I just want to know when the two guys are going to be charged with sexual assault. Instead of being very hush hush about it, Big Brother should have sent the police in the contestants' direction, no if buts or maybe, issued a statement that supported Camilla and so on.

You know, do the right thing - not the Wall of Doom they have at the moment, with the PR crafted exit statement and the closing down of the forums. The information is out there, guys, just deal with it.

I hope Camilla wins the competition this year. God knows she's been through enough petty bullying and other crapola by those vapid models and footyplayer types that are in the house. UGH. Worst year ever for BB in terms of contestants.

Update: Behind Big Brother are reporting that the show will be removed from air immediately, with the money being split between the remaining contestants! No eviction tonight, being replaced by a couple of other shows.

It's still almost impossible to find any real news about this. There's a very coy article on the SMH web site which doesn't mention the axing at all.

I never thought it was possible to feel this relieved and disgusted simultaneously. If BB drop the ball in any way handling this (which they appear to have done several times already) they deserve to have their arses kicked from here to Mars and back. I don't think the Queensland DPP is going to allow them much mercy here either. I do hope they offered the girl some counselling; the prospects for legal action are positively dizzying.

We Shall See.

There are begining to be a few articles floating about here and there. The Herald Sun is interestingly worded, with nothing definite actually being said.

I'm particularly disgusted with the reaction both the production company and Channel 10. They could be handling this so much better than they are. Having this assault on television is not good. The could be supporting Camilla, and I hope to $DEITY that they're doing something in terms of counselling and support for her.

Also on the particularly disgusted list is some of the fans of Big Brother who are suggesting that the show shouldn't be taken off the air, because that would just make more people upset. !!! I'm flabbergasted. Have some respect people.

My favourite theory as to why Big Brother has been pulled is due to loss of corporate sponsorship as a result of the assault. If that's the case, I'm pleased.

IMHO, that's wonderful news... but unfortunately, I can't find it confirmed on the web anywhere. Every story I've found says the show will go ahead.

Yeah, we shall have to wait and see how the story develops during the day.

According to the website, the show is going to continue now. However, it also has mentioned that police are investigating the incident, so at least that's something. I guess, like always, the show must go on.
