Celebrity Big Brother fans have been hitting back at several TOWIE stars after they urged people to vote for Lewis Bloor.

Lewis is currently appearing in the latest series of CBB and last night he came under fire from viewers following a huge fight with fellow housemate Heavy D.

Some fans of the show are unhappy with how he is backing controversial contestant Stephen Bear, who has pulled out all the stops when it comes to annoying and winding up the celebrities.

Following the first round of nominations, Lewis is now facing eviction this week along with, Bear, Heavy D and Saira Khan.

This evening, several of Lewis' TOWIE pals have been urging viewers to pick up their phones and save him. But it seems some would rather not...

Mario Falcone tweeted: "Vote to save @lewis_bloor from eviction!" He was not, however, met with the response he had hope. One replied: "Behave, he's a plum!" Another added: "Rather not mate...."

Jasmin Walia also tweeted: "Everyone pick up your phones now and vote to save @lewis_bloor! He's doing so well x." She was also met with replies such as: "Nope!" Another responded: "Is he?"

And ex TOWIE star Cara Kilbey also found people only replying with tweets such as: "I'll pass thanks!"

Oh dear!

However, Lewis does still have many fans rooting for him - and his Twitter feed demonstrates that!

Among the messages that Lewis' team have retweeted, one read: "Why do I like Lewis Bloor so much?" Another read: "Backing @lewis_bloor all the way, by far one of me favourites in the house! Really want him to win."

Only time will tell whether he can make it all the way!

CBB continues at 9pm on Channel 5 each night.
