A sneak preview promises plenty of drama in tonight's episode of the ITV reality show

Sharon Osbourne has been a staple feature of this year’s newly-revived Celebrity Big Brother, with the show even providing her with her own section of the house to live in by herself during her five-day stint.

In Monday’s sneak peek of the episode, another perk Osbourne, 71, has been granted sparked some outrage as fans accused the show of giving the former X Factor judge “special treatment”.

In a clip from tonight’s episode posted on Celebrity Big Brother’s official X account, Osbourne is given some news.

“Sharon, today the housemates will nominate. Big Brother is allowing you to watch all of the housemates nominations from the privacy of your bedroom,” Big Brother told the TV personality.

It continued: “You are not permitted to tell the other housemates about watching nominations or anything about this conversation.”

Osbourne is then seen watching some of the votes, reacting as Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu explains: “I’ve come from a show called Love Island - I’ve lived and breathed drama and bitchiness. I’m done with it.”

Lauren Simon is then seen stating: “She’s never once asked me anything and I think it’s really, really showing her true colours.”

“Oh… Wow,” Osbourne remarks in response before watching Fern Britton comment: “I never quite know… what’s, how she is going to be.”

“Aw, that’s hurtful,” Osbourne states at one point which watching the footage.

Her former X Factor co-star Louis Walsh then takes a brutal swipe at Britton, remarking: “Fern is just there, she’s like wallpaper. It’s not brining anything. Who can we do without? Its Fern.”

The sneak clip ends with the other housemates finding out what Osbourne has been up to.

The unsuspecting housemates all seem stunned as they’re informed in an announcement: “This is Big Brother. Earlier today, you nominated for the second time for the housemate that you wish to face the next public vote.

“However, that’s not all. Big Brother has allowed Sharon to watch all nominations. Big Brother is granting you the power to save one housemate from the public vote.”

Meanwhile, eager fans who caught the preview were quick to complain about the show giving Osbourne “special treatment”.

One penned on X: “Sorry, but I don't like BB messing with nominations like this. The votes should stand as they were originally cast.”

“Why are constantly seeing Sharon getting special treatment? This sort of stuff ruined C4 version so why do it again ffs? Sooner she goes the better,” another fumed.

A third added: “I love how Sharon has held the power right from the start of the series - from nominations right through to bombshell revelations. This is why I really hoped she'd become a full time housemate. I'll miss her when she leaves this week.”

“She shouldn’t be able to save, but she should be able to tell who voted who after it’s revealed who’s up,” a fourth suggested.

“So ready for all the chaos with this,” another shared, while a sixth wrote: “I bet Sharon is really feeling the pressure now! That’s such a weight hanging over her shoulders!”

Sharon has been candid in sharing her bold opinions on the show, not holding back in criticising the likes of James Corden or Adele.
