Celebrity Big Brother House Is The Worst Thing Ever

Renowned television presenter 44-year-old Gail Porter (Scotland) has had a memory of a ‘hellish’ experience in her past. She says being in Channel 5's Big Brother is the worst thing ever. Gail, who is living with alopecia, a condition of disappearing hair including eyelashes and eyebrows, bares her heart recently after being evicted from the show. She spent 20 days in the CBB house. 

Talking to the DailyMail, she said: ‘The worst thing ever. And I should know, I’ve been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.’
