Celebrity Big Brother 2016: Saira Khan 'gets death threats'


Saira Khan has been the victim of death threats over her Celebrity Big Brother stint.

The Loose Women star was evicted on Tuesday night and found herself the target of hateful comments online.

On viewer tweeted simply: “Saira needs to die.”

“I can’t wait for Saira to die in a car crash or a house fire," another wrote (via The Sun).

Another harsh comment aimed at Saira came from Marnie Simpson's Geordie Shore co-star and former CBB winner Charlotte Crosby.

She tweeted: "I honestly hope SAIRA doesn't work again, for her bullying rank disrespectful behaviour. id be embarrassed to be one of your children."

However Saira has claimed she was the one being bullied on the show in her exit chat following Tuesday's live eviction.

She accused Marnie of making her feel 'degraded' after being targeted following a row between the pair.

"I think at that moment I had just come out of the Diary Room, crying my eyes out and feeling quite vulnerable," Saira reflected.

She told press: "It was offensive, I felt really degraded myself, and I really felt quite sorry for her for thinking she could do that to another woman and think it was funny - I was very disappointed in her.

"I felt it was degrading of her, I felt really sad, I felt bullied and insulted. So I felt disappointed that she had to do that as a prank."

Speaking on ITV's Loose Women on Wednesday, Saira admitted the experience was tough but confessed he had got "the biggest cheque in showbiz" to take part.

"I’ve got an extension coming up and I needed it to be paid for!" she quipped.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
