It’s not been the best week for Celebrity Big Brother (has it ever had a good week?) after being heavily criticised for broadcasting Angie Bowie’s reaction to the death of her ex-husband, David Bowie.

But the car crash telly has continued onwards, and again, Angie is in the frame.

Let’s set the scene. Big Brother has just told Angie that her former husband, music, film and fashion icon David Bowie, has passed away after losing an 18-month battle with cancer. Then, after breaking down in the diary room, she heads back into the house to tell the nearest possible human being.

That person happened to be American reality TV star Tiffany Pollard, who completely misread the whole situation. Upon hearing that “David had died”, the 34-year-old automatically assumed that Angie meant fellow housemate David Gest – and she loses her shit.

The reason for my last status!Still laughing now!!! She thought David in the house died! 󾌴

The footage is currently blowing up on social media and has had half a million views on Facebook, with plenty of people pointing out the hilarity of the situation.

But with that said, let’s not forget that the world lost a genuine icon this week.
