The public have been barred from tonight’s Celebrity Big Brother eviction, it was announced today.
The move follows fears that Jade Goody could be attacked by a hostile crowd following her alleged racist bullying of Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty.
A spokesman for Applause Store, the company which handles ticket allocation, said: “Due to the controversy and heightened feelings surrounding the evictees, there will be no crowd for tonight’s eviction.”
Hundreds of people who hold tickets for tonight’s show will be invited to attend the next eviction instead.
Talk about feeling cheated!!
I’ve been looking forward to seeing the hateful Jade Goody get booed by the audience all week and now there won’t even be anyone there. I was relishing the moment when the nasty Goody would witness the full fury of the way she has treated Shilpa Shetty and now I’ve been robbed.
Shame on Channel 4 for leading me to believe all week that the payback for her horrendous outbursts, bullying and imo, racist rants would be met by a the fury of an angry crowd with howls of derision and boos on her eviction. It was clear she would go. They showed the nastiness and fueled the media storm by showing the tirades in the house and yet Goody’s much-looked-forward-too comeupance has been stopped.
Utter crap! She deserved it and should get her just rewards, I would say.
