John James Parton goes home to Australia
John James Parton has left the UK to go and visit his mother back in Australia, leaving his girlfriend and Big Brother 11 winner Josie Gibson behind.
This week the young couple starred in their own reality show ‘What Happened Next’, which shed light on life after Big Brother. Rather unsurprisingly, John James is still blunt and confrontational, Josie’s family are as outlandish as you’d expect, and Josie seems to be burning through the cash, buying expensive gifts for her new man.

"John’s gone back to Australia for a bit. I miss him already. Rubbish without him around. This will be the longest we’ve been apart in 4 months," tweeted a bereft Josie on the weekend. "Send my love to mama Parton. Feel like salt without vinegar without u here… Love u like cooked food. Miss u like crazy," she added.
