Last year's winner Helen Wood is in hot water after a blazing row led to her comparing another past winner Brian Belo to a rapist and a murderer

Series eight winner Belo clashed on a number of occasions with last year’s victor Helen.

And after another showdown between the pair, in which she said he looked like a “murderer” and “a rapist”, the 27-year-old scaled the walls of the house and left.

Wood said: "Brian you look like a rapist, you look like a murderer, murderer slash rapist."

“Brian Belo has left the Big Brother House. He left of his own accord,” a show spokesperson confirmed. Helen then received an official warning from show bosses. 

The incident generated over 1,000 complaints to UK broadcasting watchdog Ofcom.

Speaking in the Diary Room before he left the house, Brian, 27, confessed: "I feel like I'm being ganged up on. I don't want to cry. I've tried to keep away from there. I shouldn't have come back here. This is really hard. I feel like I'm living in hell. I'm defeated. I'm getting a barrage of abuse."

The pair had previously clashed when Helen branded Brian an "ungrateful b*****d" and a "psycho".

She said: "You're here for the money. Ungrateful bastard. At least I'm not fake."

To which Brian replied: "You're pond scum. You're like the Dementors from Harry Potter."

Belo's departure opened the door for Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace to enter the house.

However, she won’t be approaching Helen in the Big Brother house.

“I won’t be approaching Helen as she intimidates me but if I see her targeting someone else I definitely won’t hold back and I will be telling her to know herself,” she said according to British newspaper The Mirror. “I like to call her the spawn of Satan; she is just a b***h and is horrible to everyone.”

Aisleyne's return will be seen on Thursday night's episode.

The 36-year-old glamour model, who first appeared on the reality TV show in 2006, will re-enter the house during the current series' upcoming Time Warp Twist tomorrow night.

Speaking about her decision to appear on the show again, the blonde beauty said: "I feel completely honoured. I feel the house is surrounded with a lot of negativity and there is a dark cloud over the house. I want to go in and bring positivity and fun. I feel like it's my house and I want to bring it back to life."

Helen, 28, recently claimed she would spit in Aisleyne's face if she ever re-entered the house after being shown images of previous contestants.

But Aisleyne, who says she is celibate at the moment but looking for romance, is hoping to "inject some fun" into the current series.

She said: "I wanted to go back as it was such a great experience and I can see it is really negative in there at the moment so I want to inject some fun. I want to make them play games, have a drink and kiss each other.

"I want to just enjoy it and have as much fun as possible. I want it to be a really positive experience for everyone."
