Big Brother beauty Layla Subritzky dumped her boyfriend Sam Wallace by phone, claiming he was too interested in skinny girls and there was no spark left in the relationship they started in the house.
Layla, 25, broke down in tears on the set of Celebrity Apprentice after breaking up with Sam two weeks ago. She’d heard rumours he had been seen kissing fellow Big Brother contestant and self-confessed “firecracker” Angie Murray. Sam and Angie deny it, and he insists he’s been faithful to Layla since they fell in love with each other when he entered the house as an intruder last year.
“I didn’t want it to end and I still don’t know why it did,” Sam, 22, says. “Layla was the first girl I’ve been in love with. I’m not interested in anyone else. My priority has always been Layla and, yes, she did hurt me. I spent Valentine’s Day alone!” Angie, 22, feels sorry for Sam because he has had his heart broken. But she is very happy with her own boyfriend, Sam Amey, who she met after leaving the Big Brother house and is now living with on the Gold Coast.
“He had a giggle when I told him what Layla was saying about us,” she says. Layla fell hard for handsome Sam when he entered the house. The couple quickly hooked up, despite Angie making a play for him behind Layla’s back. “I was instantly attracted to Sam,” Layla says. “It was really nice to have a friend in the house. We knew it might be different on the outside, but when we got out of the house we continued the relationship. We came to Sydney the day after the finale and we’ve been together ever since.
“I knew he played the field but he told me he wanted a serious relationship.” Layla still hasn’t seen a full episode of Big Brother but did watch the bit where Angie flirted with Sam. She and Angie fell out over it, particularly as Angie used Layla’s flirtation with fellow contestant George Baramily to drive a wedge between her and other housemates. “Angie fancied Sam but I kissed him,” Layla says. “She told everyone I broke George’s heart but it’s not true. George is one of my best friends to this day. Angie and I never really made up or resolved anything properly. I think she will be happy to hear our relationship failed.”
