Celebrity Big Brother’s Amanda Barrie struck a special deal with producers to ’ban them from showing her without her wig on’

AMANDA Barrie struck a deal with Celebrity Big Brother bosses to “ban them from showing her without a wig on”.

The Daily Star claims the former Coronation Street actress made the stipulation a condition before she agreed to sign up to the show.

Amanda wasn't the only celebrity this year who got special treatment, with insiders claiming Ann Widdecombe was given her own private bathroom.

They claimed that “no footage would be broadcast showing her getting ready,” although she did allow herself to be filmed while applying make up.

Amanda, 82, was one of this year’s fan favourites, despite being voted out before tonight’s final.

Courtney Act, Wayne Sleep, Jess Impiazzi, Tory MP Ann and Shane Lynch will find out later who is the winner of this year's series.

Before going onto Celebrity Big Brother, Amanda wowed her fans by appearing on the second series of The Real Marigold Hotel TV series.

The show, which is inspired by the hit movie, saw Amanda and other celebrities travel across India to see if they would be able to hack retiring overseas.

The second series featured TV host Bill Oddie, Paul Nicholas from ‘80s sitcom Just Good Friends, singer Sheila Ferguson, entertainer Lionel Blair,  snooker player Dennis Taylor and TV personality Rustie Lee.

Actress Amanda also starred as inmate Bev Tull from the fifth to last series of ITV prison series Bad Girls.

She's been in a number of pantomime roles, including playing the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella in the Grand Theatre, Blackpool.

Amanda has  also starred in Doctors for nine episodes, Benidorm and took part as one of the celebrities in Hell’s Kitchen in 2004.

On September 14, 2014, she married her current spouse, English crime novelist Hilary Bonner.

In an interview on Loose Women, she revealed that she didn’t come out as gay in case she was fired from her job.
