There have been many hilarious moments on TV. Remember when Gemma Collins fell through that stage? However, there is nothing that compares to the worst case of crossed wires that has ever graced UK television sets. I am, of course, talking about Tiffany Pollard’s infamous “David is dead” moment.
The American reality star and David Bowie’s ex wife, Angie, were in the house when Angie was made aware of Bowie’s untimely passing.
Watch the unfortunate moment here…
She then returned to the house upset (understandable) and when asked what was wrong by Tiffany, she whispered: “David is dead.”
However, Tiffay began screaming hysterically as she thought Angie was referring to their housemate, David Gest.
To make matters worse, he was lying in bed feeling unwell at the time. Skip forward a few minutes and the whole CBB house ran into the bedroom and ripped the covers off him to check he was still breathing.
Tiffany then began shouting: “She (Angie) told me that David died. Why the f*ck would she do that? She just told me that you were dead. That is so f*cked! Why the f*ck would she do that to me?”
In an awkward turn of events, Tiffany brought out her own range of ‘David is Dead’ t-shirts, which had to be pulled from production after David Gest actually did die shortly afterwards.
Speaking on Twitter, she wrote: “I’m so sad to hear about the passing of [David]. My thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.”
