Celebrity Big Brother
Lloyd joined Celebrity Big Brother on 3 January 2007, at the start of the series. Lloyd incurred significant negative publicity about her, Jade Goody, and Jo O’Meara’s involvement in the racial controversy with rival housemate Shilpa Shetty.
A large upsurge in complaints occurred after a conversation between Lloyd and O’Meara was shown, during which Lloyd mentioned that she didn’t like Shetty touching her food because she didn’t “know where her hands have been”.
Lloyd, O’Meara and Goody repeatedly maintained a belief that Shetty was “fake”, and “a mole”.
The tensions in the house came to a peak on Day 15, when an explosive argument between Shetty and Goody erupted, seemingly over stock cubes. Witnessed by a giggling O’Meara and Lloyd.
