Big Brother's Anton Murphy denies sexism: 'I have a good heart'

By
Big Brother evictee Anton Murphy has denied accusations of sexist behaviour in the house.

The music producer, who was voted out of the competition on Friday night, defended some of the comments he made during the Channel 5 show, telling host Brian Dowling that he has a "good heart" and is respectful of women.

After learning that in-house rival Aaron Allard-Morgan had noted Anton's "sexist" views when nominating him, the 24-year-old stated: "I think that's quite a bad judgement. At the end of the day some of my jokes can be crude at times, but so are Jay [McKray]'s, so are all the lads in there.

"I've got a good heart, I never mean anything bad. I was raised by a really good mum. I have manners for women. I respect women."

Anton continued to blast Aaron for being a "massive game player" and apparently making Jay cry over criticism of his relationship with Louise Cliffe.

"He does do some really, really bad things... he is really intelligent and I was wary of that, but he is a massive game player," he suggested to Dowling. "He is obsessed with Big Brother, he knows it inside out. He is like a master."

Anton further argued that Aaron had deliberately attempted to coax out a villainous side to his character, saying: "He beat me, he brought out the bad side of me. He's very sneaky with his comments. His game plan was to fool the public by saying 'holy mackerel' and stuff."

Despite claiming that he would hold "really good memories" of his Big Brother experience, Anton appeared to dismiss the feelings of previous evictees Rebeckah Vaughan, Heaven Africa and Maisy James, all of whom branded him "a snake" upon their respective exits.

"They're irrelevant to my life," he declared. "I'm very loyal to my close friends, Jay, Louise and Aden [Theobald]. Those three people, I will die for them."

The self-professed villain of the show did, however, end his Big Brother experience on a positive note, declaring his "love" for the entire house in a goodbye message.

"I've enjoyed every single moment, the ups and the downs of all of you lot," he said. "I love you all and I can't wait to see you all when I'm out."
