Following today's task, which resulted in Rachael now being up for eviction on Friday, Shabby and Rachael have been offering each other support.
During a conversation with Mario, Ben raised his suspicions about how close the pair really are. "Two days ago Rachael and Shabby had absolutely nothing to say to each other, you know, the glamour queen and the stand-in for 'Boys Don't Cry'," he said.
Mario rationalised the situation by saying: "But by being up for public vote is instantly a way of creating a bond."
Ben then continued, referring to his earlier argument with Shabby. "In many ways, I am a very private person. She (Shabby) always involves other people. She went blubbing to Rachael," he explained, before referring to his fellow housemates as "the Beyoncé lookalike and the Artful Dodger from Oliver Twist".
