Viewers watched hysteria in the Celebrity Big Brother house on Tuesday night as Tiffany Pollard mistakenly thought fellow housemate David Gest was dead.

Angie Bowie had been told the sad news off-camera that her ex-husband, music legend David Bowie, had died from cancer.

In another Diary Room conversation, Angie confided in John Partridge and David Gest about the news, with all three admitting they would keep the news to themselves for now.

Once back in the house, Tiffany asked Angie if she was okay upon seeing that she wasn't her usual self, and Angie told her that "David is dead".

In what was a mix up that caused huge shockwaves throughout the house, TIffany screamed and almost collapsed, thinking it was David Gest who had passed away, when really he was actually in the bedroom sleeping.

Angie was of course referring to her former husband, but it took a while for the house to realise what was going on. After many stormed into the bedroom to find that David Gest was indeed alive, Angie clarified that it was her ex-husband and John also explained the situation.

But Tiffany was outraged, and at one point accused Angie of saying she told her "David Gest". Before long, the house appeared to turn against Tiffany, with some even threatening to leave if Tiffany didn't.

The episode was described by many celeb viewers as "awkward" and "uncomfortable", leaving many "speechless". Viewers also seemed to be split over the mix up. See some reactions below:
