Big Brother housemate cheats on his girlfriend.


Things are getting naughty in the Big Brother house.


And the sad thing is that one of the corners of the triangle is outside of the house.

Housemate Cat (that’s her name, she’s not the house pet) is a 31-year-old divorcee midwife from Melbourne. And she’s got the hots for Lawson, a 23-year-old electrician magician from Perth. It looks like the pair had a naughty bath together (standard Big Brother practice) and shared a bed in a secret room, disappearing under the covers together.


Gasp. Shock. Horror.

Candice Leeder, Lawson’s partner of five years, had to shut down her social media profiles following the Sunday night episode, when the truth of the nature between Cat and Lawson started coming out.

Lawson broke down in the ‘Diary Room’ after he was forced to watch footage of his indiscretion, admitting to cheating on his girlfriend.

“I wanted to make my mum proud, I’ve let her down Big Brother, I’ve let everyone down,” Lawson said of his mother, who died when he was 19. “I feel like I’ve self-destructed my life Big Brother. I’m embarrassed.”

“It’s just you’re meant to be a reflection of your parents Big Brother. And I’m not a reflection of mine.”

Cat and Lawson had decided to play it cool just last week, when she broke down in tears and confessed feelings for him. “I genuinely have feelings for you … Not friendship feelings. Real feelings for you. It’s really hard for me because of the situation that you’re in, and I want to be completely respectful of that but I find I have to pull away and not be around you as much as I would like to be.”

They decided to hang out as mates. But then they got dirty in the tub. And now they are both feeling awful.

We just feel sad for poor Candice.
