Kristina and Karissa Shannon

Evicted Celebrity Big Brother housemates Romeo and Nicola McLean have spoken about last weekend's argument between the twins and Denise, revealing that Big Brother was forced to separate the warring housemates.

Clashes ripped through the house on Sunday evening after Denise pulled down Karissa's pants as part of a drunken prank.

Recalling the incident, Romeo said yesterday: "One minute the girls were all dancing and singing Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and then it exploded.

“The next thing I went inside and everyone was shouting and screaming and swearing. Everyone was so angry and I knew it was going to be hard to calm this down.

“Tensions had been building between Karissa, Kristina, Denise and Nicola and it just took that one thing to set it off.

In scenes not broadcast, Big Brother bosses were forced to step in an split the two groups apart, locking doors to ensure they couldn't get at one another.

“I got placed in the bedroom with Gareth and Frankie and Denise. The twins, Nicola and Michael were in another room," Romeo said. “We did our best to calm Denise down. She was crying and hysterical."

Meanwhile Nicola admitted that the situation "got bad".

“When it got really bad, Big Brother shouted over the tannoy," she revealed. “There was no physical stuff. At the time it was nasty but I don’t regret what I did.”

She added: "I genuinely believe if a man had done that he would have been kicked out."
