Big Brother 2017: Rebecca Jane reveals 'the truth' behind Arthur Fulford's exit

Rebecca Jane has revealed the 'truth' behind Arthur Fulford's Big Brother exit.

Arthur quit this year's series just over a week in, but no official statement was released as to why with his departure not being shown on camera.

In an apparent interview with The Sun after leaving, Arthur was quoted as saying: “It all became way too much. I felt bullied and isolated."

He continued: "Every year Big Brother has a ‘cool group’ consisting of the young, good looking models. They treat the rest of us as their inferiors and that infuriated me!"

In a lengthy post on Twitter, Rebecca offered up her take on the situation from inside the house.

She denied any sort of bullying and explained: "I loved Arthur. He's funny, quirky and very eccentric. We had daily 'bath time' together and had a great relationship... Arthur leaving was a bit of a mystery to us all, I for one was gutted. I still am. I wish he stuck it out. The house LOVED him. We said he was the winner from day 1.

"HOWEVER - Arthur got caught up in the game. He admits he fully knew what he was doing to wind people up and create drama in the house. He didn't need to do that, he had enough intellect and hilarious ways to go far without playing on people's downfalls. "

Rebecca, who got evicted from the house on Friday, explained: "There's a lot that wasn't seen. Kayleigh loved him... until Arthur called her fat, a c**t, Bitch and other tirades of abuse. He never indicated he had an issue with anyone saying 'no money, absolutely, no money' because it came after a very endearing story he told about meeting his fiancé.

"We mimicked Arthur WITH him, never AGAINST him."

She went on to discuss the row between Arthur and the housemates over the storeroom: "The storeroom... had been continuously locked that day. No one could get food for long periods of time, so we took it all out and put it in the cupboards mid afternoon.

"It was in the early hours of the morning that Arthur decided to randomly put it all back. He knew certain people would lose their s**t come morning when they couldn't get breakfast. Which is why he did it. It was a stunt."

Rebecca continued: "A lot of people in the house ignored Arthur after various dramatic and uncalled for incidents that were blown completely out of proportion. Which is why he will have possibly felt isolated. I truly don't believe he was. As a house we could have overcome it, if he'd stayed. "

She concluded: "Whatever you're doing Arthur - I thought you were genius, stressful at times, but don't change your eccentric and quirky ways.

"They make you a very unique and individual character. Thank you for some very special moments, and for making my bed... I understood exactly what it meant when you had gone "
