UK's Big Brother Producers Want Porn
by: Company Press Release
(LONDON, ENGLAND) -- A former UK porn star quit Big Brother auditions, branding producers as being "too sex mad".
Louise Harvey left the audition for the Channel 4 show, saying there was too much pressure on contestants to have sex.
She said: "The producers are desperate for contestants to bonk. When they found out my past, sex was all they could talk about."
The 38-year-old added: "They asked how many people we'd slept with in the last year and if we'd have sex on TV.
"There were two gay guys, a soldier and three girls in my group. The guys said they would have sex, but us girls said no."
She was invited back a week later and asked to complete a questionnaire giving personal details, including sex habits, reports the Sun.
"After I told them that I used to work in adult movies, all the producers rushed over to talk to me. They wanted to know whether I enjoyed making them.
"I told them it was all in my past. When they asked me if I'd do it again, I said I'd think about it. But I didn't want to be railroaded into having sex. So I said, 'if this is going to be a porn film, I don't want to be in it'. It was left at that."
