Defoe admits Spurs problems due to Big Brother!

Jermain Defoe has revealed the root cause of his problems with Tottenham boss Martin Jol - Big Brother!

The England striker has been at loggerheads with Jol over the lack of first team action he's seen this season, though insists he's committed to White Hart Lane.

Defoe, meanwhile, revealed today: "I have been fined a few times for missing club dinners because I've been watching the live eviction on a Friday.

"Once we were on an away trip and the coach knew that I wanted to watch it so he made the time for dinner a little bit earlier. He said that I had to be down, but I remember thinking 'yeah right, I'm not missing it'. I can't remember who was evicted that night, but I do remember coming down half an hour late and getting a fine. It was definitely worth it though."
