Yesterday, Sally Bercow took to the airwaves to assert that her marriage had not been damaged by her decision to enter the Big Brother house alongside such intellectual titans as Jedward and David Hasselhoff's ex-wife. Today however, the Speaker's wife has admitted that there are problems, namely that her husband isn't speaking to her, after she made a slight idiot of herself on the reality show. Sally was the first member of the BB household to be evicted on Saturday. According to reports, she is now living apart from John Bercow, the House of Commons Speaker.
Speaking on the Matthew Wright show, Sally said,'Things are relatively cool. But I've absolutely no regrets about going in. This isn't the 1950s. I know my husband didn't approve, but I think I'm out unscathed. I said to my husband, 'I know you're not going to like it, but I won't make a prat of myself. John said to me, 'Can't you do a sponsored swim?' I said I didn't have friends who can give me £100,000 for a swim. We used to have political ding-dongs over the cornflakes. Now he's Speaker, he's not allowed an opinion.'
The BB evictee also rejected any claims that she had embarrassed herself on a scale comparable to George Galloway, who famously donned a lycra cat-suit and drank milk out of a saucer. Sally said, 'He was a sitting MP. I am just a woman who looks after three children. I don't have any regrets.'
Hmmm, who thinks that the lady doth protest too much?
