One moment saw Victoria Larson, known as the 'Queen' on the show, say to her fellow reality stars regarding the new arrival: "She's not welcome. She's not welcome!"

Taking to social media, many criticised her behaviour, with one person tweeting:  "I am actually so disgusted with multiple girls this season on @BachelorABC. The fact that these girls are so judgmental and awful is sickening. A round of applause to the girls that have called it out as not right. #TheBachelor #bachelorabc."

Another viewer echoed this, writing: "Does anyone actually find watching mean girls entertaining? It's just yuck. Give us longer dates and conversations pleeeease #TheBachelor," while a third praised Katie – who stuck up for Brittany – tweeting: "Katie with the extra brownie points for being a real one... I'm tired of the mean girls too #TheBachelor."

The ABC dating programme, which sees bachelor Matt James on the hunt for his Ms Right, has been full of drama this season. Last week, fans watched as contestant Sarah said her goodbyes to the show, leaving for "personal reasons".

Sarah was then left wondering whether she should stay on the reality programme and admitted she felt "emotionally exhausted". She told Katie: "This was eating away at me and I felt like I had to address it. I think I'm really questioning if I can be here and if I can do this."
