Fame-hungry glamour model Josie Cunningham has postponed her abortion after she was rejected by TV's Big Brother.

Cunningham caused outrage after she said she wanted an abortion to improve her chances of appearing on the popular TV show.

Big Brother bosses were reportedly said to have turned cold towards her after finding out she was pregnant.

But now they say they do not want her, regardless of whether she has the abortion.

The 23-year-old, who is 18 weeks pregnant, has fled home after receiving death threats.

A source said: "Josie is terrified. She doesn't know what to do or which way to turn. She's had scores of death threats and is frightened to go home.

"She postponed the abortion because of the threats. But it has made her wonder whether life is more important than fame."

She considered abortion after the Channel 5 show rejected her after hearing she was pregnant.

"I'm finally on the verge of becoming famous and I'm not going to ruin it now," she previously said.

"An abortion will further my career. This time next year I won't have a baby. Instead, I'll be famous, driving a bright pink Range Rover and buying a big house. Nothing will get in my way."

But a TV source said: "How can we work with her if she admits having an abortion to achieve that?"

People could not hold back their anger on Twitter when they heard what she was contemplating.

Only recently she was excitedly tweeting a scan picture of her unborn child.

She said: "At first I thought thank God it's a footballer or a doctor and not a Big Issue seller and they have money.

"Suddenly I was pregant and I could get free dental work on the NHS, so I got a tooth straightened for cosmetic reasons, and it all seemed great.

"But then I started to think. I didn't want to be famous for having a ­footballer's baby or for being the girl who had a kid by someone who paid for sex.

"I want to be famous for being me – Josie Cunningham, a glamour model and celebrity in my own right. If I want to do that I need to put my career first. I want the attention to be on me, not on who fathered my child."

Cunningham outraged the public in 2013 when she demanded a £4,800 boob job on the NHS after claiming that being flat-chested had ruined her life.
