Hazel O’Sullivan's friend has blasted Big Brother haters, branding them jealous.
The Irish model faces the axe this evening alongside Callum Knell, Wolfy Millington and Jackie Travers, and it looks like there will need to be a miracle for Hazel to survive the chop.
The brunette beauty has even been getting death threats with one insider commenting: “Hazel is seriously hated. The tide has turned on her and she’s going to get a rough ride when she leaves."
However Hazel's friend Ali Ryan reckons some viewers are just jealous.
Ali said: "There are a lot of girls who are jealous of her. There are always model spats - she's been in the papers for having rows with people before.
"It does happen, but it's pure jealousy - but she is also very ambitious."
Despite the odds being against Hazel, Ali reckons the model can still manage to turn it around and win.
"She's the most real," Ali claimed, "I think the Daley thing might help, too, they're so cute. But no one can accuse her of just going in and starting a relationship - this is three weeks in."
And Abi added: "Before she went into the house, she had never seen an episode [of Big Brother] - she was quite shocked when I showed her."
Big Brother 2013 airs tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
