Celebrity Big Brother's Ryan Thomas continues to have a rough time in the house, as he's now got involved in a series of clashes with Hardeep Singh Kohli.


Ryan has been deeply embattled in recent days after being accused by former housemate Roxanne Pallett of hitting her. Roxanne has since apologised outside the house, but Ryan has no knowledge of that.

The former Coronation Street actor has also been battling bad health in recent days, possibly because of an undercooked chicken prepared by Hardeep earlier this week.

When that possibility was brought up to Hardeep in Tuesday's (September 4) episode, Ryan tried to explain that he wasn't blaming Hardeep in any way for mishandling the chicken.

An angry Hardeep still stormed off, complaining: "These f**king children don't understand, do they?"

The tension only got worse after Hardeep survived the surprise eviction later in the evening, and made light of Sally Morgan wearing high-heeled shoes even though she had a bunion.

"I don't know how you walk in those shoes with that massive bunion," he joked.

The situation unexpectedly kicked off when Sally went into the house and repeated the joke to Ryan, who took offence to Hardeep speaking to her in that way. Moments later, he went out to the garden to clear the air.

"I don't agree with a man speaking to a woman in that," Ryan told him, with Hardeep countering: "You see it as a gender issue, rather than a human issue… She's a human being."

"There's a certain etiquette around a woman," Ryan argued. "I've been brought up, as a man, to respect my women!"

"Clearly, I don't hold much stock with you and you don't hold me in particularly high regard," Hardeep countered, "if you think that I'd launch in and say that."

Ryan then admitted that if he had his facts mixed up, that he'd admit it and "hold his hands up" but Hardeep chose to walk away rather than escalate the situation further.

The row was rather divisive, with many viewers - including some very famous ones - siding with Hardeep rather than Ryan:











Ryan had his supporters as well:





It was a hugely emotional episode for Ryan because he'd earlier received a letter from his Love Island star brother Scott letting him know that the public supported him over the Roxanne Pallett punch drama.

Celebrity Big Brother continues on Wednesday (September 5) at 9pm on Channel 5, followed by Bit on the Side at 11pm presented by Rylan Clark-Neal with all of the day's fallout.
