Is it because I is a bloke?

It's traditional that in the few days following the announcement of a "Big Brother" winner their face looks out from the covers of all the celebrity magazines. It will be interesting to see if the same thing happens with Brian Belo.

  1. If you mean 'Brian' versus 'the Twins' then it should be easy enough to do a little survey of front covers, page 3s etc.
    Or perhaps you see another contender in the field - the Davina herself for instance?

  2. I'm sure there will be very little editorial hand-wringing going on. Big pic of the twins, or the one that likes Posh Spice, and a small inset of Brian.

    Even with the more high-brow titles that I've worked on the old rule still applied. Put a coloured face on the cover and sales fall.

  3. Sorry five-centres, but I really have no idea what the best word to use is. Is coloured more or less offensive than Black? British of African descent?

    It is more offensive.

    Unless you are living in the 1950s, when it is standard terminology.

  5. Apologies for any offense caused.

  6. I believe that any word is exactly as offensive as it's meant to be.
