John, Amy explain reasons for task refusal

By
John and Amy were the only two housemates who refused to take part in Malcolm McLaren's task this afternoon.

When the hijacker announced that he wanted everyone to strip off and roll around on the floor covered in paint, Amy insisted: "I'm not taking my clothes off."

Malcolm asked John whether he did not want to shed his clothes and roll around and John bluntly replied: "Pretty much, yeah."

Both Amy and John then banished themselves to the bedroom and watched on as the other daring contestants paraded around in their underwear and painted each other.

"There's a thing where I feel uncomfortable with the way I look, especially on television," John confided, adding that he also felt that he shouldn't participate because of his job.

Amy advised him that he should not worry about what he looks like, saying: "That's something you have to come to terms with yourself. This isn't the way to do it."

The artist then revealed why she did not want to take part, explaining that many of the others have good bodies because of their careers. She mentioned that Anthony, Jeremy and Calista were athletes to a certain extent, while Nathan and Calista had to look good for their industries.

"I'm just a student who got a lot of As at GCSE," Amy explained, adding: "I'm not getting undressed for the sake of being undressed. Also I got that bikini bought for me as a present and I bought that underwear with the money I've earned."
