Things escalate in Wednesday night’s (22 June) show, when Natalie takes a bottle of wine from Ryan Ruckledge’s hands, while he’s in the middle of pouring.
Laura Carter is quick to confront Natalie, who knocks Laura’s hand away in the middle of the row, at which point Ryan involves himself, branding Natalie a “horror”.
Big Brother then calls Natalie to the Diary Room over the incident, to remove her from the situation, where she tells producers: “They clearly don’t like me! I’ve been trying my best. It’s like I’m their target.”
Natalie ends up sleeping in the spare bedroom, away from the rest of the group, although Sam Giffen later notes that she may not have been the only one in the wrong.
He tells the group: “I know what Natalie did was wrong but I did feel that people went crazy at her. I thought Ryan was going to swing for her! He was far too in her face, I felt a bit sorry for her.
“She had no choice but to move Laura’s hand out her way, it was her first reaction. She’s not a bad person.”
Natalie is eventually called to the Diary Room and issued with a formal warning over the incident.
She isn’t the first of this year’s contestants to be given a telling off, with Big Brother previously reprimanding Marco Pierre White Jr over his behaviour towards Laura.
See the action unfold in Wednesday’s (22 June) ‘BB’, kicking off at 10pm on Channel 5.
