Samantha Fox reveals she was 'nearly blinded' by Bear in scenes cut from the Celebrity Big Brother


Samantha Fox said she was relieved to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house after an incident with Stephen Bear which had left her needing to see medics.

She said that on Monday Bear had played a "magic trick" on her in which he sprayed water into her eye and dislodged her contact lens.

She said: "He really hurt my eye and I couldn't open it for about four hours. I had to see a medic and the membrane has been... yeah, it was horrible."

The former Page Three girl told host Emma Willis she was forced to wear an eye-patch for "half a day".

She asked Emma if viewers had been shown him "nearly blinding me", to which the host replied, "It hasn't been out yet."

"It happened yesterday," Sam said.

"Then no, we haven't seen that," replied Emma.

A Channel 5 spokeswoman confirmed that the medics were called but said the footage was not aired on Tuesday as it was a shorter show due to the double eviction.

Viewers quickly began to wonder why Channel 5 had chosen not to air the footage.

It sparked conspiracy theories that the show was attempting to protect Bear.

Fans asked whether it should have got him a final warning.

Sam said Bear had continued to ruin her time in the house by throwing a custard pie in Aubrey O'Day's face in a task that will be aired on Wednesday night for viewers.

She said: "What he did today with his custard pie earlier ruined today. Aubrey, she'd done all her make-up and everything, he put one right in her face."

Sam claimed "putting up with Bear" had been the most challenging part of being in the house.

"I found it easier than I thought it would be... but it was hell, " she admitted.

"It's not been hard work, it's just been a challenge to get through the day without Bear disrupting anything and causing aggro."

Sam was evicted alongside Katie Waissel.
