The will-they-won’t-they relationship between Shane Jenek and Andrew Brady appeared to tip more into the ‘won’t they’ side of things last night.
Poor Shane – as his alter-ego Courtney Act – was left devastated when Andrew said he fancied Ashley James, and would “smash” her.
This exchange was given even more poignancy due to a conversation Courtney had had with Wayne Sleep, earlier in the evening.
Wayne – who appeared to be rather sozzled – got straight to the point and asked Courtney: “Do you think Andrew’s gay?”
“No,” replied Courtney.
“Do you think he’s bisexual?” pressed Wayne, continuing: “Do you want his body?”
“Of course I do!” cried Courtney at the end.
Courtney went on: “I think him and I have a very special friendship. The thing I love about him is that in some ways we’re puppy dogs over each other.”
“No no no no no,” protested Wayne, “You’re on top. Do you know why he loves you? Because he’s learning from you. Isn’t that lovely?”
Courtney carried on, saying: “The thing that I truly do love and respect about him – we’re not just in a club or a bar, we’re on television.
“As trite as this might sound, he doesn’t care what people think.”
With a twinkle in his eye, Wayne finished the conversation by saying: “The first moment of love between you two was when I saw sparkle on his beard. I thought… it’s happened!”
Unfortunately for Courtney, later on in the garden Andrew made his confession about Ashley.
He said: “If I think she needs a hug, I’ll give her a hug. And I would smash that. I’m not going to, because I’m a nice guy. But I would smash that.”
This has seemingly put an end to any potential relationship between Andrew and Courtney, so the romantics among us can file that one away for now!
