CBB's Samantha's reaction to her nomination caused quite a stir on social media last night. But it looks like there's something we didn't see...
Last night’s Celebrity Big Brother saw face-to-face nominations and – yup, you guessed it – there was a lot of drama.
As a result, Stephen Bear (who’s been cursed with eternal nomination), Lewis Bloor, James Whale, Ricky Norwood and Samantha Fox find themselves facing the public vote for a double eviction on Friday night.
And it’s safe to say that Samantha didn’t really take the news too well…
Bear was one that had put the former glamour model forward, claiming that she was always ‘on the fence’ and ‘brought nothing to the house’.
Sam branded him a ‘w*****’ and complained to her fellow housemates that his reasoning was ‘unfair’.
The Ex On The Beach star then went on to tell her: ‘Get over it now mate! Is it me or are you taking it real bad here? You’re embarrassing yourself, it’s getting nasty.’
Speaking to Ricky and Aubrey, she later revealed: ‘Great Britain does love Sam Fox! I’ve never had any trolls!
‘I’ve been in the business 35 years, they know me as the girl done good. They call me Our Sam!
‘I’m a good girl, I’ve always been nice and fair.’
Social media had quite a bit to say on the subject, with her name soon trending. Reactions included:

Now, reports have emerged that Celebrity Big Brother decided not to air scenes that showed Samantha’s ‘meltdown’ earlier this week.
According to the Daily Star, the CBB housemate suffered an anxiety attack, and producers were forced to intervene.
An insider allegedly told the publication: ‘Sam was not well at all. She was called to the diary room because they were concerned about her health.
‘She had a full-blown panic attack. It got pretty serious and they were genuinely concerned.
‘Medics were sent in to make sure she was OK and not at serious risk. They even had to give her medication to help her calm down.’
This is the second time during the series that Channel 5 have been questioned over ‘covering up’ activity in the house.
Christopher Biggins was removed from the house for ‘offensive’ comments, but many of the opinions that contributed to his removal didn’t get aired.
He told The Sun: ‘I think Channel 5 were trying to protect me by not screening it.
‘I think it’s unfortunate that someone has decided to leak the story. Then they had to do something.’
We’re sad to hear that Samantha was unwell, and we’re glad to see she’s okay now.
