Celebrity Big Brother’s Chloe Ferry has been accused of “sexual assault”
Celebrity Big Brother‘s Chloe Ferry has been criticised for “sexual assault” after her nonconsensual physical advances on Jedward last night.
During last night’s highlights show, viewers witnessed Chloe undress and rub herself against a clearly uncomfortable John (from Jedward).
As the Geordie Shore star came out of the shower, she cornered her housemate as he did his hair in the bathroom mirror.
John made verbal objections to Chloe’s behaivour, saying: “Oh God, oh God, what are you doing?! What are you doing to us?!”
He continued: “Jeez, I can”t even look at you right now.”
Chloe carried on, however, and responded: “This is what you call a real girl, that’s a real woman’s bum.”
“It’s just been washed!”
The reality television star was later given a formal warning by Big Brother for the “uninvited physical contact.”
Big Brother explained: “Invading people’s space is unacceptable and Big Brother would suggest your refrain from this sort of behaviour.”
Although Chloe apologised and insisted that it had just been a “joke”, many CBB viewers were left angered and upset by the scenes.
Fans took to Twitter to accuse Chloe of “sexual assault”:
What Chloe did to John was highly unacceptable and actually sexual assault #cbb

If one of the men did to one of the girls, what Chloe did to John, it would be called sexual assault #CBB

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
