Former Big Brother winner PETE BENNETT has hit out at the show which made him a household name, calling it "boring".

In an interview with the Daily Star, Pete stated that the show has dropped in quality since his own series and admitted to not watching the current series of BIG BROTHER: CELEBRITY HIJACK.

"BB7 was wicked but they followed it with the celeb series with Jade Goody. I didn't like it because of the racism towards Shilpa Shetty," said the former housemate.

"I expected change to come with BB8 but it didn't happen. It didn't make me go 'wow' and there was another racist comment. I was a bit upset by the whole thing and it has put me off BB altogether," he continued.

Meanwhile, the current housemates could be in for a musical treat today as they are hijacked by recently-reunited All Saints members Melanie Blatt and Nicole Appleton.

The contestants were woken this morning by the band's hit single PURE SHORES.
