Spencer & Heidi land one-off TV special
The former Celebrity Big Brother housemates, who finished in second place in last month’s series, will appear in one-hour special The Speidi Story.
The documentary will chart Speidi’s success in US reality show The Hills, as well as their controversial appearance in the Big Brother house.
A spokesperson for the show told Virgin Media: ”Speidi have gone from being America’s most loathed couple to a new UK phenomenon, thanks to Celeb Big Brother. This is their story.”
Heidi and Spencer’s behaviour may become the topic of an investigation by broadcast watchdog Ofcom.
At least 35 viewers complained to Ofcom, arguing that Heidi and Spencer’s behaviour on CBB amounted to bullying.
However, the couple mocked Ofcom’s investigation and wrote in an open letter to the Daily Star: “Villains are essential to our culture, both our art and our real lives. We don’t condone violence and we don’t condone bullying. We do, however, get paid to be on television.”
“Television that would be much less watchable if there were no conflict. So please, in the nicest, most properly British way possible, put on your big girl knickers and stop whining.”
The Speidi Story will air later this month on Channel 5.
