Tabloid favourite Stephanie Davis threatened to punch Gemma Collins after the pair exchanged a tirade of abuse on Celebrity Big Brother as the ex-Hollyoaks actress’ flirtathon with fellow housemate Jeremy McConnell hit rock bottom.
Stephanie, who left the soap in a flurry of headlines about her private life last year, found herself on the end of The Only Way Is Essex (Towie) stalwart Gemma’s sharp tongue amid accusations she was cheating on her boyfriend with Irish reality TV personality Jeremy.
Gemma hit out at Stephanie, after catching the 22-year-old Liverpudlian actress in bed with Jeremy.
The former Towie regular said: “It’s so wrong what you’re doing, you’ve got a boyfriend.
“I think you’re acting like an absolute disgrace.”
But the embattled actress took offence to the advice, and replied: “Gem, who the f*** are you trying to speak to me like that?
“I can’t wait for you to see yourself when you’re out of here like what a horrible monster you are. Your attitude stinks, you’re a diva and that’s why no-one’s ever liked you.
“Who are you? You’re off Towie. What’s your talent? Nothing.”
Earlier, Jeremy told Stephanie he was not going to be her “dog” as speculation about their relationship blossomed – despite Stephanie having a boyfriend on the outside.
He said: “If you respected me and actually liked me you’d just walk out and leave me be.
“The affection s*** needs to stop. I’m finished. It’s like you want your cake and you want to eat it.”
In a frank admission, Stephanie admitted she “took it too far, being close to Jeremy”.
She said: “I’ll never be able to forgive myself.”
Speaking to Big Brother in the diary room, Stephanie said: “If you let me back in that house I’m gonna end up doing something I regret.
“Either if that’s punching Gemma Collins in the face, which she deserves. She’s a f***ing diva … People that do like her need to give their head a wobble because she’s disgusting.”
Earlier, David Bowie’s ex-wife Angie decided that she was going to leave the house and began packing her case. She later changed her mind.
She told Big Brother: “I’m sorry I’m so cranky, but when I don’t sleep I just, that’s it.”
Contestants Nancy Dell’Olio and Winston McKenzie have been evicted, while Jonathan Cheban walked out on the series.
