Angie Bowie quits Celebrity Big Brother

David Bowie's former wife has left the reality TV series


Angie Bowie has followed in the footsteps of David Gest and walked out of the Celebrity Big Brother House.


“After being unwell for a few days, Angie Bowie has decided to leave the Celebrity Big Brother House” a spokesperson for the Channel 5 series confirmed. “Her exit will be addressed in tonight’s live show on Channel 5 at 9pm.”

David Bowie’s former wife is the third person to walk out this series: Kim Kardashian’s BFF Jonathan Cheban was the first to leave voluntarily, followed by Gest, who exited the series for medical reasons.

Bowie learned of her husband’s death earlier in the series, but opted to stay in the house. She was then involved in a bizarre confrontation, after US reality TV star Tiffany Pollard appeared to confuse David Bowie with David Gest, telling the whole house Gest was dead.

Monday night’s episode saw Bowie losing her cool with Big Brother in the Diary Room, citing lack of sleep as the reason for her poor mood.


Celebrity Big Brother continues on Channel 5 tonight at 9pm
