Jessica Cunningham didn't tell her boyfriend about CBB
Jessica Cunningham didn't tell her boyfriend that she was going into the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house and, instead, sent him a message asking him to call her agent
Jessica Cunningham didn't tell her boyfriend Courtney Wood she was going in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house - she got her agent to pass on the message to him instead.
The 'Apprentice' stars struck up a relationship while competing on the business show in the summer but it seems their love isn't as perfect as it seems as she didn't even let him know that she had agreed to go into the infamous abode two weeks ago.
He explained: "She only found out 24 hours before. It was all very last minute. She was meant to be coming to London on Friday to see me but she messaged me that morning, telling me to call her agent. She only found out on Thursday evening and I imagine she had a pretty manic night sorting out childcare and her wardrobe and everything. I think it was easier for her to do it through her agent. We had zero opportunity to talk before she went in. They must have taken her phone off her thought. I tried calling but I couldn't get through."
But, despite being shocked at the way he found out about his girlfriend's plans, the 30-year-old businessman still decided to pass her on a message of luck through her agent.
He explained: "It's fine! I passed her a message of luck through her agent. She'd been speaking to 'Big Brother' for a month or so about going on the show. I understand it. The money will set her kids up for life. I would never get in the way of her doing that. Her kids mean the absolute world to her. I'd never stop her from doing that. Ever."
Jessica - who has three daughters from a previous relationship - came under fire last week after she was caught on camera flirting up a storm with her housemate Calum Best.
Courtney said: "I know how things work on TV. I came from a very edited programme in 'The Apprentice', so I understand that producers will try and create storylines."
