A third penned: “No, they’re being childish and threatening to cut Chanelle off from their pathetic little group for talking to Noky.”

A fourth agreed: “Yup I think it is- call the police.”

A fifth added: “Their body language is disgusting and so disrespectful ITV needs to step in. This is unacceptable!!”

It comes after Big Brother bosses were forced to secretly put the house on lockdown recently amid an explosive fight night.

Tension erupted in the TV spy house after a string of high-octane format twists including a surprise midweek eviction, public nominations and tricky challenges where the housemates have fallen into two bitterly rival camps. 

Viewers watched intense action as it aired on ITV’s edited episode but The Sun revealed the actions terrified bosses took behind the scenes.

Worried execs forced the two groups apart and locked one half into the bedroom to keep feisty Paul, who was behind the angry outburst, and Trish away from each other. 

After leaving the housemates in lockdown for over an hour, execs were able to calm down a raging Paul. 

A source said: “Everyone talks about Fight Night in 2004 but no one expected this year’s sanitised cohort to be a contender for Fight Night 2.0.
