The Celebrity Big Brother 2016 housemates have been warned over 'the potential for bullying'.

In a rather bizarre and seemingly random chat in last night's highlights, Big Brother spoke to Lewis Bloor over the behaviour of his and some other housemates' actions.

It's not immediately clear what Big Brother was referring to, speaking about a "number of dares" that had been encouraged which may have made other housemates feel uncomfortable or humiliated.

There was much controversy over one dare involving Marnie and Saira, however that was a week ago now and so it's not clear why Big Brother suddenly decided to raise the issue this weekend.

Nevertheless, Big Brother told Lewis: "Big Brother does constantly monitor the activities of housemates and endeavours to make sure that in particular when groups develop that housemates don't feel singled out, ridiculed or humiliated by the actions or behaviour of other housemates."

Big Brother explained: "After the last few days, you and other housemates suggested and encouraged a number of dares, the effect of which were likely to make particular housemates feel uncomfortable or humiliated for the entertainment of others.

"You should remember that conduct which has the effect of making a certain housemate feel compelled to behave in certain ways could be considered bullying or isolating."

Lewis replied: "I totally agree, it's been spoke about amongst the groups. It's something we've all taken note of along the way.

"I know it wasn't our attention to make sure no one feels singled out or bullied and in fact the person who found it most insulting, Saira, is someone who I've become very close to over the past few days."

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
