CBB: Liz Upsets Jasmine With Suicide Comment
Columnist apparently didn't realise actress' father had taken his own life...
Liz Jones has upset her fellow Celebrity Big Brother housemate Jasmine Waltz by making a flippant reference to suicide in the face-to-face nominations.
The controversial newspaper columnist left Jasmine in tears after claiming that the actress' good looks made her want to take her own life.
She said: "I look at her and I literally want to kill myself as she is so beautiful. It's not good to be around her with all my self-esteem issues."
But what was intended as a sort-of compliment backfired on the Daily Mail scribe, because Jasmine burst into tears.
"You know my father committed suicide? So maybe you can use a different choice of words... That's so insensitive," she gasped.
And she was so upset by what she saw as Liz's crassness that she pledged not to consider her feelings for the rest of their time in the house together.
Jim Davidson - who himself has clashed with Jasmine repeatedly - was an unlikely peacemaker.
He later said to her: "I don't think that Liz knew anything about your situation. I didn't know anything about it until yesterday ... I think she genuinely meant that as a compliment."
And Liz was quick to leap in, adding: "Jasmine, I'm sorry. I had no idea, I had no idea. I don't even know why I said it. I just wanted to say something nice about you."
Meanwhile, the house has been consumed by a new mystery after a towel with a brown stain was discovered in the bathroom.
There was fevered speculation - and a certain amount of sniffing by Dappy - as the HMs debated whether it was dirt or something much worse.
Jim Davidson has been given a secret mission by the show's producers.
