I don’t watch Celebrity Big Brother, so there’s little I can usefully add — not that I usually let that stop me, of course — to the thoughtful discussions from Bel, Ellee, Morag, Matt and the comments in Pickled Poltics (not all of which are wholly thoughtful of course, but none the worse for that) not to mention the endless newspaper coverage. No time to watch the TV, you see, with all this reading to do.
Consequently, apart from noting that, in their different ways, both Sunny and Mr Eugenides get, as so often they do, close to the heart of the matter, all I can do is speculate about the coverage in, for example, the Daily Express — presently of the view that ‘a reality TV show has shamed our country in the eyes of the world’, apparently — had Ms Shetty’s religion been different and we’d been treated to the spectacle of Jade and chums bullying her for being a Muslim. I think we’d than have seen a few interesting contortions.
UPDATE — in fact, while I don’t know how good the young lady’s English is, I think I may have found an ideal foreign, Muslim celebrity for the programme’s next series.
