Big Brother host Brian Dowling has described the 2012 series as “the bitchiest and nastiest” house in the show’s history.
During the series, which comes to its conclusion this evening, the housemates split into two groups known by viewers as the in- and outsiders.
The usual bitching, gossiping and gameplaying reached new levels between these groups as they worked to get their opposite numbers eviction, and former housemate turned presenter Brian claims he would have walked had he been put in the house with the current group.
He told the Daily Star: “I do believe this has been the bitchiest, nastiest and most backstabbing house we’ve ever had. They absolutely hate one another.
“I seriously think if I had been a housemate this year I would have walked. I couldn’t have lasted.”
Tonight’s series finale is a battle between three outsiders, one insider and a floater, something which previously evicted insiders appear to be quite bitter about.
“This is disgusting! Disgracefull! Worst final in Big Brother history!” claimed Conor on Twitter, a view echoed by Rebecca on her own account.
Caroline has also hit out at the public, posting: “Fuming the general public/studio audience/people that vote r clearly f****** moronic deluded t**** with no concept of reality/sense of humour.”
Continuing his interview, Brian said: “When they have come out of the house and I’ve interviewed them and shown them the footage, there is no remorse. I have pushed and pushed them, but they just go ‘Hey, that’s me. I’m young and I’m a bitch’.”
“But fair play to the producers. This lot did deliver the drama,” he added.
