Anthea Turner told Grant Bovey to avoid getting 'p***ed' on Celebrity Big Brother!

TV presenter advised her ex-hubby to lay off the booze

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Grant Bovey has been given a top tip on how to handle life in the Celebrity Big Brother summer 2016 house by his ex-wife Anthea Turner.

Anthea and Grant divorced last year, three years after their relationship collapsed when he cheated on her.

But it seems the former couple are still on good terms, as it turns out Anthea gave him a crucial piece of advice for the show - be careful with the booze.

"Anthea told me not to lose perspective and, 'Don’t get p***ed'," Grant told The Mirror before entering TV's most famous house on Thursday.

"That is sound advice. I’m not going to have more than four gin and tonics at once!"

Anthea, of course, is well aware of the pressures of Celebrity Big Brother, having been a housemate on the very first series way back in 2001.

She shared the house with five other housemates, including Chris Eubank and Vanessa Feltz, but was the third to be evicted.

Anthea and Grant have also done reality TV together, competing on ITV's Hell's Kitchen in 2009.

So far in the CBB house, Grant has sparked up an unlikely friendship with Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson.

On tonight's show the businessman revealed to her that he lost his virginity at age 17, and she later said: "I think Grant fancies us! I think we’re flirting, he’s sexy, we have a strong bond!"

Celebrity Big Brother airs nightly on Channel 5.
