London - Producers of reality-TV show Celebrity Big Brother say David Bowie's ex-wife Angie has decided to remain on the program despite his death.

Angie Bowie is appearing on the British show, whose contestants must live together in a house, cut off from the outside world and be filmed by ever-present cameras.

The show's publicists said on Monday that she had been told of Bowie's death by her representatives off-camera and "has taken the decision to continue in the program."

"The decision to remain in the house is entirely her choice, and she has been given the option to leave at any time if she changes her mind," the show said in a statement.

"Appropriate support will be available to Angie at any time if needed."

Bowie and Mary Angela Barnett married in 1970 and divorced in 1980. They have one son, the filmmaker Duncan Jones.
