Celebrity Big Brother denies housemates have had 'secret outside contact'

Celebrity Big Brother 2018

Celebrity Big Brother bosses have denied that some housemates have had secret contact with the outside world.

It follows both Rachel Johnson and Ann Widdecombe publishing articles while still in the house.

Last week Ann posted an article in the Daily Express, titled "Day 9 and I can’t believe I’m still in the Celebrity Big Brother house."

Then at the weekend, Rachel published a column in the Daily Mail about her "fortnight of flirting, twerking and feminism".

Appearing on Channel 5's The Wright Stuff today, former housemate India Willoughby took aim over the articles.

India, who was the first housemate to be evicted last Friday night, said: "Well this is interesting because the first rule of Big Brother is that all housemates should have no contact with the outside world.

"I would say that’s disqualification, surely?"

A spokesperson for Celebrity Big Brother confirmed that housemates have been continuing their work commitments from the house.

However they stated that no celebrities left the house nor had direct access to the outside world.

“Rachel doesn’t leave the house or have access to anything relating to the outside world to continue her work commitments," a spokesperson for the show told BBSpy.

In her column, Rachel insisted she had heard nothing from the outside.

"Has Trump launched a nuclear strike on China? Is Theresa May still PM?" she wrote. "These are questions I can’t answer, of course, because I’ve had no contact with the outside since New Year’s Eve.

"I’ve heard nothing of friends or family and have seen no media.

"I’m stuck with only my ever-present housemates for company – and bossy, controlling Big Brother."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly on Channel 5.
