Julie Goodyear has described the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house as a "pressure cooker" with the last series full of combustible characters
Julie Goodyear described the atmosphere in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house as similar to a "pressure cooker".
The former 'Coronation Street' star was evicted from the Channel 5 reality series last Wednesday (05.09.12), just two days before the final, after was described by some of her fellow housemates as two-faced and manipulative.
Julie - who left the house in a double eviction with Prince Lorenzo - admits the tension between the contestants was unbearable at times.
In an interview with new! magazine, she said: "It's a pressure cooker. The paranoia was flying."
However, Julie - who got on well with Julian Clary and Samantha Brick - disputes that she was two-faced and insists she was just herself.
The actress - who had issues with MC Harvey, Coleen Nolan and Prince Lorenzo - said: "All of them had a game plan. But I could see straight through it.
"I think what they showed was a total lack of respect for their elders."
When asked about whether or not she was two-faced during the competition she replied: "I'm no behind-the-backer. I was just me all the way through. No games, no nothing."
Julie, 70, said the most difficult part about living with a lot of people was the hygiene issues with some contestants not helping out with the cleaning duties.
The small screen icon invented her own version of ABBA's 'Dancing Queen' to cheer herself up as she scrubbed other people's dirt. She changed the lyrics to "toilet queen, seldom seen, I am the toilet queen".
Julian won the competition last Friday (07.09.12) followed by Coleen Nolan in second place and Martin Kemp who came third.
