Angie Bowie comforted by Celebrity Big Brother housemates after David Bowie's death

cbb day 7 2

Angie Bowie is supported by her fellow housemates in tonight's Celebrity Big Brother following ex-husband David Bowie's death.

This evening begins as Big Brother calls Angie to the diary room, and off camera she meets her Agent who tells her the very sad news that her ex-husband, music legend, David Bowie has passed away. Angie decides she would like to stay in the house and returns to the diary room.

Big Brother asks Angie how she is feeling, she replies, “I’m fine. I think I’ll feel better if I cry, but I can’t cry at the moment. I haven’t seen him in so many years, I can’t make a big drama out of it; I just feel like an era has ended with his passing. I’m so very sad.”

Angie then starts to cry, and Big Brother tells her to take her time, as there is no rush to go back into the house.

Big Brother calls John and David to the diary room, to offer Angie some support.

In the diary room, both John and David are shocked by the news that Angie has told them, and they offer their support. She remarks, “The Stardust is gone.”

John asks her if she wants to keep this news private, she says yes and they both tell her they won’t say anything.

Angie confirms she’s happy to go back into the house, and John and David advise her to say she’s just feeling unwell. John and David accompany Angie back into the living area.

Later however, news of David's passing gets out in rather shocking scenes.

Once everything has calmed down, in the snug Angie and Darren are talking about the sad news surrounding her ex-husband. Darren remarks, “The world will be grieving and you’ve got your own personal grief going on in here, which is hard for you.”

Celebrity Big Brother 2016 airs tonight from 9PM on Channel 5.
