Blackburn Big Brother contestant Becky takes eviction in her stride
BLACKBURN’S Big Brother contestant is focusing on living life to the full after being voted out of the house.
Becky Hannon, of Kingsley Close, Feniscowles, was evicted from the Channel 5 show on Friday night after being voted in as a wildcard by viewers days after the programme started.
The 19-year-old former drama student said that despite boos from the crowd on leaving the house, she had thoroughly enjoyed her time with the 16 other housemates. Becky said: “I thought it was so much fun. It is so intense in places like that and there were times when I got a bit down, but we were bound to.
“I didn’t mind being booed, it is all just a pantomime and I was not the only person on the receiving end.
“I am in the outside world now so whatever happens happens, it was a real experience.”
While in the house, Becky’s parents Ann and Terry said their daughter had become the victim of cyber bullying because of her weight.
But Becky said she was not interested in what people had said about her and she was just concentrating on enjoying the experience.
She said: “I am not reading anything about it, no magazines or papers.
“People have their own opinions on me and that’s fine as long as my family and friends stick by me.
“I am just living life at the moment, I don’t have any plans and it’s all a bit hectic.”
Becky’s mum thanked East Lancashire for all the support people had shown to get her so far in the competition.
She said: “As a mum and a family, we are so proud that Becky has brought some happiness to people. I just think what an achievement to have been on the show.
“She had done really well to be voted in by the public.
“Her character and how she was in the house were great.
“She has had the most amazing experience of her life, we have had lots of laughs and she has just had an absolute blast.
“She cannot believe the masses of support she has had from the public, she is just overwhelmed.”
The Big Brother Final takes place a week tonight and the winner will walk away with £50,000.
