Police investigate alleged ‘groping’ incident in ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house

Former 'Baywatch' actor Jeremy Jackson has been removed from the house following the incident

Police are now investigating the alleged “groping” incident that caused former Baywatch star Jeremy Jackson to be thrown out of the Celebrity Big Brother house.

After drinking heavily on Friday night and the early hours of Saturday morning (January 10), 34-year-old Jackson went to the toilet to vomit, where he was comforted by fellow housemate Chloe Goodman, a 21-year-old model and reality TV star.

Having fled the toilet, an area of the house not covered by cameras, a tearful Goodman then told her fellow housemates: “I was helping him and he went to my dressing grown top and put my boob out.”

The following morning, after spending the night in a separate bedroom to his fellow contestants, Jackson was asked to leave the house. “I accept all ramifications,” he told viewers, but also insisted that what he allegedly did “was not a ripping open or an aggressive move”.

Hertfordshire Police have now confirmed they are looking into the alleged “groping” incident, the BBC reports this morning (January 12).

“We are currently working with the programme’s producers as part of our inquiries. It would be inappropriate to comment any further at this time,” a police spokesperson said.

Other well-known names taking part in the current series of Celebrity Big Brother, which began last week, include actress Patsy Kensit, the ex-wife of Liam Gallagher, soul singer Alexander O’Neal, blogger Perez Hilton and ’90s pop singer Kavana.
