Ann Widdecombe has said that she was surprised to be kept on Celebrity Big Brother as her views on many social issues are far from being massively supported (mildly speaking). “I mean, when I consider that I’m a pensioner and a defender of the unborn and traditional marriage and the Roman Catholic Church, all of which are unfashionable views, and that I am the scourge of political correctness and general snowflakery and emotional incontinence, I think it’s surprising that I’m still here,” she said, meaning her opposition of same-sex marriages and abortions. After marriage equality was introduced in 2014, Ann attacked Prime Minister David Cameron for introducing the law, saying she felt “alienated by gay marriage”. During an early episode of the show, Ann clashed with India Willoughby and Courtney Act over the way marriage should be defined.“I’m sure nobody was expecting me to get to the final. Everyone thinks I’m a miserable old bat and they’re probably extremely surprised that I’ve got anywhere near the final,” she said.
