The telly star – who’s 33 weeks pregnant –  then went on to open up about just how much they’ve grown, revealing that she’s gone up to a G/H, and even thinks they’ll reach a J!

‘I’ve been told when you breastfeed they get even bigger – they’re bigger than my head now’, she confessed.

‘I look like a rugby player! Wither maternity wear, they say to buy your normal size, because they give you the extra, I’d normally be a size 8 jeans but I’m a size 12 plus now! I’ve put on 3st already’.

And it looks like the 33-year-old is keen to go under the knife again, as she said: ‘I definitely want to get them reduced. I want to get them even smaller than before.

‘The plan is we want to have more children, so when I get pregnant again they’re going to get even bigger.

‘I need to get them reduced so they can grow. I’ve looked into it and you have to wait a year but it depends on breastfeeding.’

It comes after Casey recently opened up about how being pregnant has affected her body in a VERY honest Instagram post.

Next to a cute snap of  the expectant mum holding a sign which reads ‘Waddle, it’s a preg swag’, she wrote: ‘Feeling proper preggers now, and counting down the weeks to when our little bundle of joy will be here.

‘People care what I have to say now’: Courtney Act on gender, wardrobe malfunctions and winning CBB

Celebrity Big Brother is usually jam-packed with showmances, controversies and blazing rows, with the lairiest housemate usually emerging as victor.

But this series, the winner was somebody who managed to educate and change the minds of housemates and viewers alike.

Courtney Act, aka Shane Jenek, won the series with 49% of the vote, beating stars including Ann Widdecombe, Shane Lynch and Jess Impiazzi to the crown.

And much of Shane’s popularity came from his ability to explain gender and sexuality to the housemates, and thus the country, without getting into an argument – well, in addition to his glamour and tight tuck.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Shane said: ‘It’s just something that I talk about all the time anyway. I’ve made all these videos about gender and sexuality online – I just made a video for MTV last year breaking it all down. I made videos about feminism, I made videos about vaginas.

‘When I was going into the house, I was glad that I had done all these videos and had done all of this research and was able to recall facts and statistics. I traditionally wasn’t one of those people and I’ve always admired those people and always wondered how you came to be one of those people, and all of a sudden – I’m one of those people I wanted to be! I realised that happens when you read stuff and research stuff. It was like going back to my own version of school and improving my understanding.’

Some of the most heartwarming scenes of the series saw lads’ lads like John Barnes, Andrew Brady and Shane Lynch listening to Shane explain gender fluidity and the difference between being trans and being a drag queen with patience and kidness.

The 35-year-old said: ‘I quickly saw that everybody in the house was really cool, and I think even if the cameras weren’t there they would have been just as respectful. But I do think cameras bring accountability, and in 2018, even in a capitalistic marketing sense, it’s more valuable to a brand to support the LGBT community than it is not to. It’s detrimental not to support marriage equality, even just on a financial level.

‘I was so glad they were so willing to listen and learn and understand.

‘I watched the first episode and saw India’s fight with Amanda – and everyone, and the world – and while I don’t personally understand, I can have compassion for that and see that that type of education doesn’t get you as far as how I like to have conversations. As someone who is passionate about many issues, it is a tactic to push against. So I wondered coming into the house if I would have to take that stance, but it’s not who I am. I’m so glad I didn’t try to be that and do that, and just did what it is that I do.’

Not everyone was as welcoming to different views, though. Notoriously conservative Ann Widdecombe clashed with Shane on a number of issues, and declared herself a ‘defender of the unborn and of traditional marriage’.

Speaking about Ann, Shane told us: ‘I had the fortune of being put into the house after the women and knowing who all the women were. I Googled them all, specifically Ann, I read a lot of articles about her opinions, which were easy to find, there are a lot. Going into it I knew she had voted against every piece of pro-LGBT legislation in the 23 years of parliament, I knew she was anti-abortion, I knew she was pro capital punishment. I didn’t know she didn’t believe in climate change… she’s pro-recycling, that’s one thing we agree on.

‘Interestingly enough, some of her views, on the NHS for example, seem noble. She wants everybody and particulary the least capable members of our society to have fair and free access to healthcare. I feel that way too. We discussed how she would go about doing it – to be honest, I didn’t know enough about the NHS, so while her way made sense, I was getting one person’s view on a story.’

India Willoughby also caused friction, thanks to her announcement that she was ‘dragphobic’ – a claim which was thrown into doubt after photographs emerged of her taking selfies with drag queens.

‘Initially I was like, “Wait a minute”… It kind of undermined the integrity of that story,’ said Shane. ‘Part of me wanted to throw her under the bus in a way. It’s one thing to genuinely feel that way, but it’s another to use that as currency to manipulate the situation.

‘But then I thought after a few hours, “You know what I should do? Message India.” So I did, and she told me she was at Prides and she took photos with different people in a line – you’re not going to say “I can’t take a photo with you because I have a phobia of drag queens”, it’s much easier to do it. Having said that, if you were afraid of snakes or spiders, and someone said take a photo with this spider, you wouldn’t.

‘At the end of day, all I can do is believe what she says or not listen. It’s much easier to discredit her, but it doesn’t help her, it just creates a bigger divide. I suppose in some ways it’s representative of how I chose to deal with things in the house.’

Of course, it wasn’t just serious topics that brought Shane attention in the house. Before the RuPaul’s Drag Race star even entered the Borehamwood bungalow, Courtney Act was awarded live TV infamy when her skirt fell to the ground, showcasing her tuck to the world.

Laughing, Shane said of the wardrobe malfunction: ‘Obviously as I showed later on, I have no qualms about wandering around tucked, but I didn’t expect it to happen then. I had the skirt made the night before, because I had the outfit made but the original outfit was shorts. I loved it so much, but all I got to do was sit in a chair and do VTs – I wanted to wear it all night long and have fun in it. I thought maybe if I got a full-length skirt made, it would be dignified and classy.

‘It had pop studs on it, not a hook and eye – I think because of where it was placed, when I breathed out… Not wearing undies was probably a mistake.’

Now that Shane is out of the house, he has been bombarded with TV opportunities, interviews and attention aplenty – so what’s next for the Aussie drag queen turned CBB winner?

‘I know I’ve got a tour coming up, which is what I’ve always wanted to do. I did a tour last summer, which was amazing, but now instead of doing 100 seat venues I’m doing 1,000 seat venues. It’s unreal. And as well as the live stuff, I’m just looking at other opportunities, television… not so much another existing reality show, but more about creating stuff.

‘Amazing doors have been opened. Everybody that I’ve met has been so nice. People care about what I have to say now, and they want to hear it, and that’s one of the greatest gifts you can be given.’

Courtney Act is taking her Under The Covers show on tour across the UK and Ireland this June – tickets are available via her website.

We don’t know about you but we can’t help thinking the Celebrity Big Brother wrap party might have been a little too much for Ann Widdecombe.

The former MP had every reason to celebrate after finishing runner-up to Courtney Act in Friday night’s final – which obviously included joining the others at the series-end event.

But there was just one thing she had to first – and that was secure herself a pair of ear defenders to cope with the noise.

The 70-year-old was spotted clutching the gadget as she joined the others at the bash, collecting them from Rylan as she appeared on CBBBOTS after the final.

‘Have you got the message by now that I really don’t like noise?’ she asked the presenter.

‘So when I walk away they won’t think I’m being rude.’

Ann finished in second place in the series despite causing controversy with many of her comments in the house – with fellow housemate Andrew Brady later blasting her treatment of Courtney.

The 70-year-old has described herself as a defender of traditional marriage, and repeatedly clashed with her fellow housemate, drag queen Courtney Act, who described her views as harmful to young gay people.

‘But speaking to press after Friday’s final, she said: ‘If I were homophobic I wouldn’t have gay friends’.

She also slammed claims that she is misogynistic, adding: ‘Equality isn’t about special favours; it’s about being on a level playing field. I hate tokenism’.

CBB’s Ann Widdecombe criticises Emma Willis’ interview techniques after awkward dead cat gaffe

Ann Widdecombe may have been the runner-up in this year’s Celebrity Big Brother, but she certainly didn’t go down without a fight.

After it was revealed Courtney Act had won Celebrity Big Brother, Ann sat down with host Emma Willis for her post-eviction interview which didn’t exactly go by without a few bumps.

Asked how she found living with fifteen other people when she usually lives alone, Ann said: ‘Absolutely terrible. There was noise all the time.

‘I was woken up in the morning by loud pop music played by Big Brother, there was even one day when that was followed by an obscene performance.’

Things got awkward however when Emma asked how she was going to cope going back to living alone with her cats, unaware they’re all dead.

Emma asked: ‘How do you think you’re going to fair now just being you with your lovely cats?’

‘Well I don’t have any cats that’s misinformation,’ Anne said.

‘I used to but they died.’

After some awkward giggles, Emma joked: ‘Now she feels awful because I just mentioned her dead cats.’

The awkward only accelerated when Emma went to ask a question she ‘already knew the answer to’ with Ann barking back: ‘So why bother asking it?’

After bringing up conversations in the house where she’s faced numerous disagreements with India Willoughby and Shane J, Emma asked if Ann if the disputes gave her ‘food for thought’.

Ann replied: ‘No. Look you don’t reason yourself to a position over a long number of years, and then suddenly in the course of a couple of conversation decide “Oh I’ve got that wrong”. You’ve reasoned yourself there. That is that position.

‘What I’m pleased about coming second is, is what an endorsement of free speech because whether people agreed with me or not is not the point. I exercised my freedom to say what is unfashionable.’

But will she maybe think differently in future? Emma received a snarky response.

‘No change,’ Ann said. ‘You could try a different line of questioning and you might get a different response. But if you stick with this you’re going to get no no no.’

A bit shocked, Emma replied: ‘Well maybe I’ll get some interviewing tips from you in future.’

Courtney Act however gushed about Andrew Brady while also denying the dress stunt was planned.

Asked how he felt about leaving, Shane said: ‘Three as a number in my life is always good so I’m happy with that.’

He wasn’t too fussed about not winning either, but thanked his Boyzone supporters, adding: ‘From what I’ve witnessed in the house myself, it certainly is a great shoot-out with Ann and Courtney I was hoping that would be the case.

‘The Boyzone supporters have always been there like 25 years of love. Absolute love, and much appreciated.

‘I would have feel like I robbed somebody of a place. I think they are two far greater housemates. They deserve to be in there now for sure.’

The penultimate episode saw ex housemates however all re-enter CBB once again, causing both emotional reunions and vicious arguments.

Ann Widdecombe and India Willoughby both came to verbal blows over gender reassignment surgery once again, all while the newsreader broadcasted live from a VT.

The most heartwarming moment however was Andrew Brady and Shane J coming together once more, until Shane grabbed his arse in the toilet, of course.

Celebrity Big Brother Winner odds

Wayne Sleep is the least likely to win, while Shane J/Courtney Act is the bookies’ favourite to take home the prize.

The latest CBB winner odds are:

Courtney Act 4/7
Ann Widdecombe 7/4
Shane Lynch 16/1
Jess Impiazzi 20/1
Wayne Sleep 80/1

Betfair Spokesperson Katie Baylis said: ‘Courtney has been the favourite on Betfair from almost the moment she entered the Big Brother house and as we head into the final she’s as popular as ever with punters and is now odds-on at 4/7 to be crowned the winner.’

Given that this series has been dubbed Year Of The Woman, and included an all-female launch night with only women in the live audience, it will be interesting to see if the viewing public pick a female winner.
