The former This Morning host has been at loggerheads with the Love Island star

Fern Britton and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu have been butting heads lately in Celebrity Big Brother and tonight it all seems to take its toll on Britton.

In a sneak peek posted on Celebrity Big Brother’s X account, a clip from the upcoming episode showed the television presenter breaking down in tears.

Viewers and other famous faces who have tuned into the series have been vocal about their disapproval of Cülcüloğlu's behaviour, with the reality srar frequently being branded branded a “game-player” throughout the week.

She was also accused by former Strictly Come Dancing star Layton Williams of flirting with Nikita Kuzmin despite knowing he’s in a relationship.

He advised the former Love Island star to "read the room" during Celebrity Big Brother: Late and Live after she talked to Louis Walsh about the dancer before complimenting him while he was getting changed.

Williams commented on the interaction between the pair, admitting: "That was awkward. At first I was like fair play because she said he has a girlfriend...

“But by the way, just because someone has a partner, it doesn’t mean they like you also, So I don’t like that kind of angle portrayed….

"But then she went into the room while he was changing, give the boy some privacy!”

The drama then escalated on Thursday’s episode as the 29-year-old clashed with several housemates, including Britton.

In the preview clip shared on the show’s official account, Britton becomes upset while reflecting on how her time on the show could be over soon.

Cülcüloğlu wasn't happy when her housemates nominated her


Getting tearful, she tells Big Brother: “It’s been… I don’t want to cry. It’s been magical.”

Tonight will see a double elimination and following last night’s instalment, those at risk are Louis Walsh, Levi Roots, David Potts, Britton and Cülcüloğlu.

The celebrities had to give their nominations in front of each other on Thursday, and after being voted by several housemates, Cülcüloğlu was far from happy.

Fans accused her of being “narcissistic” and hypocritical as she’d voted for Britton herself.

Walsh also voted for Ekin-Su, which further angered the Love Island star


The reality star accused Britton of not asking enough questions about her, despite the fact Britton was recently scolded by Cülcüloğlu for brining up Love Island.

Explaining her vote, Britton candidly stated: “This is because we are talking about playing the game. I have asked you plenty of questions, but sometimes, well a lot of the time the answer hasn’t’ been… particularly enlightening and you’re right, I don’t know much about you.

“So I don’t get you, you don’t get me, that’s fine. That is the way it is. I sometimes think you are wearing a mask and I think that you might absorb a lot of people's personalities very quickly.

“And you’re good at judging situations. It’s mean, but I feel the danger, and I feel that I don’t know the real you and that, that has disappointed me and disturbed me.”
