The truth about Celebrity Big Brother 2018’s ‘towel gate’ has been revealed.
Just one day into the new series and there was tension in last night’s first episode.
Ann Widdecombe and India Willoughby bickered about beds, with a disagreement over which of them should have one of the limited single mattresses.
India took up one of the two single beds in one room, but Ann felt it was hers after a personalised towel was left on it.
Refusing to move, India insisted it was ‘first come first serve’, eventually forcing Ann to sleep alone in the second bedroom.
During last night’s Bit On The Side, the truth was revealed.
Host Rylan Clark-Neal confirmed that the bed with the towel as indeed destined for Ann to sleep in.
He said: “Celebrity Big Brother did intend certain beds for the housemates.”
Dispite the launch evening clash, there appeared to be no hard feelings between Ann and India.
The pair high fived one another before settling down for their first night in the house.
Of course whether or not things will stay so friendly remains to be seen.
Other celebs on the current all female line up are Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Malika Haqq, Boris Johnson’s sister Rachel Johnson, Ex On The Beach star Jess Impiazzi and actress Amanda Barrie.
They’re joined by Made In Chelsea’s Ashley James, and former Detective Constable Maggie Oliver, known for her work investigating the Rochdale grooming scandal.
The current cast of eight women will be joined by a number of male housemates from Friday night.
Rumoured to be taking part are footballer John Barnes, Love Island’s Jonny Mitchell, Boyzone’s Shane Lynch, US rapper Ginuwine, The Apprentice’s Andrew Brady and Made In Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews.
Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly on Channel 5.
