Last night’s Celebrity Big Brother included what was simultaneously the best, worst, and most awkward fifteen minutes in television history.

And trust us, we’re really not exaggerating.

The episode started with housemate Angie Bowie being told that her ex-husband, David Bowie, has passed away that morning following a battle with cancer.

Fellow contestants John Partridge and David Gest were the only other people in the house to know and soon after David went to bed as he was feeling unwell.

Fast forward a bit and Tiffany Pollard realised that Angie is looking a little bit down in the dumps so asked what was wrong, which is when the 66-year-old told her that she’s not to tell any other housemates but “David is dead”.

Cue the biggest misunderstanding in history.

Tiffany immediately went hysterical thinking that she meant their housemate David, asking Angie if she was joking and how it happened, with Angie replying that she would “never joke” about something like this and that David had died “just now”.

The emotional reality TV star then ran out to her fellow housemates in the garden and told them what Angie had said, with Christopher Maloney, Darren Day and Danniella Westbrook speeding into the bedroom to check on David - only to find him sleeping in his bed.

After a whole load of confusion, Danniella soon found out that Angie meant it was David Bowie who had sadly passed away as a perplexed - and deeply annoyed - Tiffany explained that she didn’t think they got news in the Big Brother house so immediately thought the worst.

The rest of the housemates immediately flocked to grieving Angie’s side and chastised Tiffany for her insensitivity, with it being made pretty clear that the drama in this series of Big Brother has only just begun.
