CBB's Tiffany Pollard hysterical after wrongly believing David Gest has died

CBB's Tiffany Pollard hysterical after wrongly believing David Gest has died

The 'Celebrity Big Brother' house was cast into panic when Tiffany Pollard mistakenly thought fellow housemate David Gest had died.

After Angie Bowie was privately informed of the death of her former husband David Bowie, she told Tiffany, "David's dead", leading to the mix up.

A confused Tiffany quickly became hysterical as she wrongly believed Angie meant music producer David Gest, also a contestant on the show, and not Angie's former husband.

Daniella Westbrook eventually managed to calm Tiffany down and told her, "she means her ex-husband, David".

Angie was informed of the death in private and opted to remain on the show.

She said: "I'm fine. I think I'll feel better if I cry, but I can't cry at the moment. I haven't seen him in so many years, I can't make a big drama out of it; I just feel like an era has ended with his passing. I'm so very sad."

After a bust-up with some of the other housemates, Tiffany later apologised to Angie for her outburst.

Meanwhile, Darren Day comforted Angie, telling her: "The world will be grieving and you've got your own personal grief going on in here, which is hard for you."

It was an action-packed day in the house as Jonathan Cheban decided to exit the show, saying there was a "bad vibe in the house".

He said: "My time here has now expired. I'm not really into fighting, Tiffany is insane! It's getting down and dirty and there's a bad vibe in the house."

However, he added to Big Brother: "Honestly, this has been the literally the best experience I've ever had! I didn't think I'd survive the first night. These people are so amazing! I love each and every one of them, and I can't wait to see them afterwards! I'm leaving with no problems with anyone, and that's how I wanted to leave. It's definitely bitter sweet. Thank you and goodbye."
