Viewers watched last night as Big Brother housemate Daley Ojuederie was removed from the house after showing "aggressive behaviour" towards rumoured love interest Hazel O'Sullivan. However Daley's brother has now insisted that Daley "wouldn't get physical".
Speaking to New! magazine following the incident on the show which appeared to show Daley putting his hands around Hazel's neck, Dudley Ojuederie said:
"Daley's a little softie. He keeps his fighting in the ring. He may raise his voice, but he wouldn't get physical."

However, Dudley isn't the first to react to Daley's behaviour as his girlfriend Katie Corriette's also appeared to defend Daley on Twitter. A follower of Corriette's asked her on Twitter: "is the Daley you thought you knew usually aggressive??"
She responded simply: "no way".
The news of Daley's removal from the house came via a statement from Big Brother which read: "Due to threatening and aggressive behaviour towards Hazel O’Sullivan we have taken the decision to remove Daley Ojuederie from the Big Brother House."
Meanwhile, fans of the show have admitted their sadness over Daley's exit by claiming that Big Brother have been "too harsh" in punishing Daley.
One fan tweeted: "I can't believe Daley was removed from big brother! I really like him and I think big brother was too harsh on him @bbuk".
Feeling the same way, another viewer of the show tweeted on the social networking site: "RAGGING!!! loved daley!! WHYYYY BIG BROTHER!!! @bbuk".
Not happy with Big Brother's decision either, @AlexDay96 used the social networking site to post: "That's bull**** Daley getting kicked out of big brother", whilst another fan (@lorrieahope) posted: "Last night's big brother was a little to much, I cant tell weather i (sic) think it was a good thing Daley got kicked out or not!"
