He then tried to drink drive his car away from the luxury mansion where the show was filmed. 

Steve, who is a former David Beckham impersonator, joined the show with his long-term partner Helen, hoping to invite more sexual partners into their relationship.

But he is claimed to have gone berserk following a date with one of the single girls called Jess. 

Another participant has now spilled the beans.

Open House: The Great Sex Experiment contestant reveals X-rated problem

Pole dancer Grace Harrison, 24, told The Sun: “All you saw when the cameras were rolling was Steve drinking a few glasses of Prosecco with Jess in the yurt but behind the scenes it all kicked off.

 “Steve and Jess had shared a couple of bottles but when their date ended Steve was desperate for another drink and the producers deliberately put a limit on drinking so that the contestants don’t get out of control, but Steve wouldn’t take no for an answer.

“He kept asking and the next bottle didn’t come, and he was getting increasingly cross and kept saying to the production team, ‘where is the bottle that I asked for?’

 “He got told no, by the production staff, but wouldn’t let up. He started staying stuff like, ‘Who did they think they are? I’m a 40-year-old man, how dare they tell me what I can drink or not. How dare they control me. I’m a big boy. I’ll get my boys down here.’”

Grace encountered the fracas that followed on her way back from her own date.

The show aimed to pair sexually liberated singles with couples who were interested in experimenting with consensual non-monogamy.

Grace went on: “He kept going back and forth between the yurt and the production team then I bumped into him out the back after I’d been on a date, and he was fully kicking off then and he tried to get into his car.

“I heard screaming and shouting and he was trying to fight with the staff and they were trying to take his keys and remind him that he’d been drinking but he was having none of it.

 “They said, ‘You can’t drive. That would be drink driving and it’s illegal,’ and he was like, ‘I’m off. You can’t control me. I can do whatever I want.’

“No punches were thrown but there was a lot of scuffling.

 “The single lads had to get into his face a bit and reminded him that he’d told them earlier in the day that had a young daughter, so what the hell did he think he was doing.

 “Thankfully that seemed to work.”

Steve and Helen ended the series by concluding polyamory – the practice of engaging in multiple sexual relationships with the consent of all the people involved – wasn’t for them. 

And Grace is full of praise for how show bosses handled the situation. 

She added: “The staff and all the people filming were trying to help Steve calm down and he was being so horrible to them all.

“Eventually he stopped ranting and went to bed and filmed the last bit of the episode the following day with the in house intimacy therapist Dr Lori Beth Bisbey.”

Open House: The Great Sex Experiment ran for six episodes and finished earlier this month.

Couples were invited to explore and indulge in their fantasies in a luxury stately home, with an expert on hand.

Intimacy therapist Dr Lori Beth provided them with support and advice on how to open their relationships safely and healthily.

A spokesman for the show declined to comment, as did Steve.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

I’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
