Saira Khan felt 'degraded' by Marnie Simpson's flashing

Saira Khan has insisted she "never felt bullied" during her time in the Celebrity Big Brother house and would "absolutely" go back into the house if she had the chance.

Saira Khan felt "degraded" when Marnie Simpson flashed her on Celebrity Big Brother.

The Loose Women panellist became the second star to be evicted from the house on Tuesday night (09Aug16) after she was chosen to leave over Heavy D, Stephen Bear and Lewis Bloor.

In an interview after her departure, Saira looked back at some of her most memorable moments in the house, including when Marnie shook her breasts in her face during a game of Truth or Dare.

The incident occurred when Marnie pretended to apologise following a row the pair had earlier in the day, but ruined her speech when she said she thought the argument was because she had a better chest than Saira, then lifted up her top in an attempt to prove her point.

While Marnie was left in hysterics by the display, Saira was less than amused.

“At that moment I’d just come out of the diary room crying and I felt quite vulnerable," she told The Sun Online. "And to sit there with my friends and for her to come over to me and flash her breasts at me, I just thought that was quite degrading of her.

"I felt really sad and like I'd been insulted. And I felt disappointed that she thought she could do that to another woman as a prank and think it was funny."

Despite insisting prior to her entrance into the house that she is proud to be a strong woman, Saira was left in tears on numerous occasions during her time on the reality show following rows with various housemates.

However, Saira insists she never felt victimised during her time on Celebrity Big Brother and would definitely consider a return to the house if she was given the chance.

"I never felt bullied at all, I felt totally accepted by everybody in that house and if I had to go back in again, I absolutely would," she smiled.
