Celebrity Big Brother final broadcast with '10 minute delay' following break-ins

Courtney is no stranger to being an outspoken advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and issues affecting them; as she often does on her YouTube Channel and on her MTV clips.

Widdecombe said she was "thoroughly bemused" to come second on the show.

"It was an endorsement of free speech, whether people agreed with me or not". "I don't want to say there's manipulation going on, but there's manipulation going on".

"We certainly do need more people talking about it in a more level-headed, kind, and compassionate way".

Host Emma Willis then asked Courtney about her role in educating both fellow housemates and viewers about gender and sexuality. He's just so comfortable about everyone and everything, just knowing who he is.
