After more than three weeks locked away from the outside world and under the constant gaze of the British public, sexual tensions are reaching boiling point in the Big Brother house.
Following the tumultuous events earlier this week when the producers sent Emma and Michelle back into the house passions of a different kind are getting the better of some of the housemates.
Male stripper, Jay, was forced to take matters into his own hands yesterday after Vanessa rejected his advances. This provoked a frank discussion among the housemates about some of the more challenging aspects of taking part in the hit show.
Ratings have been much higher this year following Channel Four's promise to get "evil" with the contestants.
Emma and Michelle spent the first half of last week in a specially constructed bed-sit where they could watch and listen to the other housemates.
When they were let back into the house on Wednesday night they had more than one or two bones to pick. Channel Four was forced to cut the live feed after all hell broke lose and the situation threatened to descend into violence.
The row was still the main talking point yesterday, with Victor, who was involved in a spat with dizzy Emma admitting that he was disappointed with the way he had behaved.
Emma has been sent back to the bed-sit and has been warned that she will be thrown off the show altogether if she breaks any more rules. Her former bed-sit buddy Michelle meanwhile is picking up where she left off with love interest Stewart.
Last night's eviction was cancelled as a result of the recent events.
