MOHAMED has celebrated his 24th birthday in the Big Brother house dressed up in drag - although self-confessed know-it-all Mario at first refused to join in the fun.

MOHAMED has celebrated his 24th birthday in the Big Brother house dressed up in drag - although self-confessed know-it-all Mario at first refused to join in the fun.

While the other housemates got into the spirit of the cross-dressing fun, Mario - still smarting from some contestants refusing to dress as playboy bunnies on his fake stag night - told them he would not take part.

But, after encouragement from girlfriend Lisa, the wannabe Italian Stallion put on a skin-tight yellow outfit topped with a pink cap and told everyone his name was Mary.

The housemates later gathered to sing happy birthday to toy demonstrator Mohamed.
