Celebrity Big Brother: House In Lockdown After Denise Welch Bad Behaviour

Nicola Mclean and Romeo Dunn have revealed what really happened in the Celebrity Big Brother house after Benidorm star Denise Welch pulled down Playboy twin Karissa Shannon's pants.

Glamour model Nicola and So Solid Crew rapper Romeo were both evicted from the house earlier this week and they have since admitted that the house was split in two by TV bosses following the bust up.

Loose Women panellist Denise, 53, infuriated Karissa, 22, when she exposed her behind after pulling down her trousers as a joke. The star was issued a warning by Big Brother over the incident after American Karissa threatened to sue.

Speaking to the Daily Star, gentlemanly Romeo said: "I was in the garden when it kicked off.

"One minute the girls were all dancing and singing Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and then it exploded.

"Karissa stormed into the garden and told me Denise had pulled her pants down and she was not happy. I thought it was a joke but the twins took offence.

"The next thing I went inside and everyone was shouting and screaming and swearing. Everyone was so angry and I knew it was going to be hard to calm this down.

"I'd only had one beer and was in control but I tried to stay out of it because I genuinely thought if I said anything it would seem that I was taking sides.

"Tensions had been building between Karissa, Kristina, Denise and Nicola and it just took that one thing to set it off.

"I was covering my ears and just found it hard to intervene when the women were fighting."

30-year-old glamour model Nicola claimed she joined the argument to stick up for Karissa and her twin sister Kristina.

She said: "I stepped in because I am an ex-Page 3 girl and have exposed my body for a living. Just because I have done that doesn't mean people have a right to lift my top up or pull my pants.

"I genuinely believe if a man had done that he would have been kicked out. However Denise shouted and screamed and swore at me.

"Tensions were running high. We had all had a glass of wine and we were missing home and missing our kids. Everyone was emotional."

Former X Factor contestant Frankie Cocozza stood up for Denise, causing the twins to turn on him.

Romeo said: "The twins came out of the diary room. They ran around shouting that they had told Big Brother they had asked for the police to come claiming he was sexually harassing them.

"Frankie had been flirting with them the whole time they had been there. But he was just being Frankie. And I think that night they were just plucking at reasons to kick off.

"They had a dislike for him. Any ammo they had on him they threw it up that night. Frankie was just Frankie and he took it on the chin.

"He went to the diary room to talk to Big Brother about it. I think deep down he wasn't worried about being arrested."

Nicola added: "He didn't sexually harass anyone. I didn't find him offensive. He behaved exactly how a 19-year-old lad would in a house with Playboy twins and models. I never had a go at him. We got on great."

However, Nicola and Romeo revealed that show execs were so worried the argument would spiral out of control they put the house on lockdown.

Nicola said: "Big Brother stepped in and I got placed in the bedroom with Gareth and Frankie and Denise. The twins, Nicola and Michael were in another room.

"We did our best to calm Denise down. She was crying and hysterical. Then they locked the bedroom so we couldn't get out and the others couldn't get in. It was to calm Denise down and separate us.

"I could hear Big Brother talking over the tannoy to the twins, Nicola and Michael. I couldn't make out what was being said. It was a crazy night. It took until about 1.30am before it all calmed down.

"Big Brother then turned the lights off so we could sleep. Then not long after they allowed the others in. I was dreading the next day and the days to come. Big Brother then spoke to everyone one by one about the incident and how we all felt."
