Celebrity Big Brother bosses have rubbished fix claims concerning Malika Haqq.
This week The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star sparked speculation she was being fed information from the outside world.
The suggestion followed Malika discussing a tweet sent by her pal Khloe Kardashian following last Tuesday’s launch.
Khloe had posted to the social networking website: “I am so happy for @ForeverMalika being on CBB but I hate that I can’t watch. I have to know what’s going on in there!! Is she ok? ??♀️ I’m trying to find links! Can anyone help me?”
Discussing the message, Malika told her fellow housemates: “My girl had tweeted asking everybody, ‘How can I see her?’ She wants to know everything. She told me she will climb in here!”
Some viewers seemingly felt this was ‘proof’ of a fix.
Of course, the (rather obvious) truth is that the male celebrities spilled all when they entered after launch on the Friday.
A spokesperson for the show confirmed: “Khloe Kardashian tweeted on 3rd January and the male housemates entered the CBB house on 5th January, so it is possible that any of the male housemates would have seen the tweet before entering the CBB house.”
Celebrity Big Brother bosses also denied claims that Ashley James had brought books into the house following a comment made in the show.
Although originally allowed in the early series, reading material has since been banned from the house.
Big Brother confirmed that Ashley had not taken books in, and was referring to her time in ‘hiding’ ahead of the launch night.
