Day 45: Over 1000 complaints recorded after Helen’s inappropriate comments

Ofcom have recorded over 1000 complaints following last night’s show.

Last night, Channel 5 broadcast a scene involving Big Brother 15 Housemate, Helen Wood, and Big Brother 8 Winner, Brian Belo, in an argument which ended up with a heated exchange. The scene involved Wood telling Belo that he looked like a rapist and a murderer.

Since the scene was shown on Channel 5, 1,100 complaints have been recorded regarding what Helen said. A spokesperson for Ofcom said “Ofcom has received 1,100 complaints about Big Brother on Channel 5 on June 24th. We will assess these complaints before deciding whether to investigate or not.”

Big Brother did issue Helen with a formal warning over the comments made to Brian, alongside giving Marc a warning also.

Helen is no stranger to complaints as last year, Ofcom received 3,784 complaints over comments made, many of which were to do with Helen.

Big Brother continues tonight at 10pm.
