Marketing Spencer

‘EVEN by OK!’s standards, this is a particularly vapid interview. But then, Spencer Smith is a man who shot into the celebrity stratosphere by doing nothing more than test the bounds of personal hygiene on our television screens for a couple of weeks.

Spencer lets another one rip

”He’s been christened the best-loved housemate never to win Big Brother,” claims OK! Now, ”due to constant requests from fans and readers alike” – rather than any desire to cash in before his ephemeral fame starts to wither and die – Spencer has ”invited OK! to his home town of St Ives in Cambridgeshire for a world exclusive interview”, denying all those eager hacks in countries around the globe the interview of the year.

In it, the lad known as Spanky reveals that he is as devoid of opinions as he is of personality. He reckons the Big Brother experience ”hasn’t really affected me all that much” and that ”life as the UK’s newest heart-throb” is ”quite exciting but can be a bit tiring”.

Now that he is no longer a part of the show, his interest in it was waned considerably. When asked which one of his former housemates he wanted to win, he replied: ”I don’t really care any more”.

But, thankfully, things have livened up a little for Spencer since he was turfed out of the house. He has turned down an offer to feature on an ironing board cover, ”where I’d be photographed in a pair of boxers that disappear when the iron gets hot” and is toying with the idea of starring in a TV show in which he takes ”sexy famous birds fishing”.

There is one point on which Spencer does have an opinion, however – his best moments in the house. ”The compilation that Davina showed of me constantly farting and burping, I was chuffed with that,” he says. Naturally – who wouldn’t be?’
