Big Brother 2017 live launch - Arthur Fulford with Emma Willis

Arthur Fulford left Big Brother 2017 because he felt “bullied and isolated” by the other housemates, it’s been revealed.

On Sunday afternoon it was announced that Arthur had departed the show, but Channel 5 refused to confirm a reason for his exit, or even clarify whether he left voluntarily or was ejected by producers.

Last night’s highlights episode featured the housemates’ reactions to his exit, but only said that he left “after a confidential, off-camera conversation”.

Now Arthur has given his side of the story to former Big Brother housemate Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace in her column for The Sun.

“It all became way too much. I felt bullied and isolated,” he said. “But at the same time I didn’t want to allow myself to become a victim.”

The 24-year-old acknowledged that he was a catalyst for much of the tension in the house, noting that he wanted to get back at the ‘cool group’.

“I knew what I was doing the whole time, winding people up, but it didn’t come from a place of malice,” he continued.

“Every year Big Brother has a ‘cool group’ consisting of the young, good-looking models. They treat the rest of us as their inferiors and that infuriated me!”

It is unclear whether bosses intend to replace Arthur, who previously found reality TV fame with his family on The F***ing Fulfords and Life Is Toff.

Since Arthur’s exit, his close friend Raph has become one of six housemates facing eviction after receiving a killer nomination from Joe.

    I liked Arthur and am sad to see him go. Guess we have to go back to Kayleigh’s lip-gloss story line. :grin:

    Brought down by the Delilahs of Big bro, Arthur cracked open a few rotten eggs before he left, 20/10 for entertainment value – I wanted him to win.
