Download Shilpa Shetty WallpapersLabour MP Keith Vaz tabled an early day motion in the House of Commons Tuesday about the allegedly racist comments made about Indian actress Shilpa Shetty by fellow contestants on the reality show 'Big Brother'.

Vaz said members of his Leicester East constituency had contacted him about alleged racism on the Channel 4 show.

Television regulator Ofcom said it had received thousands of complaints about alleged racism against Shetty.

The early day motion (EDM) reads: 'This House views with concern the comments made about Big Brother contestant Shilpa Shetty by other housemates; believes that Big Brother has a role to play in preventing racist behaviour in the Big Brother house; regrets that these comments have been made; and calls on the programme to take urgent action to remind housemates that racist behaviour is unacceptable.'

EDMs are used by MPs to highlight an issue and appear on the Commons Order Paper each day.

Vaz said: 'I have been contacted by constituents who have expressed concern that apparently racist comments in the Big Brother house have passed without any response from the Big Brother programme.

'We would not tolerate this kind of racism on other types of television programme and we should not do so on a programme that is watched by millions of people.'
