Celebrity Big Brother star Ekin-Su's criticism of show's editing makes no sense

"You can't have seen what's been shown and what's been said."

Celebrity Big Brother's Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has bizarrely claimed that the reality show's editors "cut stuff out" from her confrontation with co-star Marisha Wallace.

In Friday's episode, the house's awkward face-to-face nomination process saw the Hairspray and Dreamgirls performer visibly upset Ekin-Su by choosing her to get the boot, despite the former Love Islander doing exactly the same thing to Louis Walsh.

Ultimately, Ekin-Su became the latest evictee of Celebrity Big Brother and joined hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best, and Layton Williams, Arielle Free and Levi Roots for a debrief on follow-up programme Late and Live.

Mentioning the Marisha situation, Strictly Come Dancing 2023 contestant Layton told her: "She had to pick someone just like you picked Louis. Louis squashed it and kind of kept it moving and unfortunately, you dragged it on..."

She reasoned: "You haven't seen everything, they cut stuff out."

Understandably so, Ekin-Su's comeback was then flattened by the logic of both Layton and AJ.

"You're not going to blame it on the edit. One thing you're not going to do is blame it on the edit. We see what we see and it's a shame," replied Layton Williams.

AJ Odudu added: "It's interesting as you've literally just walked out of the house, you can't have seen what's been shown and what's been said.

"But I can assure you that everything that has been seen and has been shown, has been said by you!"

Meanwhile, Big Brother 2008 housemate Luke Marsden was quick to jump on Ekin-Su's criticism of the editing too.

He told his X fanbase: "I can't stop thinking about the fact that she blamed the edit and said that she'd got a bad edit and she wasn't happy how she came across, despite not seeing a single second of footage because she'd only just been evicted. She's already blaming a bad edit despite not seeing a stitch of a bad edit!"

The reality TV star then encouraged her to "take a very long break" from TV altogether.

Celebrity Big Brother airs on ITV1.
