This morning, Mark made his final decision and left the Big Brother house. It was an emotional morning. Big Brother switched on the bedroom lights and called Mark to to the Diary Room, and without hesitation Mark got dressed and started saying his goodbyes. It was a poignant moment when the housemates realised that Big Brother didn’t play in the usual annoying sounds to wake them up. Big Brother took a more gentle approach.
With many tears and hugs at the staircase Mark said his goodbyes and made his way through the Diary Room door and down the corridor. And then he was gone.
The housemates were just getting to grips with his decision when the lightbox changed to red to show Marks departure and a final announcement that Mark was no longer a housemate. Even I had a lump in my throat!
