Fans of Celebrity Big Brother have taken to Twitter to blast Channel 5 for showing what appeared to be Angie Bowie’s first reaction to the news of her ex’s death.
During tonight’s show Channel 5 will show Angie’s reactions to David Bowie’s death. Although they are keen to stress that the LGBT advocate was told by her own representatives, off camera, before returning to the house and the diary room.
Angie Bowie was married to the legendary singer from 1970 to 1980. David Bowie died yesterday at the age of 69, just two days after his birthday and the release of his final album Blackstar.
After being told about David’s death Angie returned to the house and to the diary room where Big Brother asked Angie how she felt.
Angie then starts to cry, and Big Brother tells her to take her time, as there is no rush to go back into the house.
Big Brother then called John and David to the diary room, to offer Angie some support.
In the diary room, both John and David are shocked by the news that Angie has told them, and they offer their support. She remarks, “The Stardust is gone.”
John then asked her if she wants to keep this news private. Angie said that she would.
Angie confirmed to Big Brother that she was happy to go back into the house, and John and David advised her to say she’s just feeling unwell.
John and David accompanied Angie back into the living area.
CBB continues tonight on Channel 5 from 9PM
