Kay Lovelle left the Big Brother house in Tuesday’s episode (October 2), but the former housemate says that there were some scenes the show didn’t air.
On TV, the other housemates were shown to be supportive of Kay’s decision and cheered her as she made her exit.
But speaking to Digital Spy, Kay said that her departure was even more “beautiful”, “amazing”, and “positive” than what viewers saw, and that key moments were omitted from the final cut.
She added that she wished the programme had aired the exit in full, because it showed that reality TV doesn’t have to be about drama and it can lean towards positivity and showing the good in people.
“I was told by production, in the whole of Big Brother history, they’ve never had an exit like mine,” she said. “I was told how positive it was and how the housemates came together and everybody was crying.
“They didn’t even air half of the things that happened. How they huddled in a circle around me and I was inside the circle, and I made this speech and I cried, they cried.
“My final Diary Room speech was from the heart and probably the best thing I’ve ever experienced in my life. My exit, I’ve never felt more love, more support, and more warmth from people, and I wish that they could give the Diary Room speech to me to put out, because what happened in that house this year was so beautiful.
“I would have thought if anything, that would be interesting to air, to be shown to the public. Something completely different from the usual bitchy scenario and the drama.
“It shouldn’t be a cover-up, and I think it would shock the public, with the real stuff that went on and the amount of love that was there.”
Kay said that she believes Big Brother did not air everything because it didn’t fit with the narrative of the show, and hopes that it will eventually air the entire footage because it sends a positive message.
“It really is a shame,” she commented. “Honestly, they saw the full exit and if there was an episode of that or a half-episode, with my speech in the Diary Room, because everything was so from the heart…
“But of course, they couldn’t have aired that, it wouldn’t have made any sense – ‘Why would the housemates be nominating me? Why would they be saying things behind my back?’ So I get it. But if they can do a spin-off or something where that is aired fully, like what really happened, I’m sure even Big Brother would benefit from that.
“Because honestly that was f**king beautiful, amazing. Literally insane. If they can get Isaac’s reaction and the rest of them, even the hug that me and Cameron had – it was so genuine. Cameron was like, ‘I genuinely wish you all the best’. It was beautiful.
“The whole thing, people would be shocked, and actually I think it would be of great interest to the public and to the fans. I don’t know if that will ever see the light of day, but it is the final series and in a way they’ve got nothing to lose.
“I’m on an interesting mission now to add a new spin to the whole industry about being good!”
