There have been complaints of racism against Shilpa Shetty, with Jade Goody among the accused. Goody has apologised to Shetty and said that she does not judge people "by the colour of their skin." The pair who are up for eviction giggled and hugged each other, with Shilpa telling Jade: "I don't think you're racist."
Meanwhile Teletext reports that Chancellor Gordon Brown has given his support to the Shetty. His visit to India has been overshadowed by the claims that the Bollywood actress is the victim of racism in the Big Brother house. Brown told reporters that a vote for Shilpa was "a vote for tolerance."
Ofcom have confirmed that they have received 38,000 complaints. However viewing figures continued to rise with last nights show peaking with 5.9 million people tuning in.
Also, there will be no crowds outside the Celebrity Big Brother house for the eviction show, Channel 4 has confirmed.
Channel 4 said in a statement : "Over the past few days, Celebrity Big Brother has generated an intense and, at times, heated public debate which the evicted housemate will be unaware of, as a result, Channel 4 and Endemol have taken the decision to conduct tonight's eviction in front of a studio audience and without a crowd."
