1,000 viewers say 'BB' ejection was wrong
Nearly 1,000 Big Brother fans have contacted Channel 4 to complain about its ejection of Emily Parr from the reality show.

The broadcaster said 922 phone calls and emails had been received by 2pm today saying that she should have remained on the show. An additional 68 viewers had praised Channel 4 over its handling of the affair.

Some viewers have apparently registered concerns with the broadcaster that Parr is being used as a scapegoat as Channel 4 seeks to be seen to coming down hard on such behaviour, and are concerned the matter will brand her "something that she may well not be."

Despite 270 people having now complained to Ofcom about the channel's decision to broadcast the word "nigger" uncensored, the channel has received no complaints about this directly.

Channel 4 has cancelled tonight's eviction vote which was due to feature Parr and Shabnam Paryani.
