Alex Reid, a former Big Brother contestant and Katie Price’s ex-husband, has claimed that the show broadcast his private parts in 2010.
Speaking to the Daily Star, he said that while he was not shy, being filmed 24 hours a day made things “a bit mad.”
He added that fans had sent him footage of his genitals that had been uploaded to gay websites.
Despite this, he was not too bothered as he thought he looked good.
Peaceful in the chaos
Alex entered the Big Brother house in 2010 with Katie Price, his partner at the time.
The couple had started dating only nine months after her divorce from Peter Andre.
Alex won the series.
He told the Daily Star that despite the intense environment of the reality show, it felt peaceful to him due to the chaos in his life outside.
He explained that his world was upside down because of the shenanigans with his ex-partner, whom he did not name.
He could not walk down the street without someone trying to take a picture of him.
Therefore, it was peaceful not to have a mobile phone and not know what was happening in the outside world.
Alex Reid’s claim that Big Brother broadcast his privates during the show’s filming is a significant allegation.
If true, it raises questions about the show’s duty of care towards its participants, particularly in situations where the cameras are filming 24 hours a day.
Alex’s comments also highlight the darker side of fame and the impact it can have on someone’s life.
Despite being in front of all the cameras, Alex found the Big Brother house to be the most peaceful place at that time. His comments illustrate how overwhelming and chaotic life in the public eye can be.
