conspired to get all the housemates to sabotage today's wedding.
Mario then went back to the pool where he re-assumed his role of groom to Darnell and Mikey, saying: "I'm going to get a love suite tonight, and champagne with one special lady."
Big Brother then split the house into male and female sections in preparation for the wedding.
