SO goodbye Alexandra De Gale, tabloid Big Brother bully elect.

The Guardian says de Gale was removed from the show for “behaving in an unacceptable and sometimes intimidating manner towards fellow housemates”.

Says the Guardian: “Big Brother ousts contestant over alleged gangster threats.”

De Gale suggested her fellow contestants would face retribution from her “gangster friends” after they nominated her for eviction: “But like I say, I get to go out, see everyone’s friends, I get to see their family. I get to do the shit that I wanna do. Pow, pow, pow.”

Alexandra is either an insecure, mentally negligible fool or a consummate media player.
She’s the Big Brother gangster! This is the slice of life stuff the newspapers want. What regret that the kitchen was not modelled on a kebab shop.

Angela Jain, Head of E4 and Big Brother at Channel 4, says: “Alex has said her comments were not intended seriously and has apologised.”

Some gangster. No paper mentions this apology but the Sun laps up Alex’s comical threats:

This is three months, do you know what I mean? Three months in a house. Everyone’s got to come outside the house. I’ve got a very, very, very, very, very strong team outside the house. Strong, so solid, strong.

I look forward to whatever the result. If I get out first, I get out, make the plans. Everyone’s got to come out after that. Every single one of you comes out afterwards, remember I told you. Like I say, my team is strong, so strong.

Alex has a seven-year old daughter and works as an accounts clerk in Croydon. Her supposed team most likely consists of a filthy nappy, a threat to have you ‘teethed’ and a gonk desk mascot.

Says Alex:

I just can’t wait to see my mans and them and see what their plans are, who they got . . . I’m not talking about those mans, I’m talking about my gangster friends.

If you go you get to make all the plans that you wanna make. When you’re in here you can’t do certain things. In my life I’m used to doing certain things. You know people p**s me off and I do something, like. I can’t actually do that while I’m here.

But like I say, I get to go out, see everyone’s friends. I get to see their family. I get to do the s**t that I wanna do. Pow, pow, pow.

Look out for Alex appearing on yoof telly was Gordon’s Brown’s gangsta tsar and writing for the Guardian about street kulchure…
