Big Brother should come with an “Approved by the Ministry for Morals” sticker. The good get to win; the bad get to lose. The bigots are shunned and mocked; the enlightened get loved and panto.

This series has seen the back of Jermy Jackson (who he?) for alleged groping; Ken Morley for alleged racism; and now Alexander O’Neal for alleged homnphobia, his crime calling the immensley dislikable Perez Hilton a ‘f*****’. That’s ‘faggot’ in Sun -speak, the paper also telling us that Morley used the “N-word”, which turns out not to be ‘nigger’ but ‘negro’
