Big Brother appearance is one of his dreams - says wife
PUBLISHED: 10:00 23 September 2011
THE family of Big Brother contestant Aaron Allard-Morgan this week told the Mercury they hope the 'really nice lad' can be successful on the show.
Aaron was one of 14 people who entered the famous TV house on September 9 - a line-up which included former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson.
And although 30-year-old Aaron was one of the first housemates nominated for eviction, he survived Friday’s vote - and now his family hopes he can go on and win.
Aaron’s stepdad, Martin told the Mercury how much he and the whole family support Aaron. He said: “We want him to go as far as he can. He’s a really nice lad.
“It takes him a while to get used to people so he comes across as someone that he’s not, but his heart is in the right place.”
Mother Mandy said the brash character on TV is not the Aaron the family recognises. She added: “His introduction video is not the Aaron we know and love.”
Aaron’s wife Claire Allard-Morgan, of Weston, the mother of their six-year-old son said the couple are still married but separated.
She said she is not a Big Brother fan but knows appearing on the show is one of Aaron’s dreams and so she supports him.
Claire said: “I know the real reason why he has done it. I know that his son will be in the front of his mind.”
Aaron’s latest TV exploits have included him enjoying a date with fellow housemate Faye Palmer, and saying the 19-year-old has ‘won him over’.
Aaron is now guaranteed at least another week in the Channel Five house after avoiding nomination for eviction this time around.
That means he will pass safely into week three of the nine-week show, making him even closer to the £100,000 prize.
