CBB winner Courtney Act reveals whether THAT infamous wardrobe malfunction was staged

Was the drag queen's entrance slip-up planned from the start?

Courtney Act has finally revealed the truth behind her unforgettable entrance to the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The former Drag Race star, who beat former Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe to be crowned series winner on Friday (February 2), caused quite the stir last month when her dress fell off not once but twice as she entered the infamous Elstree compound and met her fellow housemates.

The incident divided viewers and housemates, with some accusing Act of staging the mishap.

Housemate Amanda Barrie certainly didn't buy it, telling Wayne Sleep during her time in the house that she didn't "trust" Act, real name Shane Jenek.

"I've worked with so many drag queens in my time and they are perfectionists," the former Coronation Street actress said.

"I have never seen one drop his props on the way in." 

Wayne agreed, saying: "How could you possibly drop a whole f**king frock?"

Courtney was quizzed about the incident by host Emma Willis following her exit from the house on Friday, and it seems we can finally put the rumours to bed once and for all.

"Of course it wasn't planned!" Act revealed during her winner's interview.

"I'm not going to flash my gash to the whole nation."

Well, perhaps not intentionally Courtney, but flash it you certainly did. And we love you all the more for it.
