Claire Richards broke down in tears when her letter from home was destroyed in the Celebrity Big Brother house

Claire Richards has been struggling to cope without her family during her time in the Celebrity Big Brother house and Speidi haven’t been helping the situation. 

The American couple ruined Claire’s chances of receiving a letter from home by refusing to take part in a task that meant they would have had to spend a few hours apart. 

‘It’s been quite emotionally draining today, for everyone,’ Claire told Big Brother as she broke down in tears in the diary room.

‘If anyone with any sense of decency, whether it’s your persona or not, would do such a thing, that’s callous.’

Claire was visibly upset by the decision made by Heid Montag and Spencer Pratt, especially when they started to mock her by clapping in her face as it was announced by Big Brother that Claire would not receive her letter.

The other housemates were not afraid to show their anger towards the couple .

Rylan Clark vented his anger, shouting at the camera, ‘Clapping in the face of a crying woman? F*cking disgraceful, that’s heartless, she’s got kids.’

‘I just can’t believe anyone can be so heartless,’ Razor said.

Both Heidi and Spencer have distanced themselves from the other housemates, with a clear divide now developing in the house.
