India Willoughby has explained her phobia of drag queens on Celebrity Big Brother 2018.

In this week's show, Shane Jenek gave Andrew Brady a Courtney Act-style makeover, introducing Betty Swollocks to the group.

However 'drag phobic' India wasn't happy.

After showcasing his new look, Andrew told the group: "I've just been sat there getting done for two and a half hours. I've got so much respect for you girls now. I s**t you not."

Amanda Barrie reacted: "You're so beautiful."

And Wayne Sleep laughed: "Those lips, it's enough to turn me straight."

But India stormed off as Shane asked her: "Are you having a traumatic response?"

Rachel Johnson commented: "She always does this it always goes wrong."

Jess said: "It's not offensive, I don't understand.

"And now it's made me feel sad now. It's going to kick off isn't it, I might go and hide under the bed."

However pictures posted to Twitter seemed to suggest India's fear of Drag Queens may not be all that.

Snaps shared by former Big Brother housemate Chris R Wright on the social networking website see India happily posing alongside drag acts.

"She looks terrified. #CBBIndia #CBB," Chris captioned the photos.

"India’s a LIAR!! #CBB" reacted one fan to the pictures.

Another Twitter user - @TheChrisHampton - sharing the pictures posted: "It’s amazing how India has an incredible phobia of drag queens. I’ll just leave these here...make of it what you will...#cbb #cbbuk"

Following her eviction tonight (Friday, January 12), India explained the pictures.

She said "I was paid to do an event and some Drag Queens were there. I am going to be nice and take a picture if someone asks, but I do have a drag phobia."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly at 9PM on Channel 5.
