Celebrity Big Brother's Weekend From Hell has triggered a big bust-up, after James Jordan took a swipe at footballer Jamie O'Hara's career.

Former Strictly star Jordan was one of the housemates sent to Hell during Friday night's instalment of the Channel 5 show, sentenced to live in basic conditions and battle it out with his fellow contestants to return to the main house.

In Sunday night's show, viewers will see Jordan win a task and waltz back - straight into a row.

Jordan is chatting to some of the other residents when Nicola McLean tells him that Irish twins Jedward said he had called O'Hara "a washed-up footballer" when they were in Hell.

Jordan claimed he used the term "washed up" because he assumed the Land Of The Living housemates would be watching on a screen and wanted to lay it on thick.

But O'Hara is clearly unimpressed, muttering: "Washed-up footballer, really? Okay."

O'Hara later says that he will not be "mugged off" by Jordan.

He says he is fine with "banter" adding: "You said you haven't come in here to make friends, but if you come for my career, then we're gonna have problems."

There is also trouble for Calum Best and James Cosmo in Sunday's show, as both find themselves shown the door and marched off to Hell.

Model Best gets his marching orders when Jordan is told he can pick someone to take his place in the other house.

"Purely because he was so happy when I was banished to Hell, it's got to be Calum," he says.

Game Of Thrones actor Cosmo finds himself banished at the hands of Jedward, after they also win their way back into the main house.

After mulling it over for a few seconds, they decide that Cosmo can switch with them because he "doesn't 100% get us".

Celebrity Big Brother's Weekend From Hell kicked off on Friday, when Angie Best and Austin Armacost were evicted.

Three new housemates - TV cleaning guru Kim Woodburn, Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry and former Apprentice contestant Jessica Cunningham - also joined the house and are currently in the Land Of The Living.

Bookmaker Coral said Ferry is the new 4-1 favourite to win following a flurry of bets.

Best is second in the betting at 9-2, while Jedward and newcomer Cunningham are 13-2.

Coral's John Hill said: "She's not been in the house for long but Chloe has already become the new favourite to win Celebrity Big Brother as punters now see her as the one to beat on the show."
