Celebrity Big Brother star loses temper at being called an idiot

She's not a happy housemate

Do NOT call Celebrity Big Brother’s Jess Impiazzi an idiot, okay?

The former Ex On The Beach star was feeling defensive during a trip to the Diary Room, where she slammed people who couldn’t see past her glamour modelling background.

An exclusive clip aired on last night’s Big Brother’s Bit On The Side showed Jess discussing recent events in the house, which included a discussion on posing nude.

Jess, 28, had told the housemates while she’d never gone completely naked and displayed everything, she had posed without clothing for her calendars.

And it seemed she wasn’t entirely happy with how Ann Widdecombe responded.

Jess told the Diary Room: “I woke up this morning and was a bit like, I feel out of my depth. I’m a bit scared.

“But as the day has gone on, I was like, pull yourself together, go speak to Ann. She’s on her own in there, she’s a very nice old lady.

“She’s just a very strong woman who has different views to myself in certain things, mainly about nudity.

“But there is so much to her and all of us could learn from someone like Ann.”

Jess said she’d plucked up the courage to speak to Ann and felt better for it.

“I kind of feel like it’s helped me fit in because if someone says to me, ‘She’s an idiot, she just does glamour modelling’, well, I’m not an idiot.

“I’m willing to learn and anyone willing to learn anything is not an idiot by far.”

The nudity discussion happened following launch night, when the housemates chatted about who had – or would – pose naked.

Jess told them: “I’ve done it. I haven’t showed my actual bits but I’ve done calendars and been completely nude. I think, I work hard at the gym so I’ll show it, why not?

“It’s my choice to do it so off I went and off I did it.”

Rachel Johnson then chipped in to say she posed naked for a men’s magazine on her 40th birthday, saying it was to celebrate women and was fun.

Ann replied: “But why does that celebrate women? You have a great mind, you have all those abilities, why do you celebrate [by posing naked]?”
