An Episode Of U.k. Reality Tv Show Big Brother Has Drawn More Than 1,000 Complaints From Disgruntled Viewers After A Fight Broke Out Between Two Contestants On Wednesday Night's Episode (24jun15).
Bosses at British regulatory body The Office of Communications (Ofcom) counted 1,100 gripes from viewers after housemate Helen Wood told fellow star Brian Belo, "You look like a rapist, you look like a murderer, murderer slash rapist."
Both Wood and Belo are previous winners of the show, taking the title in 2014 and 2007 respectively, and had re-entered the 2015 house as a new twist in the game.
Wood's outburst, which aired on Britain's Channel 5 network on Wednesday, prompted a slew of complaints to Ofcom which are now under assessment.
An Ofcom spokesman tells WENN, "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."
Ofcom officials report that last year (14) there were a total of 3,784 complaints made about the reality show.
