Celebrity Big Brother saw Coronation Street star Colson Smith supported by fans after he was branded the "most boring" during a task.

As celebrity lodger Sharon Osbourne enjoyed her last day in the house, tonight's (March 13) episode involved a game of Jelly Bean Roulette that caused upset among the housemates.

In the task, housemates answered sweet or sour questions about their co-stars, depending on the flavoured bean they ate, and Levi Roots selected Colson as the "most boring," upsetting the actor.

Despite Levi explaining that his decision was based on Colson prior to the singing task, the Corrie star was later seen breaking down in tears in the toilet.

"You're not boring, and we don't think you're boring," Nikita Kuzmin said after Colson exited the toilet. "It's just one person's opinion."

Louis Walsh also reassured the actor, telling him: "It's fine. I'm glad that you're sensitive ... You're not like everybody else ... I think you're f***ing great. You're interesting, and you're not boring."

Colson later discussed the comments in the diary room, explaining that he felt the house made emotions feel more heightened than usual.

"Getting called boring has brought back a lot of the doubts that I've had in previous times," he said, adding that he was concerned that he would come across as over-emotional to viewers.

"When you get called boring, it kind of hits you like a bus. I just didn't think it was going to be this hard," Colson continued.

Viewers at home expressed their support for the soap star, with one person writing on X, "Aw don't you just want to give Colson a hug bless him."

Another called Nikita the "the kindest soul" for comforting Colson.

Celebrity Big Brother airs Sundays through Fridays at 9pm on ITV1 and the ITV Hub, followed by Late & Live on ITV2 immediately following each new episode.
