Celebrity Big Brother housemate India Willoughby was at the centre of yet another debate after she claimed transgender women had been "drowned out by the LGBT narrative".

Big Brother viewers have started to turn against the 51-year-old transgender newsreader and now she has been nominated - along with Jonny Mitchell - for Friday's first eviction of the series.

Take a look below at Celebrity Big Brother fans praising Courtney on Twitter.

While in another she wrote: "Harrogate Pride - fabulous!"

She was also branded an "attention seeker" and a "liar" after fans discovered she posted selfies with drag queens - despite saying she had a phobia of them in a shocking outburst earlier this week. They're both adults who have a healthy interest in each other. "Some people will be like 'let's keep her in and see how bad it gets!'" "I was f***ing bored after the first few days".

India said: "Exactly, people have done very well out of that but I wouldn't do it as a game play, it's just too obvious when you do something deliberate".

Speaking to the rest of the housemates, she said "The fact Ginuwine here is happy to go with women, but wouldn't feel comfortable going with me".

Malika Haqq opted to nominate Andrew Brady and Ann Widdecombe, although the reasons she gave for nominating them were tenuous at best - with her decision to nominate Andrew blamed on him not doing a chore she had given him correctly.

John Hill, spokesperson for Coral said: "We continue to see one-way traffic for Courtney Act in the outright betting for Celebrity Big Brother where the drag queen is now the strong favourite to be the last contestant standing in the house". "I'm confused", one person wrote. "Obviously, black people would find that offensive".

"I am one hundred percent sure that we are living with a victim".

Willoughby then compared drag to blackface, adding: "Transexual people have suffered over the years, a lot of laughter".

Viewers were stunned by India's comparison, with one venting on Twitter: 'Oh no no no NO WAY did #CBBindia just refer drag queens to minstrels! WTF!???
