Asian disgusted by TV racism

Tyneside auditions for the next series of controversial Channel 4 reality show Big Brother were plunged into yet more controversy as police were called to deal with alleged racism.

Several thousand more applicants turned up than were expected and bosses at St James' Park were forced to turn many away, sparking scenes of fury.

A producer for the show addressed the crowd by loudspeaker and allegedly told them to "go home." The crowd, including several hundred Asians, went berserk and police received over 700 complaints of racism.

Manjoot Mumbana 33 from Sunderland was one of those in the crowd, she said: "This is just like the treatment Shilpa Shetty received.

"How dare they tell me to go home, I am Indian."

A spokesman for the show told the Spoof that the remark was "not intended to be racist" and he apologised for "any offence caused."
