DAVID BOWIE: Singer's former wife Angie Bowie to stay in ‘Big Brother’ house

Angie Bowie has opted to remain in the Celebrity Big Brother house after being told of her ex-husband’s death.

She entered the house on Tuesday, January 5, and is not due to leave until she wins or is evicted in the coming weeks.

A Channel 5 spokesman said: “Following the very sad news of David Bowie’s death, we can now confirm that Angie Bowie has been informed off camera by her representatives.

“She has taken the decision to continue in the programme. The decision to remain in the house is entirely her choice, and she has been given the option to leave at any time if she changes her mind.

“Appropriate support will be available to Angie at any time if needed.”

The couple split in 1980 after 10 years of marriage. They had one son, film-maker Duncan Zowie Haywood Jones, in 1971.

The 66-year-old former model has spoken about her ex-husband several times since entering the house, and accused him of turning their son against her.

She said: “I don’t see him [Duncan] at all. He doesn’t like me. But my daughter loves me, so it’s good.”

On the question of why her son chose not to see her, she said: “I guess David told him not to.”
