Viewers brand Paul Danan a “disgraceful bully” as he launches astonishing attack on Sarah Harding

Former addict was furious about medication claims

Only a couple of days ago, we reported that Sarah Harding and Paul Danan had hugged and made up after their spat over the first nominations in Celebrity Big Brother.

Well, that little peace-keeping exercise didn’t last long!

The two troubled stars were at each other’s throats again last night after Sarah told housemates that former drug addict Paul was on medication.

But Paul was undoubtedly the main aggressor, launching a foul-mouthed rant at the Girls Aloud singer as another housemate tried to fend him off.

The incident started after Real Housewives star Brandi Glanville asked Danan how he was doing.

Looking agitated as he danced on the spot, the actor, 39, replied: “I’m just trying to get through the non-alcohol thing.”

At that point, Brandi dropped the bombshell that Harding had been spreading goss about him taking a pill.

And it wouldn’t be an understatement to say that he went ballistic.

Storming into the adjacent room, where Sarah was enjoying a cigarette with other guests, Dangerous Danan launched into a tirade that turned the air blue.

“Sarah, what are you saying?” he fumed at the shocked-looking singer. “Don’t you ever say that [expletive]!”

Harding told her aggressor to “calm down”, but he wasn’t finished yet.

“No, I’m not going to [expletive] calm down!” he raged, telling Sarah that the “pill” in question had in fact been a paracetamol.

“I’m the one that’s clean and sober – what the [expletive] are you doing?”

Eventually, the actor was guided away by Gogglebox star Sandi Bogle before he could cause any more damage, leaving Sarah to utter: “He’s [expletive] up.”

Paul later visited the Diary Room, where he apologised for his outburst. But that didn’t stop viewers berating him on Twitter.

“Sarah hasn’t actually done or said anything wrong. Paul Danan has just kissed goodbye to any credibility he had left,” wrote one disgruntled fan.

Another tweeted: “Paul makes out that Sarah has a drinking problem behind her back 24/7, then kicks off cuz she thought he’d taken a sleeping tablet???”

And a third remarked: “#PaulDanan you are a disgraceful bully. You should be ashamed.”

Whether the pair can make up after this latest row remains to be seen – but we’re not holding our breath!
