Davina McCall was forced to apologise last night for a comment she made about former Ultimate Big Brother contestant Nadia.

Fans complained after the presenter introduced comedian Jarred Christmas on Big Brother's Big Mouth by saying: "He has the charm of Coolio and the warmth of Ulrika. And he has the boyish good looks of Nadia."

Nadia, who was evicted from the UBB house on Friday to a chorus of boos, revealed yesterday that she had been left feeling suicidal after her recent stint on the show.

According to the Daily Star, McCall insisted that her comment was made in jest and that she did not mean to offend anybody.

The 42-year-old said: "Nadia has always been one of my favourite housemates of all time.

"But if I upset her or indeed anyone by the comment I made then I am horrified and offer my genuine apologies.

"I know when she came out of the house she was upset by the boos. She was true to herself in the house and I totally respect her."

A Big Brother spokesman said that Channel 4 would keep a watchful eye over Nadia in the coming weeks, adding: "A full aftercare system is in place for all housemates."
