Nicola McLean stands by her comments about Kim Woodburn not being a mum in CBB house
Nicola McLean has defended the comments she made during her heated row with Kim Woodburn on Celebrity Big Brother.
During their time on the Channel 5 series, Kim and Nicola repeatedly bumped heads to say the least. One of the most controversial arguments that aired involved Nicola reminding Kim that she is not a mum.
The comment caused outrage among viewers, many of whom thought Nicola was deliberately referencing the tragic stillbirth that the How Clean Is Your House star suffered when she was younger.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Nicola admitted: “I did not know that this woman had had a stillborn baby so do I regret saying it? No. I didn’t say it in malice.
“Do you think I knew that she had a stillborn baby? Do you think that I’ve read Kim Woodburn’s autobiography? The only book I’ve ever read is one by Katie Price.”
Nicola continued: “She said for the second time ‘your children won’t be proud of you’ and I said to her ‘the reason why you say those things is because you’re not a mother.’
“Hold on a minute, judge my parenting if my children were watching Big Brother. You think my six and ten year old watch one episode? Of course they f***ing didn’t.”
Nicola’s comments follow Kim’s interview on ITV’s Loose Women yesterday.
The cleaning professional told the panel: “Well Nicola had a gob that was so disgusting it needed stitching up.
“Nicola came out with the cruellest things, she doesn’t know me from Adam, she said brutal things to me, horrible and nasty – thank God you’ve never been a mother.”
Celebrity Big Brother will return for a summer series later this year to Channel 5.
