Julie Goodyear has branded MC Harvey, The Situation and Ashley McKenzie "bullies".
The former 'Coronation Street' star slammed the "gang" for their treatment of the female contestants in 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
She said: "The Bros were in a gang and the bullying in the house started against the younger girls.
"There was so much testosterone flying around in there - and when you throw alcohol into the mix what do you expect?"
The 70-year-old matriarch - who branded Martin Kemp an "a**ehole" after seeing footage of him criticising her - insisted she had never been two-faced on the show.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: "I always try to see the best in everyone and I'm often disappointed. I'm used to it.
"I don't bear grudges but it hurt what they said. I'm just human. What I said or did was no worse than them."
And despite Coleen Nolan's repeated complaints that Julie hated her, the soap legend insists she had no problems with the former 'Loose Women' star.
She said: "Was it simmering between us? Not from me.
"She never said anything to me. Surely if she'd had a problem she would have said so to me.
"Why didn't she come to me? Was she frightened? Good gracious. Of a disabled pensioner? My my!"
