Celebrity Big Brother housemates Fern Britton has called Ekin-Su Culculoglu dangerous and disturbing as she voted her for eviction in face-to-face nominations.

The celebrities were forced to confront one another in surprise face-to-face nominations and the tensions were high with a spat breaking out between Culculogu and Broadway star Marisha Wallace.

Britton and Culculogu now faces eviction, along with David Potts, Levi Roots and Louis Walsh.

What, how, and why?

The housemates were given a funfair themed party in the garden to celebrate being halfway through their time in the Big Brother house. But in the middle of the fun and games it was revealed they had to nominate face-to-face in the Kissing Booth, planting a kiss on the cheek of the two housemates they had chosen.

The confrontational process was tense and difficult for many of the housemates - with Heartstopper actor Bradley Riches and Strictly Come Dancing star Nikita Kuzmin in tears before they had even placed their votes.

Culculogu was third to nominate. Like many of the housemates she chose 71-year-old Walsh because he does not help out with household chores.

She then nominated Britton saying: "The reason I nominate Fern is I haven't had that deep conversations, I feel like Fern hasn't asked me personal questions about my life and so isn't interested about me as a housemate."

Britton was next to nominate. She chose Walsh and Culculogu. Britton said: "This is because we are talking about playing the game. I have asked lots of questions and a lot of time the answer hasn't been particularly enlightening. I don't get you, you don't get me. I think you are wearing a mask. It's mean but I feel the danger and I feel don't know the real you and that has disappointed me and disturbed me." Giving the Love Island star a kiss she whispered "You're brilliant". Culculogu rolled her eyes.

Wallace also nominated Walsh and Culculogu. She said to the Love Island winner: "Because I know if I get to the final, I can't beat you. I know if you get to the final with me you will win the public vote, and if I want to win this I wouldn't have a chance against you."

Culculogu sighed: "That's not a reason." She went on: "I knew this was going to happen, this judging me because I was on f***ing show before. You've been close to me this whole time so you've been fake to me this whole time. I actually don't want a kiss."

Walsh said: "Good for you! Good girl."

Later Wallace tried to apologise to Culculogu defending her reasoning, but the Love Island winner shouted at her: "That means you really want to win! I need some space," and stormed off. Wallace then entered the bedroom where Culculogu was crying on the bed. She said: "All my life people have judged me and I don't think I can forgive you. I hope you win."

Later in the Diary Room Britton spoke about times she felt she had seen Culculogu putting on an act in the house. Britton said: "She came to me and said 'I've decided I'm not going to take anything you said to heart and I'm going to try very, very hard tomorrow to be nice.' And I thought you don't need to try, you can just be."

The housemates were gathered on the sofa and informed by Big Brother that there had been a rule break. Big Brother then read out conversations in which Walsh had discussed nominations and said everyone would nominated him, and Wallace had replied: "We will!"

Walsh insisted: "It was all innocent, it was just a flippant remark."
