As part of the housmates' task this week, Big Brother set Glyn and Aislene the challenge of learning 30 phrases in sign language.

Delighted with their progress, the two went to the diary room to tell Big Brother. Amidst the chat about how much fun the whole process was, Glyndelivered a corker line when he said,
"The next blind person I see I can do my sign language."
Read the exchange which followed here.

Aislene laughed and put the poor guy right but honestly! He is the one who is supposed to be the most intelligent of all the contestants.

Pete still gets our vote here at Ouch, and judging by the amount of emails we get in our inbox from teenaged girls, he's not being discriminated against because of his disability.
