EXCLUSIVE: ‘He’s just playing the game!’: Big Brother’s Melissa McGorman defends villain Daniel Hayes after he was trolled by high-profile people’

Evicted Big Brother star Melissa McGorman has rushed to the defence of her fellow co-star Daniel Hayes after he was the victim of online trolling last week.

The 33-year-old sheep farmer said while things may appear to be tense between Daniel and Katie Williams, it was a very different story in the house.

‘It was very fair,’ she told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday.

 Melissa, who formed an alliance with Daniel during her time in the house continued: ‘I was in an alliance men, and they respected my game play and how hard I went.’

‘Katie had a lot of females around her, it’s just the way it fell. I think everyone was really respectful – we’re all just playing a game,’ she continued.

‘Everyone just played really hard and it was the people who chose to lead the group.’

‘They chose that, and we all respected them for it. I didn’t find that there was any male or female discrimination or anything like that.  I was always treated with respect.’

Last week, Daniel shared a video to his Instagram page and said that high-profile people have been sending him hateful messages – as his rivalry with Katie was played out on screens. 

He described the trolling as ‘really sad’. 

In the footage, Daniel admitted he was having a blast on Big Brother, before revealing the dark side that comes with reality TV.

‘I’ve been trolled a lot, including by some pretty high profile people. I won’t name them, but they’re pretty sort of high profile and it’s really sad, he says in the video. 

Daniel explained that he finds the hypocrisy of some of the influencers sending him hate quite amusing.

‘I really find it, the hypocrisy of some of these high profile people – how they talk about mental health issues and how they’re being trolled themselves yet they’re out there trolling other people – it’s quite amusing really,’ he said. 

Daniel concluded his post, warning his trolls:  ‘If you troll me, I’m going to screenshot it and I’m going to post it online.’

‘I’ve got 130,000 followers, including my YouTube channel. So good luck with your trolling and hopefully you’ll stop it.’ 

Daniel’s post was quickly inundated with comments of support by his fellow housemates.

‘We had so much fun playing the Big Brother game and that is all it was. A game. No need to troll.’

Tilly Whitfield who also appears on the series, described Daniel ‘like a puppy, scary on the inside [sic] but a really cute little nice man on the inside.’

‘Well said mate, well said!’ wrote Marley Biyendolo, while sheep farmer Melissa “Mel” McGorman cheekily urged fellow housemate Nick Benton to ‘stop trolling’ Daniel.

Big Brother continues Monday at 7.30pm on Seven
