Noosa councillors were leaving the talking to their boss, however Brian Stockwell said he agreed with the actions taken by the mayor.

Cr Glasgow was heard saying: "Don't mind if I get some wandering fingers, all right".

Her response was pretty brutal: "Jesus, what's wrong with you".

Later in the episode, he called Angie a "b***h" after being told she wanted to speak to him about his inappropriate behaviour on set.

Cr Wellington said Cr Glasgow was "misogynistic, crude and offensive", particularly to women on the prime-time dating show.

"That's Tony's job to say that", Cr Glasgow said.

'I'm pretty time poor so I chose to go on TV and went into the experience with an open heart, ' he said.

"I'm truly sorry, this is despicable behaviour from me".

'I kind of wanted to show my good side, but the worst side of me was shown.

Cr Wellington said Cr Glasgow was not pleased with his recommendations.

President Trump labeled China a " currency manipulator " earlier this year after Beijing reportedly lowered the value of the yuan. When asked about those tariffs, Trump said: "I think that we're going to have a deal that's a great deal that's beyond tariffs".

During Thursday night's episode, Glasgow made rude comments and gestures towards Bachelorette star Angie Kent during a photoshoot. "I just stuck up for myself in that moment, that's all I did". "I've kissed plenty of girls and they've turned their heads before; I'm used to it".

Glasgow was also captured pulling a pretty unusual face when Kent was bent over in front of him.

Yesterday Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington announced Cr Glasgow would be referred to the Office of the independent Assessor for an alleged breach of the Councillor's Code of Conduct.

Angie Kent was not impressed with the behaviour of Noosa councillor Jess Glasgow on The Bachelorette.

"I believe that I haven't breached that conduct because I know exactly what I was there to do and I didn't intend to bring the council into disrepute".

"Absolutely I cringed, it's not me at all, it's reality TV".

"The temptation always with reality TV is, when someone does something appalling, they rush to get it to air because it will cause debate and help boost the ratings. Never. I can't have that in my life", she said.

But she said the way the other male contestants reacted to the comments was positive.

In an interview with Nova 96.9's Fitzy & Wippa this morning, Glasgow said he was "trying to be fun and jovial and carrying-on", and that he was a "bit of a flirtatious guy".
