UK Big Brother producers accused of using editing to keep house mate around.
More controversy for the UK’s Big Brother 3: The Sun quotes an insider who says there “was a deliberate move to keep Jade in the house, because she stirs things up–and to avoid criticism they have turned Jade into a monster.” Both Jade and Adele were nominated for eviction, and Adele was evicted. The paper reports that “[p]roducers were ordered to tone down their coverage of her antics amid fears she may crack up or try to sue when she leaves the show and learns how viewers see her.” Channel Four told Reuters the accusations were “complete nonsense” and said “[t]here is no editorial agenda.”
