Human rights lawyer added to U.K. 'Celebrity Big Brother' review panel

UPI News Service, 01/23/2007 

The British network that airs "Celebrity Big Brother," on which racist comments were alleged, appointed a human rights lawyer to a panel reviewing the show.

Rabinder Singh will sit as the independent member on a three-member panel Channel 4 named in the wake of the controversy that arose last week when thousands of viewers complained about racist comments directed toward Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, the BBC said Tuesday.

Two housemates subsequently apologized. One, Jade Goody, said on a British talk show that she was living in fear and that her home has been vandalized. Voters evicted her from the show last week.

On Monday, Channel 4 commissioned a panel to review editorial and compliance measures and processes for "Celebrity Big Brother." Serving with Singh are Channel 4 group finance director Anne Bulford and non-executive director Tony Hall, chief executive of the Royal Opera House and a former chief executive of BBC News.

British bookmakers have made Shetty the odds-on favorite to win the show, which ends Sunday.
