In Wednesday’s (17 January) highlights show, Jess was seen talking with Amanda Barrie about living through World War II, the model was heard double-checking that “World War III” hadn’t happened yet.
Reflecting on her childhood during the war, Amanda told her housemate: “Up where we lived on the moors, my grandpa once took me up there to watch Manchester burning during the Blitz.
