Big Brother 9: Mario Marconi On The Telly

by | 9th, June 2008

“MARIO beat me up, says ex-lover,” says the Sun. “Big Brother’s Mario is a violent bully with a vicious temper,” says Denise Bailey, “now happily married with three children.”

Says Denise: “I want people to know the truth — that he is a very nasty person who does not deserve fame and celebrity status. He is jealous, obsessive and violent. I think in 13 weeks on Big Brother, his true colours will show.”


Denise is not bitter nor obsessive, just keen to tell Sun readers that 20 years ago Mario, nee Shaun Astbury, aka the “BBEAST” is a complete swine who gave her a busted lip, black eye and punched her in the stomach.

Says Denise, who lives on “an exclusive estate near Premiership soccer players”: “I am not saying this for financial gain but to tell people what he is really like. I am not scared of him any more.”

Mario has appeared on BBC2’s Kitchen Criminals, Brits Behind Bars and Ant and Dec on Saturday Night Takeaway.
