Bruce Jones has sparked health fears after several outbursts against his 'Celebrity Big Brother' housemates.
The former 'Coronation Street' actor - famed for his role as Les Battersby in the ITV soap - could be pulled by producers following a string of tearful tantrums and rants towards his fellow housemates, who believe he is becoming isolated from the group.
Dr. Funke Baffour, the official 'CBB' psychologist, told the Daily Star newspaper: "I think Bruce is quite fragile."
Psychologists believe Jones - who has battled alcohol addiction - might struggle if his former 'Corrie' co-star wife Vicky Entwistle, who played his on-screen wife Janice Battersby, is evicted.
In the last few days viewers have seen the 60-year-old actor clash with busty beauty Courtney Stodden, Loose Women's Carol McGiffin and 'Geordie Shore' star Charlotte Crosby, who he branded a "foulmouthed f***ing cow" for waking him up during her drunken late-night antics.
Bruce also broke down in tears last week when it was revealed that Vicky was up for eviction, and he wept again on Friday night (30.08.13) when former football boss Ron Atkinson became the second celebrity to be evicted from the house.
