The usually cool, calm and collected Celebrity Big Brother housemate lashed out at The Apprentice star after she became unnecessarily tangled in Nicola McLean’s bizarre row with troublemakers Spencer Pratt, 33, and Heidi Montag, 30.
The Hills duo have claimed that Nicola is “dead” to them, after she chose to nominate Coleen Nolan, 51, for eternal immunity – even though the accolade was eventually awarded to James Cosmo, 68.
Jessica tried to assure Nicola that emotions are simply boiling over because “people don’t see the reality”, but Calum soon warned the 29-year-old not to intervene.
“Everything was alright and then you started talking and she started crying,” Calum, 35, fumed at the mother-of-three. “Why bring up s**t up that’s already been dealt with?”

Jessica hit back: “When someone needs to talk, you encourage it and you listen.”
“The problem is you’ve been drinking as well,” Calum sighed. “You’re not the right person to have that chat with her. Why are you being defensive?”
Understandably bewildered, Jessica sulked: “That’s fine then I’m not, whatever.”
Trying – and failing – to put the spat to bed, Calum added: “We get along well and you’re shutting me out. Whatever, snore.”

As he stormed out of the living room, he snapped: “F*** that, I’m trying to make people understand, but if they won’t listen…”
