Celebrity Big Brother 2014: Josie Cunningham banned!

Josie Cunningham

Josie Cunningham's controversial abortion claims have seen her banned from Celebrity Big Brother 2014.

Apparently 'model' Josie first hit the front pages last year after having a boob job on the NHS.

At the weekend the now pregnant 23-year-old caused more tabloid headlines after revealing she was considering having an abortion in order to appear on Big Brother after an offer from producers.

Channel 5 were keen to shortlist me then they found out I was pregnant,” she claimed. “Then they suddenly turned cold. That was when I started considering an abortion. After the operation I will be going back to them and asking if they will still consider me.”

The comments prompted a flurry of outrage with thousands signing a petition to ban her from the show.

And according to The Sun newspaper, TV bosses won't be wanting to deal with it all.

"Josie is deluded if she thinks this will improve her chances of signing up, which were slim to non-existent to start with," a source told the newspaper. “How can we work with her — or pay her — if she admits having an abortion to achieve that? It would be a minefield.”

Speaking to the Daily Mirror yesterday, Josie had said: "I’m finally on the verge of becoming famous and I’m not going to ruin it.

“An abortion will further my career. This time next year I won’t have a baby. Instead, I’ll be famous, driving a bright pink Range Rover and buying a big house.”
