As John James flies to Oz, Josie vows to fight for her man

Put away the tissues and hold off on bulk buying chocolate.

Despite Josie Gibson and John James Parton ‘spitting’, sources close to the couple believe the Big Brother love birds will get back together.

The couple are ‘on a break’ while John visits pals in Australia after a series of big bust-ups with Josie – one saw her pelting him with a shoe and a coat hanger and even threatening to throw a vase at him. 

Josie, 26, admitted: ‘My temper’s out of line. I’m to blame for all that’s gone wrong between us.’

Josie also admits that letting their BB former housemate JJ Bird, 24, live with them has put a strain on their relationship.

John James says she drinks too much and wees with the door open.

Now‘s exclusive source says: ‘They’ve had a bumpy ride, but they’ve been in each other’s pockets for months. It’s not healthy, so they’re taking a break.

Josie wants him back and for it to work. They still love each other.’

The pair have been filming Channel 5 reality TV show There’s Something About Josie and while we’ve been told that the show, due to be aired in May, is going ahead, it remains to be seen whether it’ll have a happy ending.

‘They chat daily and although they’re taking some space,’ says a show insider, ‘there’s still hope for their future.’
