David Bowie's ex-wife Angie broke down on Celebrity Big Brother on learning of his sudden death from cancer.

The couple split after 10 years and have one son, the successful film director Duncan Zowie Haywood Jones, 44.

Sitting in the Diary Room, an emotional Angie said: "I haven't seen him for so many years. I can't make a big drama out of it ... I just feel like an era has ended with his passing ... I'm so very sad."

Through tears she later added: "Stardust is gone."

She has been in the house since January 5 and opted to stay in after learning of her former husband's death.

Talking to fellow house mates about her decision, she said: "I'd prefer to be here but I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't.

"If I don't leave I look callous. If I stay I look callous."

The 66-year-old former model had previously spoken about her ex-husband several times after entering the house and accused him of turning their son against her.

She said: "I don't see him (Duncan) at all. He doesn't like me. But my daughter loves me, so it's good."

On the question of why her son chose not to see her, she said: "I guess David told him not to."
