Epileptic Katie Hopkins is thought to have her own bedroom in the Celebrity Big Brother House
Katie has previously hinted that she has her own bedroom inside the House – though Channel 5 are refusing to comment on the matter. During launch night streaming, Katie told the Housemates not to count her in the beds, as she has her own.
“I’m not here, I’m not here,” she was heard saying. “I can go and be on my own.”
Alicia Douvall added: “She’s got her own bed.”
However when bbspy approached Channel 5, they refused and replied with “No comment”. It is thought that Katie has been given her own room due to her epilepsy, and that she suffers suffers seizures due to the condition.
Katie briefly discussed the issue with Perez Hilton: “I just wake up, go back to sleep, wake up, go back to sleep with my little fit things.
“Since twenty, it just came on. That’s how a lot of people get it, a bang to the head, but mine’s just missing a bit of brain. That might be apparent right? I’ve seen the bit missing, I’ve seen the scan. It’s really freaky.”
Katie isn’t the first person to have a private bedroom in the House. During Big Brother 2011, Pamela Anderson visited the Big Brother House and had her own room which wasn’t fitted with cameras. La Toya Jackson also had a private bedroom during the sixth edition of Celebrity Big Brother in 2009 which was fitted with cameras.
Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm, with a live twist at 10pm.
