James Cosmo is part of his 'Celebrity Big Brother' housemates' Whatsapp group but won't let his fellow contestants send any naughty pictures
James Cosmo has banned his former 'Celebrity Big Brother' housemates from sending any raunchy pictures over their WhatsApp group chat.
The 67-year-old 'Game of Thrones' star is part of the exclusive "CBB Homies" group on the messenger set up by Stacy Francis as a way of the housemates keeping in touch with each other but there are some things the contestants aren't allowed to do.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "NO, NO, NO [laughs] James C is on it, we respect James C, so we're not going to do that. He is used to it though - he lived with us for a month so he knows what we're like."
But not all housemates are privy to the chats - Stacy previously banned Kim Woodburn from the housemates reunion after she said she brought unnecessary "drama" to the house and now she's excluded her from their messaging app group.
Stacy, 47, explained: "We all have a WhatsApp group that we all talk to each other - it's kind of daily now - I call it 'My CBB Homies'. Everybody's on it, except Kim (Woodburn) Kim is not on it. I've got Bianca, Callum Best, Colleen, James C and me and Nicola, I got like the whole crew but I don't have Jasmine on it, I don't have Austin on it, or Kim and Jessica. Everybody else is on there."
And with plenty of outbursts in the 'CBB' house, there is bound to be many more over the social app, and Stacy revealed: "Nicola is the most vocal on it. She tweeted last week that our WhatsApps are the best, we just laugh so hard on WhatsApp. We message them and sometimes they're quiet and we're the only ones on there cracking up but she's really awesome, she has quickly become my best friend."
And keen to strike up friendships with old acquaintances, Stacy has been pressing ahead to join Sinitta in the growing harem of 'X Factor' judge Simon Cowell, as he was a judge on the American version of the talent show when Stacy was a contestant back in 2011.
She said: "I went to see a musical called 'Beautiful' and I took Sinitta and her mum because I met Sinitta when I did Bit on the Side, she is such a sweetheart, so we've been WhatsApp-ing and stuff so I invited her to my concert and to see Beautiful. She and I have become really good friends, she is the closest I have gotten to Simon yet, I do look forward to it because I am very close."
