On entering the house, Oliver revealed to host Emma Willis that she has written a letter to the Rochdale girls who she encouraged to speak out, explaining her decision to appear on Celebrity Big Brother.
“The last thing I want is for the girls to feel let down by me,” she said. “I’ve written each of them each a letter. So girls, you’ll be getting a letter from me tomorrow morning.”
Many fans – including CBB presenter Rylan Clark-Neal – have voiced their support for Oliver entering the house, with many believing she’s the only contestant who lives up to this year’s female empowerment theme.
And people saying #CBBMaggie isn’t a celebrity…. you’re right… she’s a HERO and we’re lucky to have her . Respect x
So, so far, there’s 1 woman thats lived upto the “Empowerment for women” theme & that’s Maggie. She’s not a ‘celeb’ yet she’s the only 1 that’s so far going to be interesting to watch & deserves to be going in under that theme. My fav already #cbb
Joining Oliver in the all-female roster to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house on Tuesday night were Anne Widecombe, Malika Haqq, Rachel Johnson, Ashley James, India Willoughby, Jess Impiazzi and Amanda Barrie.
