Celebrity Big Brother 14 summer 2014 launch show - Kellie Maloney

Former boxing promoter Kellie Maloney has revealed that she had a private bathroom during her stay on Celebrity Big Brother 2014.

The 61-year-old – formerly named Frank – entered the fourteenth series last month amid much publicity, after it was revealed that she is now living life as a woman.

Maloney, who eventually became the fifth housemate to be evicted, has since revealed that she had special clauses written in to her contract to aid her gender transition.

She apparently had access to her own bathroom, while bosses were banned from recording footage of her without her wig on.

Maloney explained to the Irish Mirror: “I spoke at length to Big Brother producers about clauses that would protect the situation I was in. They were not allowed to film me sleeping in case my wig fell off and I was allowed a private bathroom.

“I had come so far I didn’t want anyone to ever see me as Frank again.”

Reports prior to launch suggested that Maloney was the highest paid housemate, on a £400,000 deal. It is not known where her bathroom was located within the house.

This isn’t the first time that Celebrity Big Brother has given special privileges to its stars.

During the seventh run in 2010 – the last one to air on Channel 4 – Ivana Trump was allowed to wear a watch in the house, despite the show’s rules traditionally banning contestants from taking in their own timepieces.

Bosses have also attracted criticism over the past two years for letting three housemates have access to the outside world so they could complete other work commitments.

    Despite the fact it goes against BB fundamentals, I can understand the reasons given. So for once, a fair change to the rules from Big Brother!

    Abject crap. The rules are (or used to be ) the rules. If you don’t like the rules don’t take the fee.
    What really gets up my vest is the arrogant way that BB lie to us. It is obvious why they never give us proper Live Feed – they are fully aware that we will see all the contestants clear off down the hotels for the night.
    Big Brother are abject liars and deserve nothing from the fans. To be honest they can stick their scripted reality up their deceitful arses. Its not BB and it will never be BB.

    I don’t really know about this, to be honest. I’m pretty sure the British public would have accepted her as a woman, given their past track record with Nadia and Luke A. But given that there is still transphobia lingering around, it does also seem justified.
