Celebrity Big Brother 2016: Tiffany Pollard Breaks Down After Misunderstanding Angie Bowie And Thinking David Gest Had Died
It’s already been a pretty dramatic week in the Celebrity Big Brother house, but things escalated further tonight (Tuesday 12th January) after a case of mistaken identity caused Tiffany Pollard to explode.
It all kicked off when Angie Bowie shared the sad news of ex-husband David Bowie’s death, which she had been told off-screen earlier in the day.
She told Tiffany: “You’ve gotta do me a favour, you can’t say a word...David’s dead.”
Assuming that Angie was referring to their housemate David Gest, who was resting in bed as he was ill, Tiffany had a total breakdown, sparking concern with the rest of the house as she started screaming.
Becoming more and more hysterical, Tiffany headed out to the garden and told those sitting outside: “I can’t keep this a secret, she told me not to tell anybody,” before sharing the news.
Or what she thought was the news, anyway.
After the confused housemates frantically checked to see if David Gest was still alive, they eventually managed to clarify that Angie had been referring to David Bowie, NOT David Gest.
The drama didn't end there though, with Tiffany continuing to kick off and shout: “Why the f**k would she get my head like that in a f**king tail spin?”
After a group discussion without Tiffany, John Partridge shared the celebrities' feelings on the situation, telling her that housemates felt threatened by her and would leave if she stays, to which she replied: “That’s too f**king bad."
She continued ranting in the diary room, shouting: "I’m ready to go! I’m f**king leaving! This whole house has a problem with me!"
Tiffany added: "They will have to get me evicted, because I’m not just going to walk off. I’m not a quitter!"
She did later, eventually, apologise to Angie, saying she was very sorry for her loss.
