Celebrity Big Brother housemate breaks down in tears after bosses break rule for her

Celebrity Big Brother housemate breaks down in tears after bosses break rule for her

ITV producers will surprise the American contestant during tonight's instalment

There will be some eyebrow-raising rule breaking taking place in the Celebrity Big Brother house during tonight's instalment.

And surprisingly enough, it's not the big-name contestants that have been disobeying the strict restrictions of the show - it's the producers themselves - and the consequences has left one housemate in floods of tears.

That's right, in a preview from tonight's instalment, much-loved American actor Marisha Wallace is seen shedding a few years tears for a reason that you may not have expected.

Usually, when a contestant cracks, it's because they've either had a massive row, or managed to go all the way and win the entire series.

In this case, however, 38-year-old Marisha - best known for having appeared in the original Broadway casts of Aladdin (2014) and Something Rotten! (2015) - will become utterly overcome with emotion after being told some important news from the outside world.

During tonight's show the ITV garden will be transformed into a fun-fair - ready for the housemates to vote face-to-face.

Marisha was seen breaking down in tears.

Playing on one of the 'wheel of fortune' machines, Marisha receives a note, which reads: "There are exciting things ahead, on Sunday 14th April, you will be sitting at the Olivier Awards as a nominee."

For those unfamiliar with the star's achievements in the world of theatre, Marisha was being informed that she'd earned a nomination at the Olivier's for the Best Actress in a Musical category for her performance in Guys & Dolls at the Bridge Theatre.

On top of this, the performing arts veteran will be going up against the likes of Pussycat Dolls bombshell Nicole Scherzinger, 45, in the illustrious category.

Breaking down in tears of joy at the delightful news, Marisha's fellow celebs rush over to her, congratulating her for her colossal achievement.

The news of tonight's antics have somewhat come as a shock to some fans of the show, who have pointed out that ITV - and Big Brother's previous broadcasters Channel 4 and 5 - previously had tight restrictions on contestants receiving news from the outside world.

Despite their confusion, an insider from the much-loved show has since told the Daily Mail: "Producers decided to give Marisha a message about her OIivier Award nomination.

"It is a big moment in her life and now she will never forget how she found out, surrounded by her co-stars in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

"She was taken aback from the news and truly overcome with emotion."
