Ofcom has seen over 200 complaints over Big Brother 2013 housemate Gina Rio.

It follows last week's bust ups between her and now evicted housemate Hazel O'Sullivan, with viewers claiming that Gina "bullied" the Irish model.

The pair clashed repeatedly over the week, coming to blows in one very heated argument in the bedroom.

Gina shouted at Hazel: “You’re a pain in the a**e, a homewrecking whore, a dirty a**e skank, an ugly and disgusting cheap little tart.”

However, Hazel got as good as she got, branding Gina a "two faced ****" and making remarks about her looks.

Since Hazel's exit, Gina has continued to bitch about the brunette beauty, saying in a conversation earlier this week that "nobody is interested in her."

She added to Charlie: "She sounds irritating like a drowning cat."

Hazel's only real pals left in the house - Jack and Joe - even complained to Big Brother about Gina's behavior after the other housemates also started picking on her and blanking her.

Jack commented: “I don’t like someone in the house being victimized.”

TV Watchdog Ofcom confirmed it has received 241 complaints so far about the various rows and incidents, shown during last week's highlights show.

A spokesperson for Ofcom said it would now be assessing the complaints to see whether they warranted a full investigation.
