Andrew Brady begs to be sober on CBB as he can’t control himself around Courtney Act

A contestant on Celebrity Big Brother has pleaded to be kept sober in the house because he’s attracted to Courtney Act.

In a preview of Friday’s episode, Andrew Brady- who identifies as straight- was asked about his blossoming relationship with the RuPaul’s Drag Race star.

Speaking in the Diary room, Andrew admitted that he found them attractive, saying “Courtney’s hot and Courtney’s a little bit of a minx.”

Big Brother then asked Andrew whether he thought he flirted with Courtney, to which he confessed that he did, mostly when drunk or tipsy.

He said: “Yeah, I think so because Courtney’s only ever out when we’ve had a few drinks, Courtney looks even better.

“I’m not taking anything away from Shane, he’s a good looking lad, but when you’ve had a couple of drinks, you see Courtney and you’re like, ‘Wow.’”

Andrew continued: “Big Brother, you need to stop giving me alcohol when I’m around Courtney, because you never know!”

Courtney, who goes by Shane out of drag, has made waves within the Celebrity Big Brother house since their entry on January 5.


Andrew discussed his feelings towards Courtney, who identifies as genderfluid when not in drag, but uses female pronouns when performing.

“When I see Courtney and I go, ‘Whoa’, you know, good looking with the bum implants with the fake boobs and the hair and it all looks great,” he said.

“But deep down I know it’s still Shane under there, but Courtney has the same sense of humour, the same personality as Shane.”

Many fans of the show have picked up on the close friendship between Courtney and Andrew, with several fans tweeting about alleged flirting and a potential relationship.

Courtney made waves in a previous episode, they gave viewers and fellow housemate India Willoughby a lesson in gender after India claimed that genderfluid people ‘cheapen’ the cause for transgender people.

Courtney has won over the hearts of many fans and is now the favourite to win Celebrity Big Brother.

In comparison, the odds of trans broadcaster India Willoughby winning the show are 100/1.

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
