Don't cry Ziggy, here comes the cavalry; BIG BROTHER SENDS THE BOYS IN.
LONE Big Brother boy Ziggy finally got his wish last night as another two men entered the house.
Gerry and Seany arrived separately and joined Ziggy, who has been desperate for some male company.
Last week, when Ziggy entered the house and realised he was the only man among 11 women, he asked: "Can I lock the doors?"
But the bitching, catfights and the girls' inability to make decisions reduced him to tears.
He sobbed: "I'm finding it hard being the only guy in here.
"It's testing me a bit. I'm finding things hard with bitching and you get dragged into it. I'm feeling a little bit homesick. Girls are so different.
"They are all great girls but I just feel a little bit lonely. I feel like I'm on my own."
Last night, Davina McCall put him out of his misery. But both new housemates are gay.
Art gallery researcher Gerry Stergiopoulos, 31, was the first in.
Gerry grew up in Greece but moved to the UK 12 years ago and studied history of art at Edinburgh University. Wearing a black jacket adorned with medals, Gerry entered the house to cheers from the crowd.
Inside, he was greeted by screams, hugs and kisses from the women.
And despite his earlier woes, Ziggy did look a little put out at losing his chief status in the house.
Gerry was taken aback by the heavy female presence, exclaiming: "There's one man in the house."
Minutes later, Seany O'Kane arrived to a similar reaction. Seany, 25, from Londonderry, is a charity worker now living in Manchester.
The new arrivals were called into the diary room, where Gerry said he was "a little bit overwhelmed".
Gerry, who lives in Clapham, south London, practises yoga, has four wardrobes full of clothes and says his life would be improved by a dressing room and a butler.
A teetotaller, he claims sex is his only vice and admits to being a "total control freak" and a "hedonistic hypocrite".
Seany had a bit-part in the movie Bloody Sunday but would rather invent new toys than be an actor.
However, he could prove valuable in the house when the fur flies. He played peacemaker during another reality TV show five years ago.
The ram my erupted in a Belfast hotel after a free bar was put on by producers Granada Television.
Seany was one of eight from Northern Ireland - four Catholics and four Protestants - taking part in The Blame Game in 2002.
But he ended up holding two fellow booze-fuelled participants apart after they hit out at each other.
He said: "We were trying to stay clear of political conversations."
With Emily gone after calling Charley a "n****r" and no eviction last night, there are 10 women and three men in the house.
