BB’s Lewis Flanagan seen grabbing co-star Isabella Farnese by the throat
He was removed from the Big Brother house for performing a tasteless impersonation of Adolf Hitler, saying: “Kill the Jews.”
And now controversial contestant Lewis Flanagan has been spotted appearing to choke former co-star Isabella Farnese during a night out in London.
However, Lewis, 27, has insisted that he was just “messing around” on Thursday evening, and Isabella, 23, has corroborated his version of events, despite an onlooker claiming she looked “close to tears”.
Speaking the next day, she told The Sun : “I met Lewis last night and he’s a gentleman and completely respects me.
Big Brother’s Lewis Flanagan says he’s ‘lost everything’ and is living with his mum
“We were messing around, having a laugh and those pictures are taken completely out of context.
“I’ll always remain close to him. I feel completely comfortable around him.”
Meanwhile, Lewis also denied any wrongdoing, explaining he has nothing but love for Isabella.
“We were having a great evening and just messing around as friends,” he told The Sun .
“We get on really well and I completely respect Isabella and she’s someone I am going to remain close to long after the Big Brother experience is over.”
Lewis, 27, recently revealed that he had been forced to move back into his mum’s house after making a seriously ill-judged comment about Jews during his time in the Big Brother house.
Up until that point, the reality wannabe had proven popular with viewers and was even favourite to bag the £100,000 prize fund.
Upon his ejection from the Channel 5 compound, Lewis vehemently denied that he is anti-Semetic.
“I was talking to Cameron about getting him some outfits and I said the word ‘Auschwitz’ instead of outfits by mistake,” he told The Sun.
“It was a slip of the tongue and then I tried to mock Hitler and did an impression of him saying ‘Kill the Jews’.”
“It was an impression not a statement of my beliefs at all – and has come out completely wrong and I’m devastated.
“I am not anti-Semitic, I am agnostic. I love all people.
“It was a misguided comment that came out wrong.”
