Big Brother 2012: Conor row prompts 1,000 complaints but Deana sparks new outrage over sex swap ‘prank’
The first series of ‘regular’ Big Brother on Channel 5 has certainly provided a good deal of drama, even just three weeks in, and as fans of the show will know, the latest controversy has surrounded a rant by Conor McIntyre about fellow housemate Deana Uppal.
However, it’s been reported today that around 1,000 viewers have complained to Ofcom about Conor’s now infamous words, but Channel 5 insist that the issue has been dealt with and no further action will be taken.
A C5 spokesman told the Sun, “He [Conor] was immediately called into the diary room, warned and reprimanded.
“He has fully acknowledged that this was unacceptable behaviour. We are satisfied that he should continue to participate…”
And of course, for Luke A, who was born female, ‘jokes’ of that nature are not overly amusing, and he was furious with Deana.
The saga began when Deana told Becky, “I used to be a man. I thought you knew.
“Thought you’d read up on me. I don’t want to make you uncomfortable, I thought you knew.”
Becky immediately ran into the bedroom and said, “Deana just told me she’s a full-on man.
“She has had surgery and everything.”
Luke A angrily confronted Deana, saying, “Why are you f***ing joking about something like that? It’s not funny.
“Don’t you think it’s a little bit insensitive? You could have picked anything but that. I find it hard.
“It’s not funny to me, it’s really close to home for me.”
Deana immediately replied, “Oh no! Please don’t be offended. Please don’t be insulted. It was just a prank.”
Apparently, Big Brother was “monitoring the explosive situation” overnight.
