A gay contestant on Big Brother was ejected from the house after flashing a straight housemate, and chasing him around naked.

Aaron Frew, who entered the house when the show launched earlier this month, became the third housemate to leave yesterday when he was ejected from the show.

A spokesman for Channel 5 confirmed he had been removed for “inappropriate behaviour” – with last night’s show revealing he had drunkenly flashed his housemate Joel during a game of Truth or Dare, before chasing him around naked.

Joel complained to Big Brother about the incident, saying: “I feel really uncomfortable. To be totally honest, I think I would have ended up punching [Aaron]… I feel like my personal space was invaded.

“I want to emphasise I did nothing at all to entice or welcome that approach. I feel terribly awkward, if that makes, sense, that I let that get that far.

“I felt my personal space was violated and.. I didn’t know how to react to it because it’s never happened to me before.”

When Frew was challenged to the Diary Room, he said: “I’m sorry. Oh my God, I can’t believe it. I really didn’t mean to take it that far.

“I really apologise for what I did. It was banter. I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean to offend him or you guys.

“I can’t believe my journey’s ended like this. It’s really meant so much to me. I’m really so upset.”

The housemate previously said he had a crush on Joel, telling him: “I’ve got to admit it Joel, over the past few days, I think I’ve come to realise that I’ve started to fancy you, don’t you agree?”

Joel shot him down, responding: “I have to say Aaron, as lovely as you are I think we should just be friends.”
