"The stardust has gone," Angie said as she told the rest of the house the dreadful news.

Angie and David were married from 1970 - 1980 and have a son together, now named Duncan Jones.

Viewers have witnessed Angie talk about her estrangement from her son, telling David Gest that she thought his father was at the root of their estrangement.

Angie has decided to stay in the Big Brother house but has been told by producers that she can leave at any time.

Some viewers have criticised Channel 5 for showing Angie's reaction to the news on TV:

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
