Celebrity Big Brother bosses have been in touch with the police, after trolls made serious death threats to housemate Lee Ryan.
The former Blue singer lost a number of fans after leading on Casey and flirting with Jasmine. He has been dubbed a womaniser and a sex pest, with the mother of his child bashing him for acting like a porn star.
Some viewers have become so outraged by Lee’s antics, that they’ve threatened to cause him harm when he leaves the house. One Twitter user wrote:
You say you like damaged girls – I’m going to damage you when you come out of the house #stabyou #damage.
While another said:
I’ll be waiting on the outside for you #stabyou
Lee’s terrified management team contacted the police, who are working with the producers of the show to make sure Lee is protected when he leaves the house.
A show source said:
Security will be extra tight. Whenever a housemate is hated this much, every measure possible is taken to make sure they’re safe. For all we know, someone in the crowd could be plotting to stab him when he leaves. We can’t risk that happening.
It’s not that serious guys…
