The 66-year-old model and actress left the house earlier than expected on medical grounds and admits she felt as though producers were "harvesting for sorrow" throughout the series.

She said: "You don't get paid your fee when you go for medical reasons; there's a clause where you would get a per day rate. I really wasn't that worried about it one way or the other."

Of her time in the house, she added: "You unscramble the reality that they are data harvesting for sorrow and chaos. I​ did not expect anything. It did not occur to me that they would not lighten it up with good stuff.

"I kind of assumed the older ones amongst us would be the light relief, while they did all their bossing around with the showmance possibilities [of everyone else].​"

And when David Bowie, her ex-husband, passed away during her time in the house, she was informed of the news off camera and admits it "did not sink immediately".

When asked if she thought the news was some sick joke, she told ITV's Loose Women: "​It did not sink in immediately. I must be honest, I didn't think they would sink that low.

"I looked at my agent and thought, 'No, he would not be party to this.'"
