"I cannot live with dirt," she said in the pre-recorded segment, showing the theatre star being driven to the castle. "I am completely OCD about everything in my life being organised, clean, neat and tidy."

Arlene has not publicly confirmed whether she suffers from OCD, and many viewers took issue with her comment and with ITV for keeping it in the episode.
