Celebrity Big Brother 2018: Ann Widdecombe and Ashley James clash on their first night

Celebrity Big Brother 2018

Ann Widdecombe and Ashley James clashed on their first night in the Celebrity Big Brother 2018 house.

The Celebrity Big Brother 2018 cast were revealed last night, starting with a leading line up of eight ladies.

On their first evening, Big Brother provided an ice breaker task by posing questions to the group to individually answer.

One concerned the judgement of women, prompting Ashley to speak up: "No matter what good I do, like I've gone to Romania to rescue dogs, whatever it is I've done the press are always interested in my exes.

"And it feels like no matter what I do, I'm always defined from exes."

"And so I think now, I know that especially with women, there's so much more than meets the eye.

"So I don't judge because I know that it's so much deeper than that."

However Ann freely admitted she would judge women.

"I'm interested in the phraseology of this question," she explained. "Would we judge a woman no? The question should be would we judge a human being?

"I'm just saying why the loaded question?"

"Well my answer would be the same," Ashley insisted.

Ann then continued: "If I was interviewing for a job, an appearance is going to play a very big part.

"I would judge a woman on what she looks like," she added.

Malika Haqq agreed: "Yeah honestly, even if it's not the worst judgement on the planet."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 airs tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
