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.

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.
