Disaster. Lovely.

The latest race row on Big Brother was so disgusting that an extra million people tuned in to be appalled as Bob Geldof’s lost daughter called another attention-seeking brain donor a taboo word.
This from the same channel that just knew that there’d be an audience for a programme with macabre Diana-death pics.
Quote of the day comes from Lord Puttnam, deputy chairman of Channel 4:
"I am not proud of the Big Brother row - I am not even proud of Big Brother. But Big Brother accounts for 15% of the total revenue that keeps Channel 4 afloat."
