The messages were mainly to encourage the housemates and to show their support for them. Cee-C’s family however sent a representative who turned out to be her Dad’s P.A, Dana, to speak to her on behalf of the family.
This caused criticism online, as viewers slammed Cee-C’s family for not making her message special, as many accused the family of distancing themselves from her.
Following the bashing from viewers, Cee-C’s sister Vanessa has issued a statement on why they didn’t send a message directly to her.
‘I know some of us would have preferred I did the video. And trust me, I really wanted to. I needed to tell her a whole lot, especially the love from you ALL.
‘Well, when we were Contacted they Requested a selfie video from Anybody apart From the family. It was really short notice. ‘
‘Dana is a family Friend. She was actually part of my bridal train. And We all Know Cee-C has a bad sight. Don’t let no one distract you with non-issue. We totally and fully behind Cee-C. ‘
