Celebrity Big Brother viewers have expressed their frustration and anger at Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding after she broke down in tears and said she felt she had been “lured into a lion’s den”.
The pop star left viewers annoyed when they felt she “played the victim card” on Wednesday night’s episode of the reality show.
After asking Big Brother if she could speak to her agent, which was denied, she said: “I feel like I’ve been lured into a lion’s den.
“If I’m happy I’m shot down, if I’m sad I’m shot down. I feel like I’m becoming more and more isolated.”
Speaking about her romance with Bachelorette star Chad Johnson, she added: “Only one person had my back which is why we got too close.
“If I hadn’t come here none of this would have happened, none of these dramas.
“Happy, bubbly Sarah is day by day diminishing.”
One fan wrote on Twitter: “#cbbsarah has made the worst decision of her life entering #cbbuk- someone save her from herself! Sad viewing.”
Another wrote: “#SarahHarding you’re making a mockery of yourself love. Sorry. But it’s not all about you,” while another said: “Sarahnharding is all ME,ME,ME She really needs to get over herself!!” and another added: “Sarah plays the victim card way too much. It’s getting irritating now.”
Others criticised the show for giving Harding too much air time.
One viewer said: “bored now of big brother becoming “THE SARAH HARDING SHOW” . there are more house mates than just her !” as another wrote: “Wish #CBBUK wasn’t all about the Sarah show, all she cares about is herself, how she’s coming across on the outside and how to win.”
