Is Vinnie Jones too violent for Celebrity Big Brother?

Psychologists and a past victim of football hard man Vinnie Jones, have claimed that the star is too violent to be in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Vinnie is reportedly entering Celebrity Big Brother tonight but Tim Gear who was once beaten up by Jones told The News Of The World:

“It doesn’t take an awful lot to set him off – those people he’s sharing a house with don’t know what he’s capable of.

“I think it’s a very bad idea letting him go on Big Brother, and I think he knows that himself.”

Behaviour expert John Rushton added: “Celebrity Big Brother is zoo television, with Vinnie Jones playing the role of gorilla. He should not be on the show.”

Tim revealed some details of Vinnie’s attack on him, which started a dispute about a property fence.

Horse psychologist Tim said: “He looked mad, his face was screwed up and red with rage. His eyes were bulging. It frightened the life out of me. The next thing I knew, he had pounced on me, grabbing my neck and biting into my skull.

“I could feel his teeth sinking into my scalp and the pain was excruciating.

“I pushed him away and shouting, ‘Stop! What’s the matter? Just calm down.’

“He was shouting, ‘Don’t touch my f***ing property.’ He hit me over the bridge of my nose with his fist and I fell between some drawers and almost blacked out.

“But he jumped on top of me. I could smell the drink on his breath, and he hit me again in the face. I was dazed but he just kept on.

“Then he stood up and towered over me. He kept on calling me a ‘fat coward’. I was pleading with him but every time I went to speak he stamped on my face. He was revelling in it.

“My face was a mess and I could taste the blood in my mouth. There was blood all over the place, on the walls and on the floor.

“As I lay there he took kicks at me around my body.

“I thought it was over when he stormed out but suddenly he flew back in, yelling, ‘You bastard. If you ever ride your horse past my house again I will shoot it – and if you get in the way I will shoot you too.

“‘Do you understand? Is this going into your thick head?’ He said it over and over, and each time he hit me in the face above the eyes. All I kept saying was, ‘Yes Vinnie.’ There was no reasoning with him.”

Vinnie Jones was subsequently charged with ABH but only got a £300 fine and 100 hours’ community service.

Tim concluded: “He’s a danger to the public. When I see him on TV I get angry and switch over.

“Every time something happens people seem to say, ‘Oh well, it’s just Vinnie being Vinnie.’ But what does it say to kids who are influenced by him, who watch him?
