Celebrity Big Brother's Ofcom complaints will NOT be investigated

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Celebrity Big Brother won't be investigated by Ofcom, the TV watchdog has revealed.

A new report out from the television regulator today dismissed more than 400 complaints about this year's show.

Objections ranged from accusations of race discrimination, use of offensive language, footage of sexual material and generally accepted standards.

During the show this summer, various incidents prompted complaints including Marnie Simpson and Lewis Bloor's naked 'romp' in the shower to Aubrey O'Day spitting in Stephen Bear's food and drink.

There were also Bear's daily pranks and claims of bullying.

But Ofcom said the various complaints did not raise issues warranting investigation.

While Celebrity Big Brother still notched up almost twice as many complaints as any other programme over the past month the numbers are some of the lowest for the show.

The last series of Celebrity Big Brother back in January finished with a total of 2,025 complaints to Ofcom, and that was 500 down on the previous winter run last year.

Behind Celebrity Big Brother the most complained about show this past month was Channel 4's nude dating series Naked Attraction which despite the name still saw 250 complaints over nudity, all of which were dismissed by Ofcom.
