|Lucy Pinder has accused Celebrity Big Brother bosses of covering up some of Coolio's most offensive behaviour.
The glamour model, who was evicted from the Channel 4 reality show on Friday, claimed that footage of the American gangsta rapper using racist language, making comments about rape, and displaying threatening behaviour has been cut from the show.
Lucy told the Daily Star: "I will admit he's TV gold but think the public should know what he is really like. A lot is not being shown. I'd only been there 48 hours and he came out and told me, 'I've never raped a woman... I've never had to'."
She added: "He would say things like: 'I'm going to elbow you in the face', or tell stories about having violent sex. I can't understand why he hasn't been called in and given a proper warning."
Lucy also claimed that producers have warned her off speaking about Coolio.
She said: "Every time I have done a live interview I have tried to slip it in about how bad he actually is. But they cut me off. On Big Brother's Little Brother I managed to say a bit about him. But the host George Lamp had the producers in his ear telling him to move me on."
But a Channel 4 spokesman insisted that housemates' behaviour is monitored at all times, and denied that Lucy had been warned off speaking about Coolio.
On Wednesday night, Coolio was warned of his 'intimidating' behaviour by Big Brother after nastily telling Ulrika and Michelle that they would be the one's going home in Friday's public vote.
