Irish Celebrity Big Brother contestant Jeremy McConnell has already forged a new enemy in the house - in the form of Nancy Dell'Olio.

The former Mr Ireland, who featured on MTV show Beauty School Cop Out, hit out at the socialite, accusing her of making him "feel this small" when speaking with her.

'She la-di-das around the house, and I'm sorry, I've tried to speak to her. It's like trying to speak to a brick wall," he told housemates Christopher Maloney (of X Factor) and Scotty T (of Geordie Shore) while smoking in the garden.

"I feel this small trying to talk to someone, and it shouldn't be. We're in this house as f*****g human beings. You have to go on the way people treat you, do you know what I mean?

"You can be as good looking as you want but personality like that man, I'm sorry man."

Earlier this week, he nominated Sven-Goran Eriksson's ex-partner for eviction, saying he found her intimidating.

"I find she can be a bit controlling when we're having a laugh. A bit intimidating," he explained in the diary room.

And his feelings haven't changed as he went on to complain about the way Nancy tapped him on the head, saying he felt like a "little boy."

"I just feel she's on a bit of a high horse that's all," he added.

The model has already forged a friendship with Scotty, former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis and Ex on The Beach's Megan McKenna.
