Big Brother’ presenters Emma Willis and Luisa Zissman have both weighed in on the controversy surrounding housemate Helen Wood, who was reprimanded for her “unacceptable behaviour” earlier this week.

Helen’s treatment of fellow housemate Jale Karaturp has made her unpopular with viewers, prompting some to brand her a “bully”, although there’s no sign of her going anywhere any time soon as in the first week she was given a fast pass to the final by Pauline Bennett.

Emma Willis has now said she thinks Big Brother should have her fast pass taken away from her if her “unacceptable behaviour” persists, and is quoted in The Sun saying: “If she does that again, I hope she gets a warning. Big Brother should take that pass to the final away from her.

“She’s getting more and more uncomfortable to watch. Helen has crossed the line.”

Meanwhile Luisa Zissman, who was recently made a regular panelist on ‘Big Brother’s Bit On The Side’, has also given her verdict on Helen.

Writing about Helen’s exchange with Big Brother in her latest column for the Daily Star, Luisa writes: “The most nauseating thing of all, she just wasn’t bothered. The flippant attitude towards her perceived treatment of Jale was perhaps even worse than the bullying itself.

“I hope we see Jale stand up for herself soon, but it’s easier said than done. No one should have to put up with what she's going through in that house.”

Jale is currently one of six housemates up for eviction on Friday night, after being chosen by Pauline earlier in the series to face the public vote every week until she eventually leaves the house.
