Life after Big Brother: McCririck and Coolio discuss musical collaboration

Evicted Ultimate Big Brother contestants, British horse racing pundit John McCririck and US rapper Coolio have been discussing plans for a collaborative recording, the show’s producers have revealed.

The housemates were first heard talking about it after breakfast on day 3 of the final series of the reality show, but since they both got the boot over the weekend the pair have already been in the studio together, laying down some ‘beats’.

The internationally renowned superstar, famous for his extravagant lifestlye, forthright polemic and threatening hand gestures, first approached Coolio with the idea as a joke.

“He was obviously kidding,” one producer said, “but after a short chat it seemed clear that Coolio thought it a genuinely exciting prospect.”

The track, provisionally titled ‘Tipster’s Paradise’, is in the process of being ‘tidied up’ in preparation for a live performance at the end of the series. “They’re being quite surreptitious about it,” a spokesperson for the show told The Poke last night, “but we have seen some early drafts of the lyrics.”

These include the lines:

“I got nine to two, but will I ever see four to one? With good to firm going I don’t know.”

William Hill give 2-1 on McCririck dropping the n-bomb before the track is finished.
