Angie Bowie has given her thoughts on *that* epic Celebrity Big Brother mix-up when Tiffany Pollard thought David Gest had died, rather than Angie's ex-husband David Bowie.

If you remember, when the sad news about Bowie's death came on 11 January, representatives for Angie informed her off-camera, as she was still in the house.

Returning to the house, she pulled Tiffany to one side and informed her David was dead. But poor Tiff thought Angie meant housemate David Gest, who had been unwell, and had a major meltdown.

Appearing on Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side last night, Angie - who quit the show this week because of illness - said: "It was unbelievable. What was going through my mind was, what kind of a moron are you Angie that you would tell this woman anything and expect her to follow it!

"I didn't say David Bowie. It was my fault. I should have said David Bowie. But I didn't say David Gest either. I just said David.

"I started to realise the difference between how Americans speak and how we speak: I am American so I'm not talking out of school, I was just educated here [in England]. If someone was to say that to me, I would say, 'What David?' not immediately assume David Gest.

"Then I felt really bad and guilty because I had no idea she was so close to David Gest."

Angie left the show on 19 January, with a rep saying: "After being unwell for a few days, Angie Bowie has decided to leave the Celebrity Big Brother House. Her exit will be addressed in tonight's live show on Channel 5 at 9pm."
