2,000 complain over Big Brother

British Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom has said it will not investigate Big Brother despite more than 2,000 complaints about the "bullying" behaviour of former winner Helen Wood.

The celebrity, who won last year's show and was a guest star in this series, caused controversy when she described another former winner, Brian Belo, as "looking like a murderer and rapist". Belo, who won the 2007 series, quit the show following the row.

Ofcom said it received 2,024 complaints about the "offensive" language used in the Channel 5 show.
