Celebrity Big Brother 2014: Over 300 complaints to Ofcom already


More than 340 complaints have been made to Ofcom over the current series of Celebrity Big Brother 2014.

100 were made over Evander Holyfield's 'homophobic comments' that suggested being gay wasn't normal and could be 'fixed'.

He has since been evicted from the house.

50 people complained to the TV watchdog over Dappy's 'sexist remarks' in his argument with Luisa, while a further 40 wrote in over a Jacuzzi scene.

And another 47 complaints were made over the weekend's certificate 18 task which saw some of the housemates take part in pole dancing and stripping.

Chief moaner Vivienne Pattison from professional moaning organisation Mediawatch had this to moan about: "Celebrity Big Brother has always been manipulative – but this was specifically asking contestants to create 18-certified footage.

"It is not a free-for-all after the watershed.

"There is nothing stopping an eight-year-old going on to the Channel 5 on demand online content and ticking a box to say they are old enough to watch this sexual content."

So there you have it folks, all TV should be suitable for an 8-year-old so that parents needn't bother to keep an eye on what their kids get up to when on the internet.

Afterall, watching Big Brother is the worst thing any child could do online, right?

A spokesman for Ofcom confirmed earlier this week: “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.

Celebrity Big Brother 2014 airs nightly on Channel 5.
