Sexual harassment claims: The housemates were locked in numerous rooms while Big Brother calmed the location down

And the rapper went directly to detail how Big Brother then separated the home in to 2 groups to maintain the feuding contestants clear of one another.

Romeo was installed with Gareth Thomas, Frankie and Denise, who he said was ‘crying and hysterical’.

He then reveals BB locked the bedroom with them in it, adding: ‘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.’

Nicola has also spread out in regards to the fight night, insisting that she desired to stick up for the twins because she knows what it’s desire to be a glamour model and other people thinking they are able to touch them how they please.

But she insists the sisters took it too far after they started hurling sexual assault accusations at former X Factor bad boy Frankie.

She tells the Daily Star: ‘He didn’t sexually harass anyone. I didn’t find him offensive. He behaved exactly how a 19-year-old lad would in a home with Playboy twins and models.’

But Nicola’s adamant she doesn’t regret stepping in and sticking up for the women: ‘Gareth and Romeo and Denise were installed the bedroom with Frankie. We were in another room. It didn’t get physical though.

‘There was no physical stuff. On the time it was nasty but I don’t regret what I did.’
