Celebrity Big Brother's Amanda Barrie continues to sing Ann Widdecombe's praises

Celebrity Big Brother 2018

Amanda Barrie has doubled down on her support for Ann Widdecombe in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

It follows Shane Jenek (aka Courtney Act) getting into a series of clashes with the group over Ann's beliefs.

In last night's episode, Shane took aim at Ann's views on abortion and gay rights, but Amanda defended Ann and took a swipe at Shane's own actions in the house.

Amanda, as well as Wayne Sleep, accused Shane of soapboxing in a tense confrontation in the bathroom.

Following the rows, many took to Twitter to back Shane's side of the argument.

However in the house the group appear to be very much team Ann.

Following the clashes, Amanda confided in Shane Lynch: "As far as I'm concerned, there are no harsh feelings with anybody. I said [to Shane J] if you want to say something to Ann, you go ahead and say it to her.

"He's a very young man, and people, I think have to experienced what each individual is going through to do with them, that's all.

"I did say also, which is true, I would rater go out of this place having made what I think to be a friend than win this."

Amanda concluded: "I'm very fond of Ann."

Shane L agree: "I've always had a soft spot for her... I have a lot of time for Ann."

Suggesting that Ann put up a barrier, Shane L added: "She's like those soft boiled eggs.

"That outer shell is so hard but once you crack it, it's sweet and delicious inside."

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

The next eviction takes place live on Tuesday before the final on Friday.
