The TOWIE star only entered Celebrity Big Brother last night, but he's already made viewers angry...
Celebrity Big Brother has been on our screens for less than 24 hours, but it’s already causing controversy.
One contestant who’s got people talking is TOWIE‘s Lewis Bloor, who made his way into the house after revealing in his VT: ‘I’m really looking forward to seeing what birds are in there. I love a flirt. And it doesn’t hurt that I’m so easy on the eye.’
Host Emma Willis couldn’t help teasing him about this in his pre-entry interview. She joked that there may not be any attractive ladies awaiting him inside – but ended up receiving a pretty unexpected reply.
Lewis, 26, said: ‘Well you’re here, aren’t you?’ before adding: ‘You’ll do!’
Um, nice. As expected, Emma was less than impressed, responding: ‘I’ll do? What do you mean I’ll do? I’m married!’
As you probably know, Emma’s been married to Busted’s Matt Willis since 2008, and they have children Isabelle, seven, Ace four, and two-month-old Trixie together.
Lewis quickly tried to patch things up, saying: ‘Don’t worry, I’m only joking, I know you’re taken,’ but viewers were already venting on Twitter about the Essex lad.
Tweets included: ‘#cbb #lewis typical no respect #emma,’ and: ‘Did Lewis really just say ‘you’ll do’ to Emma ??? #CBB.’

Some were angry about the way he spoke about women in general, with one ranting: ‘Lewis Do Not refer to women as BIRDS you Moron.. #CBB he’s not interested in women Emma just birds give him a Budgie.. [sic].’
Eep. Let’s hope he can make up for his blunder while in the house, eh?
