Over 1,500 people have signed a petition that started off in the city of Bradford, calling on Channel 5 not to allow wannabe celebrity Josie Cunningham on Big Brother.

The petition comes on the back of controversial statements the call girl and model made saying she would have an abortion to improve her chances of getting on the reality show.

Her confession was made to the Sunday Mirror, as she said the chance of appearing on the well-known TV programme was worth more than her unborn child’s life.

The 23-year-old – who is 18 weeks pregnant – said: “I’m finally on the verge of becoming famous and I’m not going to ruin it now.

“An abortion will further my career. This time next year I won’t have a baby. Instead, I’ll be famous, driving a bright pink Range Rover and buying a big house. Nothing will get in my way.”

Started by a man from Bradford, the petition says of Josie: ‘Despite having 2 other children Josie is having an abortion so she can continue on her path of been famous and her career is more important than the life of her unborn baby.

‘She has caused outrage by getting a boob op on the NHS and has had surgery to straighten a tooth also on the NHS because she is pregnant. She only got the tooth straightened to help her career and this needs to be stopped.’

One of the signatories wrote: ‘To kill a life for one’s selfishness should never be considered for any reality show and channel 5 would lose viewers as people don’t want selfish idiots like her.’

Various celebrities have voiced their disgust at the comments made by Josie, including The Only Way Is Essex star Mario Flacone.

  5. Archibald Khallos says:

    To deny the life of a unborn CHILD for fame is completely outrageous. Also, her becoming famous will have serious repercussions because in today’s day and age, I guarantee her children will have to go through a hard time. Do not let that woman get on Big Brother. Instead, lock her up, make the world forget about her, find the children a caring family and just hope they have a good life.
