Celebrity Big Brother's Nicola McLean 'may need eye surgery' once she leaves the house.
Over the past few days we've seen Nicola clutching her eye which was originally explained as being a result of her contact lenses.
But sources claim that Nicola has in fact been suffering with a painful condition which may require emergency surgery once she leaves the house.
"She can’t control her eye, it keeps going off in all different directions and wandering towards her nose – it causes her terrible migraines," a source spilled to The Sun newspaper. "She suffers from light sensitivity which is why she wears dark glasses in the morning and evening, and she has to wear special contacts with dark lenses throughout the day."
They added: "The eye surgeon has warned her that she may soon need surgery to sort it all out.”
The insider went on to hit back at 'haters' who had abused Nicola online over her condition, with some Tweets even suggesting she had a fake eye.
“She’s received tonnes of abuse on Twitter and she’ll be so upset,” they said. “Nicola didn’t think it was that bad or that anyone would notice.”
A spokesman for Nicola said: "Nicola visited an eye surgeon last month before discovering she suffers from light sensitivity.
"Indeed, Nicola has been seen wearing dark glasses on occasion in recaps from her exploits in her temporary Borehamwood digs."
Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
