Ann Widdecombe shocks her Celebrity Big Brother housemates when she joins them for an evening dip in the hot tub.
The former MP, 70, had previously declined to take part in the boozy pool sessions.
But clips shared by Channel 5 ahead of Monday night’s episode show Widdecombe finally taking the plunge alongside actress Amanda Barrie, 82, as their fellow contestants laugh and cheer.
Wayne Sleep and Ashley James are sipping wine in the tub when Widdecombe and Barrie wander over.
Dancer Sleep asks them to get in and Widdecombe replies: “You blithering idiots!”
But to their surprise she then peels off her top to reveal another top and leggings underneath, and wades in alongside Barrie.
Sleep and James can barely contain their excitement, laughing and praising the pair, as model Jess Impiazzi claps and shrieks: “I love this!”
Barrie says: “I said I’m going to get Widdecombe in the Big Brother pool if it’s the last thing I do!”
The thrilled housemates toast Widdecombe for giving the hot tub a go, with Sleep declaring: “To Ann Widdecombe, because it takes a lot for a girl like that who is stubborn about etiquette or dress and things like that to do such a thing.”
Celebrity Big Brother is on Channel 5 at 9pm.
