Mario muscles in

Mario has vowed to "take the reins" in the ‘Big Brother’ house.
The muscle-bound moaner - who conducted a cringeworthy health and safety meeting earlier in the week - said he has stood on the sidelines for too long and it was time to take charge.
He said: "I could run this place on my head, eyes shut, half asleep. But I’ve chosen to stand back because it’s a game."
Mario - who said he has his own fan club of thousands - announced he would need to be in control of the next shopping budget to ensure he gets enough calories to exercise.
He said: "I want to eat properly. I don’t want to eat chickpeas. If you don't get your calories you can't train, and I like training."
Executive chef Rex - who was born into a successful family of restaurateurs - promised not to buy anymore expensive food.
But Mario insisted on putting girlfriend Lisa forward to cook as she had more "creative" culinary skills than Rex.
