Big Brother’s Glyn, Joel up for election to Welsh Assembly

Ex Big Brother housemates Joel Williams and Glyn Wise to go head-to-head in Welsh election

Former Big Brother contestants Glyn Wise and Joel Williams will compete against each other to win the Cardiff Central seat in the 2016 Welsh Assembly elections.

Yesterday, the Welsh Conservatives selected Joel as their candidate for the constituency in May’s vote – which will take place just under a year after he entered the Big Brother house.

Joel – a local Tory councillor who has made no secret of his “achievable” ambition to become Prime Minister – eventually came second in the ‘Timebomb’ series, during which he memorably burnt a frozen pizza that he’d spent £2,500 of the prize fund on.

But in an unlikely twist of fate, he will go up against fellow BB star Glyn – runner-up of 2006’s fan-favourite seventh series, in which he “cooked an egg for the very first time”.

Glyn, now 27, will stand in the same seat for Plaid Cymru after relaunching himself as a politician earlier this year.

Their rivalry began on Twitter last night when Glyn tweeted Joel his congratulations, writing: “Welcome to the race! You have a lot of catching up to do mind, Many are turning to @PlaidCCentral @Plaid_Cymru 2016”

Joel hit back: “Thanks Glyn- don’t worry we’ll make sure our public will come out and vote conservative- the party of opportunity.”

Cardiff Central is currently represented by Labour’s Jenny Rathbone, who will be standing for re-election. Other candidates include the Liberal Democrats’ Elunedd Parrott and the Green Party’s Amelia Womack.

    The Party of Opportunity – the opportunity to visit food banks, the opportunity to live on thousands less, the opportunity to be ruled by scum.
