The group attempted to sort out sleeping arrangements during their first evening in the Borehamwood bungalow, but former Conservative MP Ann was concerned when she suddenly realised that all the towels laid out on beds had each housemate’s individual name on.
Worried about breaking the rules of the Channel 5 series, the 70-year-old went straight to newsreader India, 52, to ask her to give up her already chosen bed.
“Well normally it’s first come first serve for the beds,” India tried to reason, as an increasingly irate Ann was determined to explain the situation.
“Yes I know,” Ann shot back. “But what I’m saying is they’ve put these on the beds.”
“Well I’m quite comfortable here,” India simply declared as Ann proceeded to storm off out of the bedroom.
“Thank you very much, right OK well I shall go off to the other room and if they complain that will be up to them,” the politician snapped.
Speaking to fellow housemate Maggie Oliver, Ann insisted: “I don’t actually mind but I think the system’s been thrown, they put those towels, named towels, on our beds for a purpose.”
Despite the women’s initial uneasiness within the house walls, India later assured Big Brother in the diary room that she deeply respects Ann.
“I hope Ann wasn’t upset earlier on, actually I really like Ann. I really like people with strong opinions,” she admitted.
She hastened to add: “Nevertheless, I think Ann is someone who likes to follow rules. She’s quite linear and quite rigid and her understanding of a situation… That because a towel with her name was on my bed it meant that her bed was my bed. It’s not.”
Celebrity Big Brother continues tomorrow at 9pm on Channel 5.
