‘Big Brother’ producers have been accused of fixing the series for Danny Wisker to win, after a segment revealing tweets he allegedly posted about “fat birds” was cut from Tuesday’s (14 July) show at the last minute.
A press release sent out by the ‘Big Brother’ team on Tuesday afternoon, which detailed what would be in that night’s highlights show, revealed how Danny was left red-faced after some of his old tweets were read out to the group.
Big Brother's Danny
According to the release, one of the tasks saw Big Brother ask the housemates: “Which Housemate tweeted, ‘Fat birds trying it on with me in clubs. Stick to your own kind’?”
After it was revealed to be Danny, the release stated that he was “surprised” as he “cannot remember tweeting this”.
He later visited the Diary Room to discuss his tweets, saying: “I bloody hated it. I feel really ashamed and so did everyone else in that room. I was shocked and disappointed. I can understand why people would turn against me. I’m so sorry.”
However, all of this footage was missing from the episode when it aired on Channel 5 later that night.

It prompted ‘Big Brother’ fans to accuse producers of favouritism, giving Danny a good edit in the lead up to Thursday’s (16 July) final:
When HuffPost UK contacted a ‘Big Brother’ spokesperson to put viewers’ concerns to them, they simply said: “Various changes can be made to an episode prior to its broadcast and therefore we have no further comment.”
It comes as Danny’s agent has tried to insist that the “fat birds” tweet is fake, and was not posted by the star.
The Mirror reports his agent claims to have downloaded Danny's entire Twitter history and have “solid evidence” that the 'fat birds' tweet is Photoshopped.

However, the Daily Star Online previously obtained screengrabs of the offending tweets from Danny’s account, and when HuffPost UK scrolled through his page, it appeared that all tweets sent before Danny was announced as a ‘BB’ housemate have now been deleted.
