'Some people have got a judgement day coming': The CBB house wages war against Julie Goodyear… as Ashley McKenzie drops her letter from home in acid
01:02 GMT, 3 September 2012
Only a matter of days ago she was the undisputed Queen Bee of the Celebrity Big Brother house.
But after wisening up to her devious ways, the housemates have seemingly waged war against Julie Goodyear.
Ashley McKenzie began the backlash when he told Prince Lorenzo the former Coronation Street actress had been trying to get people to vote for him in the next round of nominations.
Punishment: Prince Lorenzo and The Situation were forced to wear leopardprint pants for the day after being reprimanded by Big Brother for discussing nominations
And after hearing he was being victimised, the 40-year-old cosmetics entrepreneur vowed to get his own back on the 70-year-old matriarch.
He said: 'She's been the sweetest woman to me and then goes up to Harvey and says, 'Let's get him'.
'To me, boom, she's a game player. I don't attack until I'm attacked and I've been attacked. Can you guess who I'm going after I'm going after it hard.
'I don't care how sweet she is, underneath that sweetness there's some bitter taste. She's up to no good. She's a smart woman. She almost got away with it.'
Leopardprint disaster: The duo were also told to confiscate all of Julie Goodyear's beloved leopardskin clothes after she was caught trying to influence nominations
The reality star also admitted to Big Brother that he felt 'very slow' for not catching on to the fact that the pensioner was playing a game.
He confessed: 'I feel very slow that it took me this long to figure out she was trying to play a game. She's in here to win.
'Julie is playing a very, very good game and I'm going to do whatever I can to make sure she goes before I do.'
Shocked: Julie looked on in horror as Ashley chose to burn her letter from home in acid
However, Big Brother decided to take action against both Julie and Lorenzo, as well as Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino, for breaking a house rule by talking about nominations.
As a result, Julie had all her beloved leopardprint garments confiscated, while the boys were forced to walk around for the rest of the day wearing only pants made out of the garish print.
The Situation protested: 'I feel I'm being unjustly punished. I deserve a reward for finding out who the chameleon is.'
Acid house: The CBB housemates were later treated to a rave-themed party
And things went from bad to worse, with relations between Julie and the other housemates becoming further strained when Olympian Ashley chose to drop her letter from home in acid.
As part of a new task, he had to select two letters at random from a bag and decide which could be read out and which would perish.
As a result, Coleen Nolan, Julian Clary, MC Harvey and The Situation all got to hear correspondence from home, but Julie was left in tears as her letter was shredded.
'The only reason I am picking Julie's is because what she did yesterday wasn't good.' Ashley explained.
Telling all: Ashley took it upon himself to tell Prince Lorenzo that Julie had been trying to get people to nominate him
Although the housemates were later treated to an rave-themed party, they continued to be baffled by Julie's scheming ways.
Martin Kemp told Big Brother: 'Julie had a real shock today because we all know about her tactical voting efforts now. Out of all the people in the house, you wouldn't expect Bet Lynch to be the biggest game player.
'No-one else has played a game so blatantly. It's just interesting that it's Julie.'
Meanwhile, Harvey remarked to Coleen: 'You've dealt with a lot of storms, but some people have got judgement days coming.'
Wise words: MC Harvey later warned Coleen that certain people in the house had their 'judgement day' coming
