Kim Melville-Smith has hit out at her ex-fiancé Marco Pierre White Junior for "hurting her" while appearing on Big Brother.

Viewers will know Marco's brief appearance on Big Brother was controversial, as he had sex with fellow housemate Laura Carter despite being engaged to Kim. Prior to entering the house he had said Kim gave him a "hall pass" while he was on the show, and he later claimed to Laura he and Kim were in an "open relationship."

Kim denied this at the time and following Marco's eviction (he was the first housemate to be voted out by the public), he revealed he and Kim have now split. Marco has since accused Kim of 'selling a story' on him and she has now taken to social media to have her say.

Last night (28 June), Kim tweeted a link to a YouTube video she had recorded and told her followers: "Follow that link if you want to meet the real me. I'm fed up with tangled words, it's not been fair #bbuk #bbmarco."

In the five minute long clip she shares her side of the story to the ex-couple's break up.

Kim says: "I am doing this video because I want to put some facts straight with you guys. I'm fed up with reporters misconstruing my words... he hurt me. You guys might have read that I was actually sick when I saw [Marco] kiss Laura.

"The reason why we split up was not because of him selling stories to the press, that's just ridiculous, it's because he had thirty seconds of fun... Marco was engaged. I've been offered money to sell stories, Marco owes me a lot of money, I spent literally everything I have on our relationship and him and other stuff, my friends are like, 'Kim you should sell stories and get the money,' but I'm not that person."

Kim added: "I'm a private person. Being put into this limelight is crazy... it's like having your life put into a goldfish bowl and everyone is judging you. I'm never going to sell a story about Marco's family, that's just horrible and I'm never going to tell any of Marco's secrets. I think he is worried that I would do that, I am not that person.

"This has been the most stressful three weeks of my life... I did fall in love with Marco, but now I feel embarrassed because he treated me so badly."

Marco has so far not directly responded to Kim's video, but he did recently re-tweet a tweet posted earlier this month that read: "Kims an embarrassment!! She gives you a hall pass then tweets and complains about for followers, publicity stunt!"

When contacted by Reveal, a rep for Marco declined to comment.

Following his time on Big Brother, Marco confirmed he and Kim had called off their engagement during an appearance on ITV's This Morning. He had said: "The arrangement we had, I was given a hall pass for BB. I was given a free pass to do anything I wanted or what I believed. Maybe I did push it too far and take full blame..."

He continued: "I am in contact with [Kim] now. I think we've decided to see how it goes over the next couple of weeks and just be friends for the moment. I think Kim's a great person. I don't regret what I did. I shouldn't have done what I did."

Marco added that he felt "guilty" for his actions with Laura in the house.

Kim, meanwhile, has given just one interview to the media about Marco's time in the house, telling Heat magazine she felt physically sick watching his antics. She also told the mag she was furious at Laura for hooking up with Marco when she knew he had a partner.

Kim has also tweeted about her heartbreak since, saying: "I wish I was a little girl again, coz skinned knees r a lot easier to fix. Why is it so hard sometimes #heartbroken (sic)."
