Celebrity Big Brother hit by Ofcom complaints due to ‘treatment’ of Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu after furious clash with Layton Williams on Late & Live over claims she was ‘badly edited’

Celebrity Big Brother has been hit by Ofcom complaints regarding the ‘treatment’ of Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu on Late & Live following her eviction.

The reality star, 29, who won Love Island in 2020, was ejected from the house on Friday night, after which she caused a social media storm by insisting she was badly-edited on the show without a true depiction of her behaviour.

Her comments resulted in a furious clash with panelist Layton Williams who said, ‘we’re not blaming it on the edit girl!’

She later threw ITV‘s Lorraine into chaos on Monday morning when she inexplicably cancelled an appearance on the show last minute.

Ekin-Su had caused controversy in the house after she appeared annoyed by theatre star Marisha Wallace’s face-to-face nomination, and was criticised by fans for her ‘hysterical’ crying.

Celebrity Big Brother has been hit by Ofcom complaints regarding the ‘treatment’ of Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, 29, on Late & Live following her eviction.


Ofcom has received 139 complaints, according to Express.co.uk, with a spokesperson telling the publication: ‘Complaints related to the treatment of Ekin-Su by the presenters and guest panel.’

Late And Live descended into chaos on Friday as she clashed with Layton after her eviction from the house. 

She attempted to ‘blame the edit’ for her unfair portrayal on the show but Layton, 29, was having none of it and told her she was dragging out the explosive argument with Marisha Wallace during Thursday’s episode. 

While some fans branded the former Strictly star a ‘bully’ and said that he did to Ekin-Su what others did to him during his time on the dancing show, others disagreed and dubbed him the ‘voice of the people’.

Ekin-Su had broke down in hysterical tears after Marisha picked her in the face-face nominations before storming off to her bed as the musical star, 38, followed to apologise.


Speaking about the dramatic performance, which saw Ekin-Su branding the theatre star as ‘fake’, Layton shot back at the reality star as he revealed his full support for Marisha in the confrontation.

Ekin exclaimed: ‘When Marisha nominated me that actually showed me her true colours, that she had been thinking about winning the game the whole time.’

Host AJ Odudu attempted to reason with the star as she suggested: ‘Well what we have got to remember, you know she’s American it’s strategy, game playing.’

But Layton was quick to intervene as he explained: ‘Marisha had to pick someone basically and she did pick you, just like you picked Louis.

‘Louis squashed it you know and kind of kept it moving and unfortunately you dragged it on and I kind of did feel for Marisha in that moment.

‘I was like, you know what this is her big day, she had just been told she had been nominated for an Olivier Award and to see her crying in the Big Brother…’ as Ekin-Su interrupted: ‘You haven’t seen everything they have cut stuff out but ok.’

Yet Layton was having none of it, as he hit back: ‘Don’t blame it on the edit, one thing we are not going to do is blame it on the edit.

‘We’re not blaming it on the edit girl. We see what we see and it was just a shame, it was a big shame.’

As host Will Best opened it up to the audience to try and garner some support for Ekin-Su, he struggled to find an audience member that was on her side.

Ekin-Su’s family and friends also took to social media during her time on the show to ask fans to lay off criticising her, saying it was difficult for them to read ‘hateful comments’ and ‘physical abuse threats’.

The pleas came after Celebrity Big Brother fans claimed that Ekin-Su may have been ‘cancelled’ following her stint on the rebooted ITV show.

On Monday as Lorraine Kelly teased her upcoming show on Good Morning Britain, she told host Susanna Reid that Ekin-Su’s planned appearance was cancelled under mysterious circumstances – leading to a snide dig from Susanna.

Lorraine, 64, said: ‘She was due to come in but no. We’re trying to find out. She was not happy, sometimes you think it’s put on but she was genuinely not pleased at all.’

Susanna subsequently made an apparent reference to Ekin-Su’s proclamations, saying: ‘This is why I like live TV because then you know what’s actually happened and there’s no blaming the edits’, to which Lorraine said: ‘Yes live is a lot better.’
