X Factor stars defend Jedward on Celebrity Big Brother amid 'bullying' claims

Celebrity Big Brother 2017

Jedward's X Factor co stars have jumped to the duo's defence amid claims of bullying on Celebrity Big Brother.

Jedward are back in the CBB house for their second stint as part of this January's All Star show and it's proving to be rather explosive.

Over the past week in particular, the twins have found themselves involved in a number of rows and claim they've been left 'isolated' by a clique in the house.

Reacting to the latest goings on, some fans of the X Factor singers reckon the treatment from the other housemates has been close to bullying.

"Big brother is so cliquey, only genuine people are Kim and Jedward, who are being isolated and bullied by the 'popular' crowd #CBB" one viewer wrote.

Another claimed: "This lot has ganged up and bullied Jedward since they came in."

A third agreed: "Can't physically believe that #CBB is allowing Jedward to be bullied so badly. The group need to cool it, it's REALLY bad!"

As well as their fans, Jedward have also been supported by their former fellow X Factor finalists.

Olly Murs, who was runner up to Joe McElderry when Jedward were on The X Factor in 2009, said: "I'm bloody sick of all these idiots on #cbb digging out & ganging up on @planetjedward love um lived with them for 6 weeks they are harmless"

When another user asked if he could put up living with them, Olly quipped: "I did on xfactor for 7weeks!!"

Also supporting Jedward has been Stacey Solomon, who finished The X Factor third behind Olly.

"I lived with @planetjedward for 12 weeks in the Xfactor house & they're nothing but kind peaceful happy people hyper & crazy but I love them," she wrote.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5 ahead of the final this Friday.
