Sov: 'Celebrity Big Brother' housemates bullied me

London-born rapper Lady Sovereign has claimed she was "bullied" in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house because of her "outspoken" nature.

London-born rapper Lady Sovereign has claimed she was "bullied" in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house because of her "outspoken" nature.

The singer - who was evicted from the show on Monday night, with 69.5% of the public vote - was nominated by the housemates to face the public vote after stealing food and accused of not pulling her weight with household chores.

Lady Sovereign - who goes by the name of "Sov" - said her tormentors made life in the house unbearable.

"I was bullied into making myself look absolutely horrible, and that wasn't the case. Everyone was bullying me except Sisqo and Stephen (Baldwin), I would say the main bullies were Dane (Bowers) and Stephanie (Beacham) without a doubt," she said.

"They could see I was quite outspoken, and they used it to their advantage. At one point I went to the Diary Room and I wouldn't say I was close to tears, but I was very sensitive about the issue of bullying.

"I said it was unacceptable that certain people are treating me this way. I expressed my feelings but at the same time, I stood up to them. No one was bothered," she added.

Sov, who backs US rapper Sisqo or Hollywood actor Baldwin to win, entered the house for a "social experiment", but admitted she soon got bored during her 16 days in the house.

"I was expecting a little bit more, to be honest," she said.

"I wanted more nitty-gritty tasks, but it got a bit repetitive to every other series. I got really bored, three days ago. They should have pushed us to the limit. It wasn't that gruesome or punishing."
