DEFRA secretary David Miliband has had his say on the row over Celebrity Big Brother which is dominating the headlines both in the UK and in India.

Over 30,000 people have complained about the show because they believe that one of the contestants Jade Goody has been racist towards Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty.

A posting on Mr Miliband’s blog says that Shilpa is the subject that everyone else seems to be talking about.

He wrote: “OK, so I don’t watch Big Brother, but we are all entitled to an opinion.  Shilpa in, Jade out.”
