Celebrity Big Brother 2014: Ofcom complaints over 'porn task'

LUISA TASK

TV watchdog Ofcom is dealing with complaints over the latest Celebrity Big Brother 2014 task.

In Sunday night's latest highlights show we saw the housemates take part in a kinky task that saw half of them dress up in PVC outfits before acting out life in a seedy strip club.

The remaining contestants had been split up into two rooms, one with a U certificate and one with an 18 certificate. The two groups each had to provide content for us viewers that met their room's rating.

U certificate room housemates - Dappy, Casey, Jim, Linda and Liz - were all dressed in clown type outfits, with character ‘Mr Monkey’ making an appearance. The task included Dappy
singing ‘when you’re happy and you know it’ the housemates being slapped in the face with pies.

18 certificate room housemates - Jasmine, Lee, Ollie, Luisa, Lionel and Sam - meanwhile were seen pole dancing, stripping and making plenty of sexual innuendo, as well as telling scary stories by torchlight.

Despite Channel 5 cutting out the more extreme talk and routines - including Luisa and Jasmine's 'lesbian sex act' - some viewers have still complained.

A spokesman for Ofcom confirmed: "We've received complaints, which we will look at but no decision at this stage has been made to investigate."

A spokesperson for Channel 5 declined to comment.

While the images and scenes that did make it to air were hardly x-rated (despite the Daily Star's best efforts to portray them as such), the task did seem a rather cheap and tacky way of causing headlines.

We're still not entirely sure what the point was and were rather surprised with the willingness of all the housemates to go along with it.

But then, it is Big Brother.
