Chad Johnson’s On-Air Sex Act on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ Being Investigated
Chad Johnson does not know how to avoid controversy when it comes to reality TV!
Still, he’s been able to stir up plenty of headlines overseas during his three weeks on Celebrity Big Brother UK — and now, his on-air sex act is being investigated!
Chad started off on the wrong foot with CBB viewers when, upon arrival in the house, his overly cocky behavior had fans calling for his eviction on Twitter.
“Maybe they like the other dudes but all I know is right now if you asked who has a better chance of getting a girl on a date it's me over everybody,” he famously said about his ability to woo his many female castmates.
Instead, Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding is who he most connected with, leading the two into a rollercoaster romance, despite her having a boyfriend back home.
The 35-year-old pop star declared early on that she’d “never have sex” on the show, which is now coming back to bite her — in more ways than one.
When she and the 30-year-old hunk first exchanged a kiss, the housemates grilled her on whether they’d gone further behind closed doors.
“I'm not going to do anything like that in the house... I've just got to maintain some decorum while I'm in the house,” she said at the time.
Instead, she turned around and did just that when she took her relationship with the fitness buff to the next level — and all on camera.
The moment everyone is talking about now happened after Chad asked a towel-clad Sarah to join him in a “Netflix and chill” session.
That turned into the two getting into bed together, and plenty of, ahem, heavy petting.
The fitness buff alluded to his fling that he was having a hard time not going further with her as they shared a bed. That seemed to be an invitation for the two to progress to the next level.
“Can you feel that there?” the songstress was heard asking, as the camera panned to her hand over his underwear and on his crotch.
The scene is then cut, though a show insider told The Sun that Sarah's hand then “disappeared under the covers and Chad's boxers came off.”
“Viewers can draw their own conclusions about what happens — but it's pretty clear,” they claimed.
That moment spurred many viewers to lash out on Twitter. Some were scolding her for not being faithful to her boyfriend, while others accused her of “playing it up for the cameras.”
One fan tweeted, “So Sarah and Chad pull the blanket over their heads to kiss but it's suddenly moved so you can see her feel him up? Convenient.”
Some of the viewers must have taken their complaints from social media to the network, as Ofcom — the British communications regulator, similar to the FCC in the U.S. — is now considering their best course of action.
“We will assess these complaints before deciding whether or not to investigate,” Ofcom’s rep tells Daily Mail.
Stay tuned, folks. We’re guessing there’s more to come from this tangled love story.
Celebrity Big Brother airs on Channel 5 in the UK.
