TLC has something really gritty in store for the next episode of My Strange Addiction.

On Wednesday’s episode, a peculiar gal named Patrice will come clean about her love for, um, brick dust. The sunny English woman, 28, explains how her U.K. surroundings – Big Ben, the House of Parliament, you name it – is just like one big, delicious smorgasbord to her.

“I’ve always got to have it,” she says simply.

If that’s not odd enough, her obviously patient husband Calvin seems rather accepting of his wife’s peccadillo that she picked up from, of all people, her grandmother. And to help put her brick diet in perspective, TLC is kind enough to explain how many crumpets Patricia would have to eat to equal the amount of bricks she consumes.

Wednesday’s episode will also include a woman who is married to a carnival ride and another who just loves to look like Pamela Anderson.

My Strange Addiction airs on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
