Last night saw a major bust up between Chanelle McCleary and Kayleigh that ended with Kayleigh being ejected from the show completely.
The minor squabble began in the kitchen but quickly escalated, with Chanelle tipping over a glass and kicking a chair at Kayleigh, prompting her to react: “I’ll smash your face in!”
As the two girls squared up, Big Brother instructed the other housemates to split them up.
“Smash my face in? Come on then!” shouted Chanelle at Kayleigh from across the house.
“Silly f**king little c**t!” Kayleigh retorted.
As Chanelle was taken to the bedroom, Kayleigh went with Rebecca to the Diary Room where she fumed: “I’m going to f**king hurt her ten times harder than she’ll hurt me. She’s six times the size of me, f**king fat c**t.”
“Do you know how much I wanted to pick up a chair and smash it across her f**king face?”
She then threatened: “I’ll grab a sharp object and f**king smack her with it.”
Chanelle was given a formal warning for her part in the fight while Big Brother deemed Kayleigh’s remarks so unacceptable she was kicked out.
Speaking out today, Kayleigh defended her actions and claimed Chanelle should have been the one to go.
“I was just defending myself against Chanelle,” Kayleigh said. “I had no warning or final warning yet she’s demonstrated aggressive physical behaviour in the last 13 days.
“I don’t play games. What I said in the diary room is what I told or would have then told the person.”
She told The Sun newspaper: “Too many people are quick to judge an outspoken individual but would be the first to be asked to fight their corner when needed. P***** me off.”
And Kayleigh complained: “It’s also really frustrating as I had so many happy times in the house but only the bad parts were aired, which I guess is the nature of the beast, but still…”
Although most backed Big Brother’s decision to remove Kayleigh, some viewers did question how Chanelle remained in the house after the row.
“Kayleigh’s behaviour is no worse than Chanelle”s. Either remove both or none! #BigBrother,” tweeted @liannemason1981.
“So glad Kayleigh has been removed. Awful individual. Not sure how Chanelle got away with it though #bbuk,” added @Ribbonrocks.
