On 16 January 2007 this series had attracted the largest ever number of public complaints to the UK broadcasting watchdog Ofcom about a Big Brother series.[4] The complaints received detailed concerns that housemate Shilpa Shetty had been subjected to bullying, allegedly with undertones of racism.[5] As an example, Danielle Lloyd called Shilpa "a dog" and that she should "fuck off home". This sparked widespread anger and demonstrations in India, where the alleged racism was reported on the news, and led Big Brother's main sponsor Carphone Warehouse to suspend its sponsorship of the show.[6] As of January 19, 2007, a Channel 4 spokesman agreed that participants should be made aware of the controversy, probably explaining the recent explanations and apologies tendered by the housemates and their complete lack of surprise after learning about the latest eviction.[7][8] is the 16th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The House

House plan with the House Next Door highlighted.

The general layout of the House was largely untouched from the previous non-celebrity series. The living room and bedroom had no noticeable changes. There were several single beds in the same room, with one double bed, meaning that two housemates (Leo & Donny) had to share. The bathroom is much smaller than previous versions and the toilet and shower were no longer fitted with cameras. The dining room table was moved inside, and the kitchen fully equipped with modern conveniences. Outside the garden was a three-jet hot tub with a farmyard seating area. The bridge to Nowhere was still present, leading to a sitting area with heated seats and the topiary man. A workout area was situated just off the kitchen area. Inside the House there was also a fax machine built into the wall. On day 24 this was used to post viewers' questions to the housemates.[11] Meanwhile, the Diary Room was identical to the previous summer's Big Brother, with an oversized gold chair and padded walls, the only change being the addition of yellow lights facing the walls. The House Next Door was used again, and its interior was re-designed to resemble a Victorian style kitchen, with uncomfortable beds in the bedroom, for use in the master-and-servant task.

Notes

Note 1: When Jade, Jack, and Jackiey entered the house they became "masters" along with Jermaine, Ken, and Shilpa. The other eight housemates were chosen to be their "servants" and moved to the House Next Door. It was revealed that the masters are automatically nominated for eviction in which the viewers are to vote which housemates to save, rather than evicted. Therefore, the housemate with the least number of votes is evicted. Donny, who was originally a servant, left the house on Day 3. On Day 5, Ken voluntarily left after being involved in arguments with housemates.


Note 2: Carole and Cleo were banned from nominating as a punishment for discussing nominations earlier. Additionally, housemates had to choose one of them to face the public vote.[61] They chose Carole.[62] On Day 10, Leo escaped the house.[35]


Note 3: The nominations were cast on Day 15 and announced on Day 16. The voting package was delayed and only shown at the end of Big Brother's Big Mouth where it was also revealed that all Channel 4's profits for this vote will go to charity.


Note 4: There was a double eviction on Day 24 and therefore the three or more housemates were placed up for the public vote rather than the two or more housemates. The voting lines originally opened on Day 22 but were reset on Day 23 due to an error which stated that viewers were to vote to save Shilpa when they were in fact voting to evict. Viewers who had voted before the lines were reset were offered a full refund with all unclaimed money and profits from the vote being donated to charity[63] Shilpa Shetty (Tulu: ಶಿಲ್ಪ ಶೆಟ್ಟಿ) (born 8 June 1975 in Tamil Nadu, India) is a four-time Filmfare Award-nominated Indian film actress and Supermodel. ...


Note 5: There were no nominations in the final two days and instead the public were voting for the housemate they wished to win rather than evict. The housemates coming 5th and 6th were evicted together in a double eviction on the final night, All 4 other housemates left the house separately.

UK media regulator Ofcom received more than 50,000 complaints[64][65][66] - a record number for a British television programme after transmission. Channel 4 received an additional 3,000 complaints,[67][68] about racism and bullying by housemates against Shetty. The Eastern Eye newspaper launched an online petition that registered over 30,000 signatures.[69] Channel 4 initially described the situation as "girly rivalry" but later admitted there had "undoubtedly been a cultural clash between her and three of the British females in the house".[70] Ofcom is a regulator for communication industries in the United Kingdom. ...

Basis of accusations

The accusations were based on the following actions:

  • Jade Goody's mother, Jackiey Budden, repeatedly referred to Shilpa as "the Indian" or "Princess" while she was on the show because, according to her, she was unable to pronounce Shilpa's name.[71] However, during her eviction interview, Davina coerced Jackiey into saying "Shilpa" and Jackiey pronounced it properly, although a bit agitated.
  • Jack Tweed, Jade's boyfriend, called Shilpa Shetty a "fucking [expletive]", with the bleeped-out expletive variously reported as "cunt"[72] and "Paki".[73]
  • On Days 11 and 12, Danielle Lloyd and Jo O'Meara poked fun at Shilpa's accent.[71] Lloyd has also referred to Shilpa as a "dog".[74]
  • Jo implied that all Indians were thin because they were always ill as a result of undercooking their food because she believed Shilpa undercooked a chicken meal.[71]
  • Referring to Shilpa applying facial hair bleaching cream, Danielle said "she's trying to make her face look white."[71]
  • After an argument between Shilpa and Jade, witnessed by a giggling Jo and Danielle, Danielle said she thought Shilpa should "just fuck off home. She can't even speak English."[75] She also mentioned to Jo that she didn't like Shilpa touching her food because "you don't know where her hands have been". The next morning, Danielle spoke to Shilpa about the situation, but did not apologise. During the conversation in the bedroom, Jade entered, sat in front of Danielle, blocking out Shilpa, and began doing makeup. As Shilpa left, Danielle told Jade that she "tried apologising to her". Later Danielle made an awkward attempt to apologize by saying "I feel really bad, I feel disgusted with myself the way I've treated you and the way I've acted, because I'm not like that, Shilpa, really," ... "And you can even cook me curry and you can pick the onions out with your fingers."[76]
  • Jade referred to Shilpa as, among other things, 'Shilpa Popadom', 'Shilpa Durupa' and 'Shilpa Fuckawala'. She later said she had done this with no intention of racism. Commenting on this in the Diary Room, she apologised if her actions had offended anybody.[77][78]
  • Even after Jade apologised to Shilpa (On day 16), Jack continued to abuse Shilpa. Jack confessed that he was very disappointed with Jade for apologising to Shilpa, and called Shilpa a "dick". He previously described Shilpa as a "wanker".[79]

The three girls under most scrutiny for racist accusations — Goody, Lloyd and O'Meara — repeatedly stated, amongst each other and the other housemates, that they feel Shilpa is a 'fake' and a 'loser'.[80] Jackiey Budden (born April 1958 and also known as Jackiey Luckens and Jackiey Goody) is the mother of reality TV star Jade Goody by Andrew Goody. ...

Reaction

Media reaction

Various media outlets initially characterized the issue as 'girlish rivalry'[81] but later blamed it on bullying and racism. As time progressed, the majority of media coverage on Goody became negative, although accusations of racism were superseded by those of bullying. An editorial published by The Daily Mirror on 18 January 2007 called Beauty V Bigot deplored what they referred to as "disgraceful racist bullying of Big Brother's Shilpa Shetty" and criticised Channel 4 management for maintaining that there wasn't a racial element to the bullying.[82] The British tabloids mostly concentrated on the comments made by Goody, rather than those made by Jack, Danielle and Jo towards Shilpa, as well as the bullying from them. For instance, when Jade and Shilpa were arguing over Oxo cubes, Shilpa pleaded with Jo for assistance by saying “Jo, I mean, are you going to say something here what is happening here?” to which Jo responded by bursting out laughing. Jermaine later said "when all this was going on I saw Danielle and Jo laughing and then branded them as “the allies”." Image File history File links WikiNews-Logo. ...

Political reaction

Leicester East MP Keith Vaz has tabled an Early Day Motion with parliament addressing this issue,[85] while, the then Chancellor of the Exchequer, Gordon Brown has condemned the attacks.[1] Tony Blair refused to comment on the issue as he has not been watching the show, although he did condemn racism in all its forms.

London mayor Ken Livingstone weighed in on the controversy by stating "The racism towards Shilpa Shetty on Celebrity Big Brother is completely unacceptable."

In an interview with Commission for Equality and Human Rights chairman Trevor Phillips, broadcast on BBC One on 21 January, Channel 4 chairman Luke Johnson was held accountable for what Phillips termed as 'failing to deal properly with the crisis'. Phillips has suggested Johnson should "make clear that they got it wrong" and admit that "they intervened too little too late". He also suggested that Channel 4 should not profit from the series, giving all of the money to charity. If this fails to happen it has been suggested, by Phillips, that further action could be taken by the culture secretary and Johnson's job could be under threat.[88] The Commission for Equality and Human Rights is an equality and human rights body in Great Britain - a separate Equality Commission exists for Northern Ireland, established under the terms of the Belfast Agreement. ...

Reaction in India

In response to the alleged racism being directed at actress Shetty in the Big Brother House, protesters took to the streets in India and burned effigies of the show's organisers.

Police investigation

According to the BBC Shetty confided in fellow housemate Cleo Rocos that she feared the arguments between Goody, O'Meara, Lloyd and herself was the result of her race. After being told by Cleo that this was unlikely, Shilpa retorted by saying "It is, I'm telling you". Shilpa did not lodge an official complaint of racist behaviour to Big Brother.[70] Yet Shetty's admission has forced police to investigate whether or not to classify her treatment as 'racial hatred' under Part III of the Public Order Act 1986.

Hertfordshire police said in a statement that it was

"Investigating allegations of racist behaviour in the Big Brother house and will be conducting enquiries, including a review of the tapes. We will continue to liaise with Ofcom and with Endemol, whom we have strongly encouraged to ensure that any form of behaviour that could raise similar concerns, does not occur. We will continue to closely monitor the situation over the next few days. Hertfordshire Constabulary will not tolerate racism in any form and is taking these allegations seriously. The constabulary has experience of investigating and resolving incidents in the Big Brother house in past seasons."[91]

Shetty later withdrew her claims of racism, stating she did not think Jade was being racist during their argument.[92] However, Shetty was unaware of all the alleged insults levelled against her, often done behind her back at that time.


Sponsor and corporate backlash

On 18 January, The Carphone Warehouse suspended its sponsorship of Celebrity Big Brother with immediate effect over the alleged racism. This does not however, entitle the Carphone Warehouse to recoup prepaid sponsorship monies, therefore causing minimal financial damage to Channel 4[92]The company's chief executive, Charles Dunstone, said in a statement: is the 18th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

"Our concern has rapidly mounted about the broadcast behaviour of individuals within the Big Brother house. We are totally against all forms of racism and bullying and indeed this behaviour is entirely at odds with the brand values of the Carphone Warehouse. As a result we feel that as long as this continues we are unable to associate our brand with the programme. We had already made it clear to Channel 4 that were this to continue, we would have to consider our position. Nothing we saw last night gave us any comfort. Accordingly we have instructed Channel 4 to remove our sponsorship name and branding with immediate effect."[93]

Big Brother intervention

A Channel 4 spokeswoman admitted Big Brother had intervened in the latest row - but only to make contestants "realise that what they have said has been misconstrued in the house". The idea, she said, was to allow the housemates "to explain themselves" to their fellow contestants.[100]This was followed by a series of apologies by the housemates to Shilpa and a declaration by her that she did not believe Jade was racist. Also Jade said inside the house before she left: "I know why there's no noise." When Shilpa asked "Why?" Jade replied: "I know, but I can't tell you.[8] In an interview with the Daily Star, Jade admitted that, during her final hours in the Channel 4 house, Big Brother had revealed that her abuse of Shilpa had ruined her own "girl-next-door" image.[101] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


Additional claims

On 1 February, several British media outlets began reporting additional claims that Shilpa had in fact been called a "fucking Paki" by a housemate, although it is unclear whether this is believed to be the aforementioned incident involving Jack. In another instance, Shilpa is reported to have been the subject of a 'limerick', improvised by one of the housemates, which began "there was a young girl from Bombay" and ended "this house was happy, until we got that fucking Paki". These claims allegedly come from an Endemol employee who was interviewed the previous day by Hertfordshire police and who provided them with a hand-written "production running-order", intended for Dermot O'Leary, the back of which details these episodes as well as noting "there ARE dodgy clips, we are fucked". Police were said to have demanded unedited footage of these alleged incidents from Endemol, who confidently denied the claims and refused to hand over any footage.[102][103] The CPS have now decided not to bring criminal charges against anyone nor to pursue unbroadcast footage through the courts.

Shilpa Shetty

On 14 February 2007 Shilpa Shetty said "Jade did apologise. And I've forgiven her. Anyone, who knows me, knows I forgive and forget easily."[110]


On 17 February 2007, Shilpa said that she wanted to forgive Jo O'Meara, but she and other Celebrity Big Brother contestants had difficulty contacting her.[111]


On May 11 2007 Shilpa Shetty released her new Bollywood film, Life in a...Metro. The film had a Leicester Square premier (the first for a Bollywood film). In the UK, Shilpa continues to work on projects, including a west end musical and perfume.


Jo O'Meara

Unlike fellow housemate Jade Goody, Jo O'Meara did not donate her fees for appearing on the show (and for an interview with the Sunday Mirror) to charity, stating that her intention in taking part in the show was to pay off her mortgage debt.[112] Alternate newspaper: The Daily Mirror (Australia) The Daily Mirror is a popular British tabloid daily newspaper. ...


O'Meara has also stated that she never bullied Shilpa Shetty, and that the program showed her as a much different person than in reality and that the producers of the program exploited her. She has claimed that the media frenzy surrounding the racist depiction of the S Club 7 star has left her on the verge of a nervous breakdown. She is in a unstable mental state, and has even considered physically harming herself.


In an interview with Sky News, Jo explained that she has been left feeling paranoid and that she has been prescribed drugs to return her to 'normal'.[113] In an intervew with UK breakfast television show GMTV, O'Meara stated she needed to be in a safe house as she has received death threats. In the interview, she stated how she received very little in the way of support from Big Brother. Sky News is a 24-hour British domestic and international television news channel that started broadcasting on 16 February 1989 as part of the then four-channel Sky Television service. ... GMTV (Good Morning Television) is a national British breakfast television station owned by ITV plc (75%) and The Walt Disney Company (25%).

Ofcom Report

On 24 May 2007, it was reported that TV watchdog Ofcom had adjudicated on the race row during the Celebrity Big Brother series following the record number of complaints. Channel 4 was found to have breached the Ofcom code of conduct. Statutory sanctions were imposed on Channel 4, obliging them to broadcast statements of Ofcom's findings on three separate occasions at the start of the new series of Big Brother in May. It was also reported that footage of an alleged racist limerick about Shilpa, devised by her antagonisers, did exist, despite previous denials by Endemol.[114] However, the report made clear that the phrase "fucking paki" was not used by Jack Tweed as previously believed.[115] A transcript of untransmitted footage was also released where Big Brother clearly warns some housemates that what they were saying could be regarded as racially offensive.[116] Ofcom is a regulator for communication industries in the United Kingdom. ...
