What did you miss?

No celebrity has been safe from Louis Walsh's sharp tongue in the Big Brother house, with Jedward, Ronan Keating and Andrew Lloyd Webber all targeted by the X Factor judge.

In Wednesday's episode, music manager Walsh stuck the boot into Take That, branding Mark Owen "very old" and claiming Jason Orange "didn't have to do much".

But karma came back to bite Walsh later in the episode as the other housemates shared their true feelings about in a game of jelly bean roulette.

What, how, and why?

Louis Walsh shared some harsh opinions about Take That in Celebrity Big Brother, adding to the list of famous acquaintances he has made rude comments about.

So far during his time in the house, Walsh has called Jedward "vile", Ronan Keating "a p***k" and Andrew Lloyd Webber "strange" - and now he has taken a pop at the Take That stars.

Talking to Sharon Osbourne about Jason Orange who left the group in 2014, Walsh said: "What happened to Jason. He just disappeared. And he was a nice guy...just gone.

"And he didn't have to do much, he just had to do a bit of dancing. That's all he had to do. He wasn't a singer as such, Gary (Barlow) and Mark (Owen) kind of held the vocals together."

However, that didn't mean that he had good words to say about Owen as he added: "Mark's got very old. Very old."

Earlier in the episode, Walsh shared his views about Meghan Markle as Fern Britton spoke about her admiration for Kate Middleton, and commented that it was a big responsibility to take on Princess Diana's engagement ring.

Osbourne said of the ring: "Can you imagine if it had gone to Meghan?"

Walsh asked: "Does anybody like that Meghan? Apart from Harry."

Britton added: "I just want Harry and the children to be happy. I want Harry to come home."

Levi Roots chipped in that he liked Prince Harry, saying: "Harry's a people person. I've never met Harry but I've met William. And I still like Harry better."

There were awkward scenes over a game of jelly bean roulette when the housemates were asked to answer some difficult questions about each other.

Walsh was in for a hard time as Zeze Millz labelled him the least trustworthy, Britton called him the laziest, and Colson Smith accused him of being the biggest game player.

However, the hardest moment to watch was Roots calling Corrie star Smith the most boring, with the actor later escaping to the toilets where he ended up in tears.

Smith was consoled by Nikita Kuzmin and Bradley Riches, later telling Big Brother: "Getting called boring has brought back a lot of the doubts I had in myself from previous times. I'm sure to everyone watching on the outside it's nothing and I look pathetic, but getting called boring, it just hits you like a bus."

Celebrity Big Brother airs on ITV at 9pm.
