Big Brother's Best Shows Ever has been a brilliant trip down memory lane so far, reminding us just how amazing and iconic a lot of the housemates have been.

But not all of them are remembered for the right reasons, as Davina McCall revealed during tonight's (June 17) episode that there is one housemate in particular that she would lose her rag with if she was a contestant.

Tonight's episode was day 6 of Celebrity Big Brother 6, which was the series that featured Austin Powers' Verne Troyer, 'Gangsta's Paradise' hitmaker Coolio, Shameless' Tina Malone, Sugababe Mutya Buena, Ulrika Jonsson, Liberty X's Michelle Heaton, Terry Christian, LaToya Jackson and others.

Tonight's episode saw Verne and Ulrika do a karaoke duet, Mutya and Terry become Chesney Hawkes cultists and Coolio annoy practically everyone, so it's no wonder that Davina singled him out as the housemate to make her flip.

"[In the task] he was going all the time: 'good, good, terrible, good, stupendous', I mean... if that was me in there I would have just... screamed in his face," she admitted.

"I would have gone nuts. I mean, I'm half-French, I'm quite fiery. I'm 'calm, calm, calm, calm' and BANG!"

Co-host Rylan Clark-Neal said that he "really ticked that box for a great housemate" and even though he wasn't actively playing a role, his "ultra child" mannerisms slotted into that annoying housemate archetype so well.

Looking at the house as a whole, Davina added that it was "the weirdest, most eclectic bunch of people, just so out-there. It's so hard to find people in there who weren't epic housemates."

Big Brother: Best Shows Ever airs on E4.
