There’s a battle of the ‘Big Brother’ winners taking place on Twitter at the moment, with Denise Welch becoming embroiled in a war of words with the series’ most recent champion, Helen Wood.

Throughout this summer’s ‘BB’, which ended with Helen shocking everyone by being crowned winner on Friday night, Denise has been heavily critical of Helen’s treatment of her other housemates, branding her a “bully” on Twitter and calling for Channel 5 to take away her free pass to the final.

Over the weekend, Helen took some time out from retweeting every nice comment that was thrown her way and referenced Denise’s turbulent time in the ‘CBB’ house back in 2012, in an interview with the Daily Star.

She said: “I shouldn’t really respond to someone like Denise Welch when she’s in her 50s and she goes on Big Brother, gets absolutely lashed and gets in hot tubs with teenage boys with her t**s out.

“I’m not going to comment on somebody like that. She’s entitled to her opinion.”

Meanwhile, Helen has since hit out at her detractors who have branded her a “bully” on Twitter, writing:

While some of her fellow housemates have stuck up for Helen since the series ended on Friday, Danielle McMahon has been less complimentary, claiming on Twitter that Helen is “vile” and that her win was a “total injustice”.
