A source close to the show has revealed that Heidi and Spencer will have close protection from minders if they're booted out of the show tonight.

The source said: "Initially everyone seemed to love their meddling. But now it’s turned into real hatred."

Heidi and Spencer are now officially hated by the public. Copyright [Rex]Not only were the couple hated after they denied Claire Richards the chance to read a letter from home before laughing in her face, but now images of them posing with guns have appeared, things have got even worse.

The images have spurred fans of the show to tweet abusive messages to Speidi.

Another raged: "You and your fella need a bullet each between the eyes."

And that's just the start of the threats.
