Geordie Shore's Charlotte Crosby has defended Stephanie Davis, after Celebrity Big Brother's knickergate episode.

Over the weekend, CBB fans watched as Stephanie was left embarrassed after her housemates found a pair of her dirty knickers.

John Partridge, Darren Day and Christopher Maloney had come across Stephanie's underwear while doing laundry, with John telling his housemates he wanted to 'name and shame' the girl the knickers belonged to. Unimpressed with the way the situation was handled, Charlotte took to Twitter to have her say.

She tweeted: "I felt massively sorry for Stephanie tonight..... That's not very nice at all how they all went on."

The housemates had laid the dirty laundry out on the table and then discovered, what John described as "pigeon sh*t", in a pair of red knickers.

He went to tell Gemma Collins, Danniella Westbrook and Megan McKenna in the bedroom, but all three girls denied the knickers belonged to them.

Steph, at first, denied they belonged to her, before confessing they did. She later told the group: "Can I just say something, anyone who's asking about the red knickers, yeah they're mine. And you can all laugh but... not that I have to share this with you but I've been having problems down there."

The 22-year-old then said she felt like she was being 'bullied' by her housemates. She explained to Jeremy McConnell: "I heard all the screaming and laughing. That's bullying and embarrassing. I was going to wash them and they were in there to get washed today with a few other bits. I just wouldn't do that to anyone else."

After the drama aired on Channel 5, Ofcom has received 165 complaints. A spokesperson told The Metro: "We received 165 complaints about Saturday's programme. We will assess these complaints before deciding whether or not to investigate."

Like Charlotte, many others on Twitter showed their support for Stephanie too.

It isn't the first time Charlotte has stuck up for Stephanie since she has been in the CBB house.

Stephanie has hit headlines thanks to her flirty behaviour with Jeremy McConnell, despite having a boyfriend on the outside.

Many criticised Stephanie after it was revealed she had kissed Jeremy under the bedsheets, but Charlotte sided with Stephanie, explaining the Channel 5 reality show is "very difficult" for people in relationships to endure.

She said: "I don't exactly think [Stephanie's behaviour is] wrong, but I don't exactly think it's right. She hasn't cheated, do you know what I mean? Did she kiss with tongues? Until there's tongues or sex then that's bad."

She also hit out at Stephanie's beau Sam Reece for being "fame hungry", after appearing to publicly dump her on Twitter. Sam had told fans he was withdrawing his support from his girlfriend.

He later clarified he and Stephanie are still together, insisting he would never end a relationship over text or social media.

Sam recently denied he will be entering the CBB house, after weeks of rumours, and slammed claims he and Stephanie had planned her flirtation with Jeremy together.

One Twitter user had asked the First Dates model if his recent romance drama had all been staged, but Sam hit back: "I find it very disrespectful the fact you think I would set something like that up.. Come on love!!"
