The crafty housemates revealed on ITV's Loose Women today that they tried to anger the loyal Directioners in a bid to generate plenty of votes to get them out.
Perez explained: "When I entered the house I definitely wanted to stay until the end but by day nine I said, 'Get me out of there!'"
Nadia then chipped in to say: "That's why we started to say we hate One Direction because Perez said if we said we hated One Direction, thousands of 1D fans will vote you out. We kept walking around saying that to get us out!"
Perez joked: "I tried to do reverse psychology!"
It didn't work, however, as the producers never aired any scenes of them discussing Harry Styles and the boys!
And, in case anyone was wondering, Perez and Nadia made sure to tell viewers today they really didn't hate One Direction at all!
Perez and Nadia reunited on Loose Women today, the morning after Perez was booted out of the house in a double eviction alongside Kavana.
The pair were firm friends in the house and have said they'll stay in touch on the outside world. Perez has even suggested he and Nadia film a reality show together in New York!
We would SO watch that!
Meanwhile, back in the house, five housemates remain in the running to win the show tomorrow night: Katie Hopkins, Katie Price, Keith Chegwin, Michelle Visage and Calum Best.
