Friday 19 January
And then they made up. Celebrity Big Brother
contestants Jade Goody and Shilpa Shetty speak to the camera in
the diary room in the Big Brother house at Elstree Television Studios London. It was Goodbye Goody time as the week
long furore over 'racial abuse' came to an end with Goody's eviction by a overwhelming popular vote and with Shilpa
withdrawing the charge which had exercised such politically correct figures as the minister for censorship, Priyaranjan
Dasmunshi and the Prime Minister Tony Blair, Prime Minster-in- waiting Gordon Brown, Labour MP Kiteh Vaz, the
government of India, and everybody's dog. While the controversy undoubtedly helped the TV show, Indian Tourism
office in London was not to be left behind and did its own bit by issuing a full-page advertisement in London newspapers
Dear Jane Goody,
Once your current commitments are over, may we invite you to experience the healing nature of India. We have a
modern thriving culture and offer an amazing wealth of sights and sounds, tastes and textures making our country a
place like no other.
Goody's commitments with CBB are definitely over, but we are not sure if she would accept the invite.
