“I rarely get hurt doing what I love & sometimes the injuries come by accident from the most unexpected things.”

Two-time Big Brother winner Reggie Bird, and close friend of Estelle’s in the house, also shared her condolences, commenting: “Oh my goodness @estelleey when is sh-t gonna stop happening to you! Love you ❤️❤️❤️.”

She returned to the house in 2022 for a second chance at the crown.

After being saved from a double elimination with Reggie and given a second chance by Big Brother himself, Estelle failed to beat newbie Taras and was voted out by her fellow housemates.

Reflecting on her journey on Instagram, the star wrote: “Hard to go out the way I did but at least it was with an open heart.

“I tried my best to play with kindness and with strength and compassion.”
