Bella was dressed to impress in a white gown, featuring a bodice that cinched in at her tiny waist.  

Sheer fabric from the waist down revealed her trim pins, while nude heels elongated her frame.

The marketing consultant’s brunette locks were styled loosely around her face and shoulders, and her makeup was elegant.

Bella’s sighting seemingly confirms her feud with Irena on Thursday’s episode, does not see her being booted from the mansion.

But it didn’t take long for things to escalate, with Bella labelling Irena ‘a manipulative little b***h’, before storming off.

Others compared Bella to Roxi Kenny, who quickly developed a reputation as the show’s resident drama queen.

‘Bella was my fave but now she just seems immature and selfish,’ tweeted one fan, while another added, ‘I’m getting flashbacks to year seven watching this’.
