Big Brother 2013: Gina Rio involved in new 'race row' with fellow housemates

Gina Rio (Big Brother 2013)

Another argument over race stormed the Big Brother house this week, although it wasn't nearly as dramatic as the previous clash.

Now evicted housemate Jemima Slade was given an official warning after Gina accused her of being a racist for saying she wouldn't "generally go for a black guy".

And it looked like issues about race have continued to cause tension in the house, with the latest upset coming between Gina and Dexter Koh.

It also seems as though Big Brother's harsh warnings are leaving the housemates thinking twice about their comments in the house.

Over 100 complaints were made to Ofcom over the row between Gina and Jemima, not because of the comments but because of the warning issued to Jemima.

This week saw Charlie likened Gina to Angelina Jolie’s character Lola in the film Shark Tale, with Charlie admitting she wanted to call Gina "black version" of the animated Character, but explained: “I did not want to say black.

Dexter tried to correct Charlie, claiming that Gina was “mixed race”, but his comments just wound her up.

Gina reportedly "hit the roof", saying: “I am black! It’s the right word to say.”
