Nancy Dell'Olio has slammed her Celebrity Big Brother co-star Kristina Rihanoff for announcing the news that she's pregnant inside the house.

In an interview with Good Morning Britain today (18 January) evicted housemate Nancy weighed in on the surprise and very public announcement, which came just days after the celebs entered the CBB house.

Speaking about the moment, Nancy admitted: "I didn't like it. I was shocked that she was making this announcement and taking this opportunity. I mean, it was a lack of good taste."

Nancy then added she saw Kristina's move as "trying to do something to gain back some reputation."

It was on day three (7 January) of the reality show that the former Strictly Come Dancing pro revealed to her housemates (and everyone watching at home) the news she was three months pregnant with her rugby player boyfriend Ben Cohen's baby.

She gathered the house together and said: "There was something [that] happened in my life before I came into the house over Christmas … and obviously I thought it's very private news, you know, but because we are living as one family now and everybody is sort of supporting one another now, it happened to be that I found that my boyfriend and I are going to have a little one."

Ben and Kristina first met when they were partnered up on the celebrity dancing competition back in 2013. Their romance didn't start until he had split from his wife.

After the announcement was made, Ben's wife Abby, who he has been separated from since 2014, implied she didn't even know about the pregnancy herself until the news broke.
