Ofcom look into Celebrity Big Brother racism
Ofcom has revealed that its has received 2,00 complaints about the show since it began. The majority of the complaints have been about the treatment of Bollywoowd actress Shilpa Shetty. Jade Goody, Danielle Lloyd and Jo O'Meara have been seen ganging up on Shetty in the past few days. Ofcom said the number of complaints had risen from 200 on Monday morning to 2,000 on Tuesday. But Channel 4 has described the situation as "girly rivalry".
Big Brother evictee Carole Malone believes that the incidents are motivated by jealousy.
"Shilpa is too good-looking for her own good," she told the Asian Network.
