Gail Porter has hit back at Katie Hopkins after the, quite frankly, horrible human being tweeted that she should get over being bald.

The presenter, who was sent home from the Celebrity Big Brother house in a double eviction last night (15 September), called Katie’s tweet disgusting, and we have to agree.



Katie tweeted on 7 September: "Yes, alright Gail. You lost your hair. Get over it. It's only bloody hair. Some people have cancer. Get a grip or GET OUT!"

After coming out of the* CBB* house, Gail said:

"To put it on record, I've just read something that Katie Hopkins has written about the fact that I'm just bald and I don't have cancer.

"I've totally talked about the fact that I'm just bald and I don't have cancer, and I think what she's said is disgusting, because I lost my mum to cancer, and don't bring that up."

Someone Gail did speak favourably about was her CBB housemate Austin Armacost, who shaved his own head in support of Gail’s alopecia.

Gail said: "Do you know what, I think Austin - I don't know how he's come across, because obviously I've not watched it, I've just come out of the house.

"But Austin is very, very stoic - he believes in what he believes in, he's a great person. He can go off limits sometimes and be very aggressive, but he doesn't do it in a bad way.

"When he said to me, 'I'll shave my hair off', I didn't actually believe him. I was like, 'You're joking me', and he was like, 'No, I'll do it'.

"He woke up the next morning and said, 'I didn't do it because I had a couple of glasses of wine; I genuinely wanted to show you that I respect where you're coming from'."
