Is Ron Atkinson the one to Watch in Big Brother 2013?

The former Manchester United and Aston Villa manager Ron Atkinson is one to watch in Big Brother 2013. People are wondering whether he’ll keep his mouth shut or not as a huge portion of the UK tunes in. Everybody knows about his racist comments for which he was fired in 2004, but has he learned and changed?  It will be interesting to see.

For a man who always loved being on camera, the lure of Celebrity Big Brother – 27 remote-controlled cameras, 12 fixed, five manned, 10 infra-red, a tower cam and 57 camera mirrors strategically positioned across the house – must have had Ron Atkinson dancing with delight when he was invited back on to our TV screens. After all, his recent media appearances seem to have been limited to appearing on a William Hill betting podcast.

At 74, the former Manchester United and Aston Villa manager will be the oldest contestant in this year’s competition and he could easily be the most controversial. Are Channel 5 hoping he behaves? Or will letting loose his baser instincts help in a desperate search for ratings?

Of course, Big Ron will be forever be rightly blighted by his disgusting racist comments about black Chelsea player Marcel Desailly – remarks broadcast when he thought the microphone was switched off, and which brought him the sack from ITV in 2004 – but female contestants will surely not want to hear too many of Big Ron’s views on women. Perhaps model Sophie Anderton or Loose Women panelist Carol McGiffin will hear him expand on some of his opinions, say his comment that “women should be in the kitchen, the discotheque and the boutique, but not in football.”

Even if Mr Bojangles, as he was also known because of his love of medallions, does keep his beliefs to himself, viewers may still need their ‘Ronglish’ dictionaries. As a bejewelled perma-tanned pundit, he was famous for mangling his words and coming up with dire catchphrases such as “early doors”, “doing it for fun” and saying things such as “I’ll tell you what, the way the big fella’s gone past him there, the full-back’s not in the wide awake club”. It spawned a new branch of English, dubbed “Ronglish”.
