Celebrity Big Brother housemates accused of 'bullying' Hardeep by some viewers

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2018

Some Celebrity Big Brother viewers have accused housemates of 'bullying' Hardeep Singh Kohli.

Just as one controversy clears after Ryan Thomas and Roxanne Pallet's 'punchgate', it seems another is brewing.

Housemates nominated for the latest time in Sunday's show and and Jermaine Pennant and Hardeep Singh Kohli were put up for eviction. In the nominations, Hardeep received a near full house with six out of a possible seven nominations while Jermaine had the four.

It's Hardeep's third time facing the chop having avoided the axe twice before thanks to the public votes.

And in tonight's show, he was not impressed after being put up again.

When the results were revealed, Sally Morgan reacted: "No one minds being nominated. It's got to be done. Everyone knows you've got to go."

But Hardeep snapped: "I f**king hate it. I hate it. That's nonsense, being nominated three times is an awful feeling. To be held in such low regard by those around you. But it'd be quite nice if the people I lived with held me in such high regard but what can you do?"

Hardeep was also seen clashing with the other housemates over his cooking, the latest shopping task and in a debate about race.

Some CBB fans accused the group of 'bullying' the comedian and TV host.

"Sally out. She is bullying now. And yes, Hardeep is a pain in the ass. But she is nasty," one wrote on Twitter.

Another posted: "So much bullying towards Hardeep 😭 how nasty!! #cbb"

A third pointed out: "No we see you all bullying Hardeep maybe JUST MAYBE that's why he keeps getting saved Gabby #CBB"

Added a fourth: "Sally and Gabby coming across as bullying Hardeep. Yes, i agree he can be moody etc and rude, but the way they (well mostly sally) talks about him just comes across as being bitchy #cbb"

However others felt for the housemates for putting up with Hardeep's 'argumentative' personality.

"He feels sorry for himself all the time! He could start in an argument in an empty room that guy!" one CBB fan quipped online.

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 airs nightly on Channel 5.
