Celebrity Big Brother 2012: Denise Welch reduced to tears as Michael Madsen calls her "emotionally disturbed"

Denise Welch reduced to tears as Michael Madsen calls her 'emotionally disturbed' in face-to-face Big Brother nominations

They've never exactly been the best of friends.

But things erupted between Denise Welch and Michael Madsen last night after the Reservoir Dogs actor labelled the actress 'emotionally disturbed'.

The comment came as the Celebrity Big Brother housemates were forced to make face-to-face nominations on last night's spin-off show.

Nominating Denise, Michael said: 'I can’t stand another minute in this house with Denise, I am not the source of this argument…she is.

'I feel she is emotionally disturbed and like she said it’s either me or her.'

However, Denise was left so
distraught by Michael's comments that she burst into tears, and had to
be comforted by Natalie Cassidy and the Playboy twins Kristina and
Karissa.

Following the incident, Natalie was
fuming by Michael's behaviour and vowed to talk to the actor, who she
has previously likened to a grandfather figure in the house.

She told her fellow housemates: 'I can’t let it lie. He needs to be told that what he said about Denise was wrong.'

Natalie continued: 'Honestly, I will
not talk to him now, I will be polite but I won’t talk to him. When he
wakes up tomorrow going “good morning” he won’t be getting a good
morning from me. I won’t be entertaining conversations. I don’t like
false people.'

Frankie Cocozza added: 'That was so evil, I can’t even get over that.'

Michael's nomination of Denise came
after their frequent arguing in the house, which Denise said had been
'causing an atmosphere'.

During the process, nice guy rugby player Gareth Thomas was the only star to avoid being nominated.

Before they were called up, Frankie
shook his head at the live nominations and said: 'This is the most evil
thing, I don't think I can do it.'

Each celebrity was then given a chalk board on which they had to write the names of the housemates they wanted up for eviction.

Denise
was the first one up and stood in front of her fellow celebrities and
announced she was voting for Michael and the twins.

The Playboy twins, Karissa and
Kristina simply said, 'Kirk and Natalie,' while Natalie also kept it
simple and said: 'Michael and the twins.'

Romeo
was next up and looked deflated as he turned his board over to reveal
his nominations and said: 'I nominate Frankie, because they way he talks
about women can be overboard. And Michael because there's a slight
imbalance in the house.

He said: 'I'm voting for the twins
because if I didn't start a conversation, they wouldn't talk to me and I
also vote for Romeo, and the only reason being because no one else will
nominate him.'

I'm can't do this: Frankie looked horrified at having to make face-to-face nominations

Kirk voted
for Michael and the twins because, 'we don't see eye to eye', and then
Nicola got up and got quite emotional as she announced she would be
voting for Michael and the twins.

Gareth then said: 'I'm voting for the
twins because when they were with Georgia, I found it difficult to get
into a conversation with you, and Michael, purely because I want him to
see his family.'

After all
the housemates had voted, Big Brother revealed that they were all up to
face the public vote with the exception of Gareth who no one had voted
for.

You sure, Frankie The X Factor reject voted for the twins first, but looked as though he'd had a hard time deciding who to vote for in second place but settled for Romeo

The face-to-face
nominations were revealed on the Big Brother spin-off show and the live
eviction will take place this Friday night.

Meanwhile, Denise also spoke about the antics shown earlier this week when she was seen enjoying a hot tub frolic with Frankie.

Speaking about the scenes, Denise admitted she was hoping she hadn't caused her family any embarrassment.

She said: 'I really hope my kids don't see that. It was only a bit of fun. I wanted to give Frankie a treat on his birthday.'
