Jedward are beginning to grate on their Celebrity Big Brother housemates for failing to pull their weight.

Fellow contestant Darryn Lyons launched a rant about the bubbly twins in which he blasted them for leaving the house in a mess and claimed they had ‘the attention spans of a mosquito bite’.

He dismissed the pair by referring to them as ‘Bitsy and Bobsy’, and also criticised Tara Reid for trying to top up her tan rather than pulling together.

He said he had appealed to the brothers to tidy the Big Brother kitchen to allow him to cook, but he was ignored.

Darryn said: “I asked a favour to the boys, there was cucumber all over the place, I said ‘please just clean it up’. We’re going to have to get tougher on them…”

Gathered with him in the garden, Amy Childs and Sally Bercow backed the idea of a cleaning rota.

“It’s not worth all of us living in a pigsty,” said Darryn. “If we all did it together, it would take us just 20 minutes every day. Then you can keep your eyes on Bitsy and Bobsy, Porky and Pinny, or whatever their name is.”

He then turned his grumbles to American Pie actress Tara. “I just can’t understand. Tara was there saying ‘yeah yeah yeah’, but she went off in her bikini for a sunbathe. This isn’t LA.”

The audience for Sunday night’s edition of the show was down to 2.2 million, after opening on an average audience of 5.1 million for Thursday’s debut show.
