The roller-coaster of Celebrity Big Brother is over. What a year to choose to watch it for the first time! Someone has suggested that it is a deeply theological programme, challenging us to ask questions of how we view God. The contestants who were first and second, reminded us of the importance of peace, patience, compassion, kindness and above all…..forgiveness. A true message of hope.

I am delighted that Shilpa Shetty was the winner, and I applaud her sentiments about forgiving the bullying and so forth. She is a Hindu and her religion is based on kindness and forgiveness. Jermaine Jackson, the runner-up is a Muslim and he too exhibited compassion, calmness and dignity. What better lessons could there be?
