viewers call police and feed goes black after UK Big Brother house erupts in fights.
Drama and violence erupted in the UK Big Brother 5 house last night. The feeds cut off, security guards were sent in, and viewers called police. Fake evictees Michelle and Emma returned, and soon thereafter, Emma and Victor started fighting; he poured wine on her and her and she screamed, “”I’ll fucking kill you.” Later, “Jason threatened to rip Marco’s head off, while Vanessa had a furious bust-up with Nadia,” Ananova reports. According to the BBC, no one has been expelled yet, but a Channel 4 spokesperson says, “At the end of the day, it is the health and welfare of the housemates that we are concerned about–the game show element is secondary. We want to talk to them individually and see how they are all feeling today. Then we will take a view on what to do next.”
