Drag star and Celebrity Big Brother contestant Courtney Act slammed her housemates for their ‘fragile heterosexuality’ during Tuesday’s episode of the reality show.

In a discussion about having sex with a male train driver, housemates Andrew Brady and Daniel O’Reilly threw out several remarks that visibly irritated Courtney.

Andrew said that sleeping with a male train driver or having fantasies about it would be a: “One-way ticket to gay town.”

Courtney then attempted to correct Andrew’s remarks, saying that sexuality is fluid and that it is not necessarily defined by the acts a person does.

“One way ticket to exploratory town,” she attempted to clarify.

Courtney, who identifies as genderqueer, has been enlightening the house on several issues around gender and sexuality.

Despite Courtney’s attempt to educate the pair, Andrew then replied: “You cant come back from that town.”

As Courtney tried once again to correct Andrew’s outdated views, she was met with a harsh rebuke from fellow housemate and comedian Daniel, who promptly said: “shut up mate.”

Courtney was undeterred and said to the pair: “this is the problem with your fragile heterosexuality.

“I’ve had sex with many straight men who have returned with their masculinity and heterosexuality.”

Andrew then topped off his remarks by saying in return: “it takes a real man to take a dick up your arse.”

During their time in the house, Andrew and Courtney have had several potentially romantic or sexual moments, though they have said that there is no ‘funny business’ between the pair known as ‘Courtdrew.’

Andrew admitted to having a crush on Courtney during an episode last week, prior to a scene that showed Andrew and Shane kissing at the prompting of another housemate.

Andrew has also been criticised by viewers for remarks made earlier on the show that confused a person’s biological sex and their gender expression.

“If Courtney didn’t have a dick I’d go to town with that,” he said to housemate Rachel Johnson.

Many CBB viewers took to Twitter to criticise Andrew for these remarks, with one viewer calling him ‘judgemental’ and his comments ‘transphobic trash.’

Housemate Daniel also made other questionable comments during Tuesday’s episode of Celebrity Big Brother.

In an earlier part of the show, when it was discovered that neither Ashley or Jess would like to have sex with Daniel, he responded scathingly by calling them both: “f***ing lesbians.”
