People Are Calling These Guys "Creepy" For Their Treatment Of A Drunk Co-Star On "CBB"

People are saying that Jamie O'Hara and Calum Best were "creepy" and "took advantage" of a visibly drunk Nicola McLean in scenes that made for extremely uncomfortable viewing on Celebrity Big Brother.

Celebrity Big Brother may have been back on our screens for only a week, but already drama is brewing.

But this drama was a certainty when it was revealed that former glamour model Nicola McLean and footballer Jamie O'Hara would both be housemates.

The pair have known each other for years through their tumultuous relationships with other people. Jamie O'Hara was married to glamour model Danielle Lloyd, who knew Nicola from their modelling days. Jamie and Danielle divorced in 2014 after he cheated on her. Jamie also knows Nicola's footballer husband, Tom Williams. Nicola and Tom's relationship has been on the rocks for the past couple of years. They split in 2015 amid rumours of his infidelity, but have recently reunited.

Oh and then there was the addition of renowned ~bad boy~ Calum Best, who immediately made friends with Jamie after entering the CBB house.

On Monday night's episode, we saw the housemates being supplied with alcohol and things got...well...uncomfortable.

It didn't take long for Nicola to become visibly drunk, and as the rest of the housemates chatted among themselves, she and Jamie began flirting. Things began with Jamie telling Nicola that he "loved" her.

Nicola, who apparently had a "three-drink rule" before entering the house, then asked Jamie to "look after" her that evening.

Channel 5

To which Jamie responded: "You know I've got your back."

Channel 5

And told Nicola she was "amazing."

Channel 5

He then told her he loved her a second time, while kissing her cheek.

Channel 5

At this point, Calum, who had been watching the whole thing, lowered his voice and told Jamie to kiss Nicola.

Channel 5

As Jamie moved in to kiss her cheek again, Calum discreetly murmured: "No no, on the lips."

Channel 5

And asked Jamie to let him watch.

Channel 5

He repeatedly told Jamie to kiss her "on the lips."

Channel 5

Jamie said that he'd "love to" but had "too much respect" for Nicola's husband.

And Calum made this clarification.

But Jamie continued to hug and kiss Nicola.

Channel 5

Before this uncomfortable moment, in which he poured his wine into her glass.

Channel 5

Nicola noticed and asked him not to.

Channel 5

But he carried on anyway.

Channel 5

Nicola then turned to fellow housemate James Jordan and told him she felt drunk. He assured her that he'd let her know when she'd "had too much".

Channel 5

Calum then reached out for a hug, and motioned for Nicola to kiss his cheek.

Channel 5

But he turned his head at the last minute so she ended up inadvertently kissing him on the lips.

Channel 5

Nicola pulled back and said: "Don't do that to me."

Channel 5

Jamie stepped in to reassure her that they all "love" her.

Channel 5

And kissed her a bit more.

Channel 5

At this point, Nicola and James went into the house to use the bathroom – and he made this suggestion.

Channel 5

But the next shot we saw was Nicola in bed, with a topless Jamie next to her. She asked him if she'd taken her contact lenses out, as she was too drunk to remember.

Channel 5

Jamie couldn't tell. But he then made this observation.

Channel 5

And asked if she wanted him to help her get undressed and ready for bed.

Channel 5

All the while, Calum was watching and encouraging Jamie.

Channel 5

And the episode ended with Nicola saying, "Fuck. What have I done?"

Channel 5

People immediately took to Twitter to express how uncomfortable they'd found the episode.

Many suggested that Calum and Jamie had attempted to take advantage of Nicola.

Others were thankful that James Jordan had stepped in to suggest Nicola went to bed.

Which had prevented anything more awkward happening.

Others said that Jamie's behaviour was "odd".

And that Nicola should've simply been put to bed and left alone.

Others found the way he'd topped Nicola's glass up with his own wine uncomfortable.

With lots of people suggesting the move was "creepy".

The word "creep" was used to describe Calum, too.

Other people anticipated the response to the episode being sexist.

And people did suggest that Nicola was in the wrong, because she's married.

Others, however, just found the whole thing intensely cringeworthy.

We wonder what tonight's episode will bring.
