Celebrity Big Brother housemate Rhian Sugden reportedly called the police after fellow contestant Jasmine Lennard posted a series of 'threatening' tweets referring to the model. Jasmine, who clashed with Rhian during her time in the house, is alleged to have said on Friday ahead of the series final that she should be 'very afraid right now', and later added, "I sincerely doubt @rhianmarie will be smirking tonight." A spokesperson told The Sun, "She was threatened on Twitter and has taken the matter to the police who are investigating further after they felt it was a serious offence." Rhian is also reported to have asked for extra security on the night of the final, which was won by Julian Clary. During her time in the house Jasmine fell out with Danica Thrall over her chosen career of persuading men and women online to buy her gifts. She also had a row with Rhian after accusing him of leading on Olympian Ashley McKenzie - despite the fact she said she had a boyfriend outside of the house. Jasmine later became the first person to be evicted from the house, and did not hold back when it came to expresing her feelings about Danica and RHian "Look at them," she said during her eviction interview, "They're just skanks."
