Celebrity Big Brother has received more complaints, this time over alleged 'bullying' by Natalie Nunn.

The American TV personality has come to blows with most of her fellow housemates in the first week of the series.


In the past two nights, she clashed with Gabby Allen leaving the Love Islander in tears.

"She is a bully and I don't use that word often," Gabby told Big Brother in the Diary Room. "I literally feel like I'm walking on eggshells the whole day. I feel so weak. I want to go home."

She added: "She's just a nasty, nasty person and I don't want to be in a house with her. I don't want to be here."

TV watchdog Ofcom has received a number of complaints about Natalie's behaviour towards her fellow housemates.

A spokesperson told The Sun newspaper: "We will assess these against our broadcasting code before deciding whether we will be investigating."

Meanwhile, yesterday in the house, the US star continued on the warpath. This time her target was Chloe Ayling, leaving the model in tears after a huge row.


But Natalie insisted: "I'm not trying to be rude. You're not going to start this cry baby s**t. You know what you're doing. You're not going to make it look like I'm bullying you. You're 21-years-old."

Natalie and Chloe then had another argument, as Natalie branded the model 'not famous enough' for the house. After, Natalie confidently declared that she would avoid eviction this week: "I'm not going anywhere."

Meanwhile, Celebrity Big Brother has lost one of its sponsors following this first week of the show.

Life Water has pulled out of their involvement with the series, after producers failed to remove Rodrigo Alves for using the n-word.

Rodrigo received a formal and final warning by Big Brother - just one day into the new series.

A spokesperson for Life Water said: "Life Water has regrettably ended its sponsorship of Celebrity Big Brother after six series following the producers' failure to evict housemate Rodrigo Alves for using deeply offensive racist language.

"Life Water continues to urge Celebrity Big Brother to reconsider its decision."

A spokesperson for Celebrity Big Brother said: "We're naturally disappointed to hear that Life Water will no longer be connected to Big Brother in a product placement capacity but we respect their right to take this decision.

"To be clear about our position, Big Brother finds any kind of racially offensive language completely unacceptable and will not tolerate this kind of behaviour in the Big Brother house."


Ofcom received over 980 complaints about the incident.

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly on Channel 5.
