What is it about Celebrity Big Brother contestants and horses, eh? Is there some kind of lowest common equine denominator the CBB producers were using this year to determine which celebrities got into the house? "Dappy got kicked in the head by one… check. Evander Holyfield punched another one in the face… check. Luisa Zissman… was on the same programme as that Katie Hopkins… who once had sex… in a field… used by horses? Yeah, get her on."
*Retro record scratch noise* Hold up – what? Evander Holyfield punched a horse in the FACE?
Um, yep. Yes, he did this, as he explained to animal lover Liz Jones and Luisa Zissman in the house before last night's eviction.
And, umm, if that wasn't enough… the horse was also pregnant.
"I fell off my horse too. I was so mad, because I didn't know my horse was pregnant and the horse's back feet missed me when I fell," he told his housemates.
"And I was so mad at the horse when I fell, I hit him right in the jaw."
First of all, YOU CAN'T GO AROUND PUNCHING HORSES IN THE FACE, secondly, we think you'll find that horse was a lady horse if it was pregnant, and thirdly, SERIOUSLY, DON'T PUNCH HORSES IN THE FACE.
Luisa and Liz were just as shocked by his confession, with Luisa saying she was "disgusted" and Liz going a little further. "You punch my horse I would stab you – seriously," she told Evander.
Anyway, he's out now – and hopefully all stables within a 20-mile radius of him will be sharpening their horses' hooves in preparation for any future visits he might make to them.
