‘David is dead’: Turmoil on CBB as Tiffany assumes it’s David GEST

Angie Bowie's sad news led to a darkly hilarious mix-up on Monday, as her CBB housemates assumed another 'David' had died.

Channel 5 producers took David Bowie's ex-wife into the diary room to privately tell her that the legendary rocker, with whom she has one son, had died of cancer.

But when she left and turned to Tiffany Pollard for comfort, she simply said, "David is dead," leading to utter confusion for the contestants.

"I can't keep this a secret, she told me not to tell anybody… I'm not able to not tell anyone," Tiffany told the other housemates in the garden, clearly assuming David Gest had passed away in the CBB house.

"I hope she's just joking but she said she's not, she told me that David is dead."

Minutes later, Danielle accused Angie of being "sick" for pretending that someone had died when he was "asleep in the other room."

Watch the whole thing here:

Speaking about the ridiculous mix-up, Angie later called it "a comedy of errors," saying, "it's on tape, I said David not David Gest, but I didn't say Bowie."

Later that day Kim K's best Jonathan Cheban made the decision to quit the house in a shock move, explaining that his time had "expired" and adding, "I'm not really into fighting, Tiffany is insane! It's getting down and dirty and there's a bad vibe in the house."

Just another day in the CBB house…
