A brave Scarlett went topless on the MTV show but Celebrity Big Brother star Jez didn’t have any kind words for the star.

As the youngster stood in the tanning booth the rest of the group queued up before viewers heard Jez talking about Scarlett.

Speaking to a pal the dad-of-one can be heard saying: “That is minging like.

“I wouldn’t touch her, man.”

But the insults didn’t stop there.

He then went on to add: “They’re like two shopping bags like, aren’t they mate.”

It is believed that Scarlett walked off set after the scene was filmed over Jez’s nasty comments.

Despite his horrible comments it is rumoured that the show is partly scripted so it’s uncertain whether Jez was made to say them.

However Jeremy spoke out about his comments during a Facebook Live interview with The Sun.

He revealed: “I stand by my words against Scarlett because she was with my best friend Richard, so I know what happened in that relationship so I’ve seen him upset.

“People have their own opinions, it was my opinion at the time, I haven’t seen Scarlett, she’s a very funny, witty girl.”

It was recently announced that Jez would be heading to rehab to battle his drug and alcohol addictions.
