Nick and Victor have spent their first evening in the house together bonding, causing Brian to declare their fledgling friendship a "bromance".
"I've never seen Nick Bateman
so happy since his new best friend arrived," said the former air steward, to agreement from Nikki, Michelle and Ulrika.
"I think Victor looks up to Nick, 'cos Nick is like the ultimate villain in Big Brother," offered Nikki. Michelle also admitted that she had suspected the two of them would get on like a house on fire after spending so much time with Victor in the bedsit.
"It's a bromance!" exclaimed Brian, as they decided they were pleased that Nick would have an opportunity to grow close to a fellow housemate.
"He's so quiet, Nick. He's quiet and shy," observed Michelle, as Ulrika revealed that he does seem to be struggling with life in the house.
Meanwhile, the boys were still bonding outside - debating whether to ask Big Brother for a joint secret mission.
