Katie Waissel threatened to quit Celebrity Big Brother after finding out she was up for eviction.

The former X Factor hopeful had a meltdown and demanded to leave the house after discovering that pal Frankie Grande had put her up for the chop.

She talked about it with Frankie – who is the brother of US pop star Ariana Grande – and other housemates, but broke down in tears after they told her there had been some discussion about her being “unstable” and “weak”.

Shouting “Wow” at the top of her voice, Katie sought refuge in the bathroom before storming off to the Diary Room.

She told Big Brother: “Can you please get me my things? I want to get the fuck out. Now.”

Katie insisted she did not want to be on camera and stood off to the side rather than sitting on the chair.

She repeated her desire to leave, saying: “I am sick to death of being made a fucking fool out of.”

However, Big Brother managed to calm her down.

Katie is facing the public vote alongside Frankie, Samantha Fox, Marnie Simpson and Ricky Norwood, after they all received at least one nomination from their fellow housemates.

Ex On The Beach star Stephen Bear is also up. He faces the public vote every week because he has an eternal nomination.

Samantha also appeared to be upset about being nominated but said she would try to take it “as a compliment”.

“They see me as a threat and it is a competition at the end of the day,” she said, as she sat in the smoking area.

American contestants Renee Graziano and Aubrey O’Day are the only housemates who are safe, after neither of them received a single nomination.

Celebrity Big Brother is broadcast on Channel 5 at 9pm.
