This year’s ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ went from being a TV show into an international diplomatic incident and sparked a national race debate along the way.

Next Monday night (29th January), in a special ‘Asian Network Report’ to round off the station’s ‘Big Brother’ coverage, the Asian Network is asking whether the race row surrounding the show was hype or hatred. Did the behaviour in the house reveal what really happens in multi-racial Britain?

Presenter Sonia Deol will be hosting a live event at the University of East London to give British Asians the opportunity to air their views along with celebrity guest from the race debate. Just Reality TV or the real Britain? You Decide.

Asian Network Report – Big Brother special on the BBC Asian Network on Monday at 18:00.
