THE GAMES fans all had the same complaint after watching the women come to blows in tonight’s finale episode.
Rebecca Sarker and Phoenix Gulzar-Brown were involved in a furious velodrome bust-up after Chelcee Grimes and Christine McGuinness overtook the derny in the cycling event.
But ITV viewers took to Twitter to slam the group for being “petty and hit out at Phoenix for acting “childish”.
Emmerdale star Rebecca, 47, confronted model Christine, 34, and accused of her foul play.
The actress said: “You overtook when you shouldn’t have done.”
Christine replied: “I followed the person in front.”
But Rebecca quipped: “Whether you followed or not the [pace setting] derny was still there…”
Then Mel B’s daughter Phoenix Gulzar-Brown interjected, defending Rebecca, saying: “The only reason why she’s fighting is because if it was disqualified, she would’ve got first.”
Later on Rebecca was seen telling Phoenix: “There’s fair and there’s good sportsmanship and I’m not sure that was an example.”
Footballer Chelcee Grimes, who won the race, said: “It’s heating up. I think everyone’s fighting for points now. I want to be on that podium at the end.”
Viewers were fed up with the arguments, with one writing: “The women at each others throats to win, the men just having a laugh while being competitive. Anyway, Colson is great.”
Another wrote: “Phoenix is so spoilt. Being very childish. #TheGames”
A third echoed: “The arguments between the women are so petty. #TheGames”
“They’re arguing about overtaking a random bike? #TheGames,” another commented.
Someone else tweeted: “Phoenix is being so annoying – just let is go. #TheGames”
Another said: “Phoenix is so unlikable, she’s got to b**** about everything. #TheGames”
One fan joked: “When The Games meet Love Island, the beef though. #TheGames”
Last night Chelcee was caught up in a “fix” row when furious viewers claimed she should’ve been disqualified for overtaking the derny.
Chelcee replied on Twitter: “Tbf, I wasn’t happy with this win. I crash at the start – panicked – got back up. Rode. Heard the bell go and thought that meant the race started.
“No excuses really. Some go for you, some go against. It’s sport.”
The fan insisted it wasn’t Chelcee’s fault, but the star continued: “For clarity, if you seen the boys’ race too, they didn’t have a clue either what the rules were. Even though we get a brief. When that gun goes all hell breaks loose.”
