Well, sort of.
It is just for a new reality show but Speaker Bercow can’t be happy that his wife is seemingly going to great lengths to embarrass him even more.
Sally Bercow will no doubt infuriate her husband, Commons Speaker John Bercow, even more when she moves in to Irish traveller Paddy Doherty’s caravan.
The pair will start filming When Paddy Met Sally in north Wales next month. Doherty’s wife or should we say “woman”, Rosemary, will move out to make room for 41-year-old Mrs Bercow.
Mrs Bercow has previously revealed that her husband was not overjoyed with her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother, and her latest lobbying for stardom has been seen by some as a factor that could bring further tension to a marriage that they say is already under strain.
Doherty said, “I’m getting paid a few bob to live with her for a few weeks. I told the people when I signed up that I’m likely to murder her. She better know that I can’t cook and clean. I can wash a cup but that’s about it. If she tells me to start cooking and cleaning, I’m going to kick off. I’ll teach her something about gipsy life, that’s for sure. She’ll know what travelling is all about when I’ve finished with her. We got on diamond in the Big Brother house so I’ve agreed to come and let her live with me for two weeks. I think me woman will move out for a week but not sure what’s happening the other way round, whether I’ll move in to the House Of Commons with her.”
Mrs Bercow, infamously posed in nothing but a bed sheet with Big Ben and the House of Commons in the background for ES magazine was the first contestant voted out of by the public in Celebrity Big Brother earlier this summer.
