Dutch Big Brother mum quits show

Suffers attack of good sense

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

The woman who gave birth in the Dutch Big Brother house has walked out of the show after branding housemates "childish, talkative and manipulative", the BBC reports. "I want to enjoy maternity, not feel annoyance," Tanja told Dutch paper De Telegraaf, admitting: "I'll be happy when I am amongst normal people again."

The catalyst for the shock exit of Tanja and baby Joscelyn Savanna was apparently housemates' taunts about smoking and their jibes that "she had smoked so much during her pregnancy that the baby would end up breast-feeding on tar". Surprisingly, no-one seems to have questioned her judgement regarding dropping a sprog in a house packed to the rafters with halfwits purely for the benefit of a television audience and in the offchance that she might pocket the €400,000 prize for being the last person aboard this ship of fools.

Tanja gave birth on 18 October under strict conditions imposed by the Dutch Social Affairs Ministry which would not allow the spectacle to be broadcast live by Talpa TV. The editor of Big Brother admitted it was shame Tanja had made good her escape because the whole sorry affair had been "good television". ®
