What?! CBB star George Gilbey’s mum reckons Stephanie Pratt isn’t the only girl to catch her son's eye in the house
Hands up who hasn’t been totally bowled over by gorgeous George Gilbey? He’s the outright star of this year’s Celebrity Big Brother and we reckon its not long before he’s crowned winner of the show!
But the story that’s made this series absolutely captivating is the cute friendship between George and American star Stephanie Pratt. Before they entered the house they could have won a prize for the couple least likely to get together. But their affectionate friendship has left us all hoping that they’ll live happily ever after when they leave the Celebrity Big Brother house – awww!
But who would really know if the on-screen chemistry between George and Stephanie is for real better than his mum, Gogglebox’s Linda McGarry. We asked her to tell us whether she thought Stephanie could be a future daughter-in-law and shockingly, she suggested that it might be someone else in the house who George has his eye on… Edele Lynch!
‘I do think that Edele Lynch or that Emma Willis is more his type,’ she says. ‘He likes girls who are down-to-earth and he does go for brunettes.’ Ooh, interesting.
Edele has broken down in the house after it emerged that she has split from her husband of seven years, Micheal Barrett. They have three children so Edele is clearly still cut up about the split, but maybe after they all leave the house she might eventually fall for the charms of the Gogglebox ladies’ man.
‘He’s brilliant with kids,’ Linda continued. ‘And he’ll make an amazing father one day. It’s about time I had some grandchildren.’
Even if romance doesn’t blossom between George and Edele, we reckon he’ll be inundated with offers from the ladies when he leaves the house, so hopefully you won’t have to wait too much longer for those grandchildren, Linda!
