Celebrity Big Brother 2018: Ann Widdecombe claims this is PROOF she’s not homophobic

Last night saw Courtney Act crowned winner of Celebrity Big Brother after finishing with almost half of the public vote. 

The Drag Act, real name Shane Janek, fought tooth and nail with Ann, 70, over her relentless history of voting against LGBTQ rights at every level during her 23 years in parliament. 

Courtney, 36, described the former Tory backbencher’s views as “harmful” to young people, particularly on a platform such as CBB.

Though, Ann claims she can prove she’s not homophobic, kind of. 

“If I were homophobic, I wouldn’t have gay friends,” she stressed following last night’s final. 

What’s more, she went on to dispute allegations of misogyny, adding: “Equality isn’t about special favours; it’s about being on a level playing field. I hate tokenism.” 

Ann’s stay in the Borehamwood bungalow was tinged with controversy from the get-go. 

Within hours of entering the house, she was embroiled in clashes with transgender news reporter India Willoughby; locked horns with Boris Johnson’s sister Rachel over housework; and endured spat after spat with winner Courtney over her stance on gay marriage. 

Though, she soon turned her unfavourable odds with both the residents of the Elstree den and the public around. 

Ann went in to the house as a wild outsider but eventually become favourite to win, before falling at the final hurdle. 

Following her win, Courtney had the final say on her feud with Ann.

“You know, Ann and I did have very different views and that was always the challenging thing for me in the house,” she told host Emma Willis. 

“For me, she was like that grandma at Christmas who you know doesn’t approve of your lifestyle and many, many things.

“But you just smile and tolerate and you get through dinner because you know that’s the polite thing to do.

“But at the same time, you know it’s not normally someone who’s a national name and who spent 23 years voting against your human rights in -parliament.

“That was a real conflict for me, but I just had to keep reminding myself that hopefully the people that were watching were seeing two sides to the story, to do those conversations justice.”

Celebrity Big Brother is expected to return to Channel 5 this summer.
