The Big Brother Bullying Row II: The Making Of A Tabloid Enemy

THE Big Brother Bully story cranks up a notch, working its way up from yesterday’s front page of the Star to the Mirror’s lead news story.

“Exclusive,” announces the paper, “Big Brother in bullying row – Channel embroiled in shocker more shameful than Jade’s Shilpa attack.”

Good news indeed for those of you who enjoyed the organised bigotry of Celebrity Big Brother past but feared you’d never see the likes again.

Like the Mirror, we look over yesterday’s news and hear Alexandra De Gale telling one Rachel Rice: “You’re getting on my f*****g nerves – I don’t give a f*** what you think.”

Not since Anorak caught the No.38 bus yesterday morning has such language been heard in public. For shame.

The Mirror solicits a response from Bullying UK and BullyingUK, which might be the same thing, and says that Ofcom was yesterday “investigating more than 200 complaints” and “a Channel Four source confirmed the station had received a similar level”.

How these complaints are investigated, we are not told, neither are we told if the calls were made by one person, say a disgruntled viewer or a Channel 4 PR.

We should be told…
