On her way to the Diary Room this afternoon, Corin poked her head into the bedroom to tell Mario and John James that she was heading to the Diary Room "for a good old whinge" and to have her "first bitch". When John James made it clear that he didn't want to hear this, Corin made a jibe about his temper issues, saying, "I'm getting angry now," in the Australian housemate's accent.
The uncomfortable exchange then escalated into a full-blown row, with Corin apparently repeatedly calling John James a "dickhead" while he mocked her lack of conversational skills by only responding to her through her commonly used phrases, "loving it" and "buzzing".
"You come in here just to be angry, you've got the opportunity of a lifetime," Corin shouted as a parting shot before heading into the Diary Room. Mario, who had been present throughout the whole argument, stated that he didn't see the argument coming and thought they were just joking at first. "If she wants to take it seriously, I’ll get serious," John James replied.
John James later heard Corin talking about him in the Diary Room and smiled as he told all the housemates sunbathing in the garden that she was talking so loud that she could be heard from the house. With Corin still in the Diary Room almost an hour later, Caoimhe and David both held their ear against the entrance to see if they could make out what she was saying.
"She is going at it!" Caoimhe exclaimed. "She's fired up in there," agreed David. Corin finally exited the Diary Room shortly afterwards and shook off Caoimhe's revelation that they could hear her, saying: "I'm not surprised, I was shouting my head off."
The tension between the pair continued into the evening, when John James overheard Corin talking to Ife about him in the kitchen and mocked her for still being angry. "I don’t see the point in talking extra loud in another room," he later said to Steve. "If you want to have a conversation and tell me what you think of me, do it."
