Scotty T reveals why he missed David Gest's funeral following Celebrity Big Brother

Celebrity Big Brother

Scotty T has explained how he missed David Gest's funeral following this year's Celebrity Big Brother.

The pair appeared together on the series, which Scotty won, back in January and February.

However last month news broke that David had tragically passed away at a London hotel.

Many CBB housemates from the series - Stephanie Davis, Jeremy McConnell, Gemma Collins, Danniella Westbrook, Darren Day, Kristina Rihanoff and Christopher Maloney - paid their respects at David's funeral two weeks ago.

Scotty wasn't present but it turns out it wasn't his choice.

He admitted this week: "I can't believe I missed his funeral."

Explaining why he couldn't make it, Scotty told The Sun on Sunday: "Do you know what it is, I lost my phone last week and because it's been my birthday I've had 2,000 messages on my phone.

"Someone put my number on the Internet, I don't know who, so everyone's been ringing it, so literally I've ignored everyone on my phone."

So that's that cleared up.
