Security 'stepped up' at Celebrity Big Brother after threats to Chloe Khan
Celebrity Big Brother producers have reportedly increased security measures due to online abuse directed at housemate Chloe Khan.
The 25-year-old model has shocked viewers with her lewd behaviour on the Channel 5 show, including regularly stripping off and romping with fellow contestant Stephen Bear.
Her X-rated antics have included letting Stephen lick chocolate off her chest.
Chloe, who had her first brush with fame appearing on ITV singing contestant The X Factor in 2010, faces the public vote deciding who will be evicted from the house on Friday night (12Aug16) alongside Stephen, veteran broadcaster James Whale, and Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson.
According to editors at Britain's Daily Star newspaper, the show's producers have stepped up security measures fearing a hate mob if Chloe is evicted after Twitter users directed angry abuse at her.
Posters on the social media site have described the mum-of-one as "trash", "scum", a "w**re" and criticised her for setting a bad example to her 8-year-old daughter Destiny.
Chloe's behaviour has also caused friction with her housemates, including a feud with Renee Graziano, a star of U.S. reality show Mob Wives.
The feud took a shocking turn when the daughter of convicted mobster Anthony Graziano made what appeared to be a violent threat towards the model.
Speaking to American singer-songwriter Aubrey O'Day, Renee, who used special dispensation to put Chloe up for eviction, said she would show her, "exactly what a Mob Wife does, the guns are out kid."
Former glamour model Sam Fox also expressed her discomfort at Chloe and Ex On The Beach star Stephen's steamy antics, saying, "‘Call me a prude, well I am. I don’t like seeing it."
The first part of Friday night's live eviction show airs on the U.K.'s Channel 5 from 9pm to 10pm, with its second part beginning at 10.30pm.
