Celebrity Big Brother gets Ofcom complaints over Sarah and Chad's 'intimacy'

Chad Johnson and Sarah Harding.

Celebrity Big Brother has been hit by more Ofcom complaints, this time over Sarah Harding and Chad Johnson's bedroom antics.

The couple were seen getting intimate during their bed together this week and despite the warnings, some viewers have still complained.


The Sun reports that official objections have been made to TV watchdog Ofcom over the scenes.

A spokesperson for the telly regulator said: "We will assess these complaints before deciding whether or not to investigate.”

According to the tabloid, producers on the Channel 5 show have been careful with their editing to remove the most 'graphic' moments.

"There's a lot of heavy petting going down between the couple," a source said "Sarah's hand disappeared under the covers and Chad's boxers came off.

"Viewers can draw their own conclusions about what happens - but it's pretty clear."

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 was previously hit with a raft of complaints over racism, homophobia and sexism earlier this series.


The biggest issue brought up by viewers was Paul Danan and Karthik Nagesan's 'race row' following an argument where Paul pronounced Karthik's name wrong.

More Ofcom complaints concerned apparent sexism, bullying and promotion of alcohol and substance abuse in an episode where Sarah Harding rowed with now evicted Paul.

More complaints alleged a supposed homophobic comment, objected to food waste due when Jordan Davies carried a fish around for a task and Brandi Glanville’s revealing outfit on launch night.

Accusations of sexist language and even claims of sexual assault were also made by complainants.

A rep for Celebrity Big Brother declined to comment.


Celebrity Big Brother 2017 continues tonight at 9PM.

The final airs this Friday evening with host Emma Willis as the winner is crowned.
