Trisha Goddard’s daughter broke down in tears in tonight’s episode of The Bridge after clashing with a contestant who she believes ‘doesn’t like her mum’ – and she’s gutted about the whole thing.
Billie Dee, 30, locked horns with Sly, 30, as tensions began to rise within the group on how best to go about constructing the bridge.
Before the war of words, Billie had revealed she is Trisha’s daughter during a game of two truths and a lie, to which Sly responded: ‘No wonder you’re so rude, you take after your damn mother.’
Things, however, heated up when Sly, who hadn’t been involved in the building of the structure, made suggestions to the others about how to get everyone motivated in completing the mammoth project.
Not convinced that Sly had grounds to comment, Billie quipped: ‘You go and have a go [at building] before you say anything.’
But Sly hit back and shouted: ‘You don’t get down my neck.’
The conversation quickly slipped into a shouting match, with Billie snapping: ‘I don’t think you understand how hard this is’, before walking out in tears.
Discussing the situation, Billie told the cameras: ‘He just dominates every conversation and then shouts at everybody else who tries to contribute. What do I do? Just not speak from now on? Anything I say hes’ going to attack me.
‘I feel like Sly is creating a hostile environment. I don’t think he likes me, and I don’t think he likes my mum, and that annoys me.’
Speaking to Metro.co.uk about the dramatic scenes, Billie said she was ‘gutted’ to be involved in a conflict so early on.
‘I was really quite stern with myself about not getting involved in conflicts and then I was just absolutely gutted I was involved in one so early on, especially the fact he brought my mum into it,’ she said.
‘I think that’s why I got emotional, because I went on that show to be me and to sort of get away from the whole Trisha’s daughter thing.’
Billie continued: ‘The fact he brought my mum into it, I was just devastated. It had nothing to do with her and I think that’s why I got emotional.
‘I don’t usually get emotional in little confrontations like that, but I just thought if this reflects badly on mum then I’ve really messed up.’
Although tensions between Billie and Sly reached boiling point in episode one, Billie assured us that things do begin to simmer between the pair.
Will we see him take a more active role in building the bridge? Only time will tell…
The Bridge continues on Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4.
