Axed Britain's Next Top Model contestant slams judge Abbey Clancy: 'she's just a bitch'

Also claims that she forgets her lines and is a right old diva

Anyone who's been watching the latest series of Britain's Next Top Model will know that its been pretty dramatic. There's been fights, there's been fainting, there's been falling. 

But this week it's judge Abbey Clancy who's in the firing line, after axed contestant Alex branded her a 'bitch', and claimed she can't remember any of her lines. 

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, Alex - who was booted off of the show in week 4 - went IN on Abbey, labelling her a 'mean girl' and accusing her of making the wannabe models feel uncomfortable. Gulp.

"She's just a bitch and I don't think she is a woman's woman," she said. 

"Elle Macpherson seemed like a mother figure but Abbey wasn't approachable and was meant to be our mentor. I did not feel that she was the right person for the job and I didn't learn anything from her". 

She continued: "She didn't seem to give constructive criticism and just dragged me down. It was like being in a Mean Girls situation around her. It was always very bitchy.

"I felt a relationship with her as a head judge would be a no-brainer but I was never in a situation where I felt like we could approach her". 

Alex also claimed that Abbey took sides after an explosive argument between two groups of girls in the house, saying: "She seemed to like the 'princess' girls more than our independent group of girls.

"She wouldn't give me the time of day. She just made me feel so uncomfortable. As soon as you walked in the room, she seemed to look at you from head to toe and made you feel small. It knocked my confidence a lot."

Yeesh. 

As if that weren't quite enough to be getting on with, Alex also had a pop at Abbey's telly based skills, claiming she struggled to get her lines right, and acted like a diva on set. 

"They tried to simplify the lines for her as she just didn't seem able to get it right," she said. 

 "During one of the eliminations we were all standing there shaking, barely breathing, and she seemed to take forever to get her lines right about who was going home. 

"Then it was, 'Can you do my hair and get me a glass of water?' It was so frustrating. On the initial shoot task, she had to come out of a trailer and meet us for the first time. It seemed to take several takes to get it right."

Speaking about the BNTM experience as a whole, Alex added: "There wasn't a day when I didn't cry. I came home with scabs under my eyes from constantly wiping my eyes. It was brutal on my emotions and I came back a nervous wreck." 

So yeah, it doesn't exactly sound like she had the *best* time. 

A source close to the show hit back however, saying:  "All of the judges were told to only engage with the girls on set during filming. To single Abbey out as unapproachable is unfair. All TV shows involve multiple retakes, as anyone in the TV industry knows." 

Hmmmm.
