Celebrity Big Brother Hate Couple Speidi Land Own TV Show

Channel 5 will broadcast special on the pair

By On

They became arguably the most hated couple in Big Brother history, but predictably that hasn't stopped Speidi (or Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag as they were once known) from landing their own TV show.

The couple finished second in this year's CBB final, just behind The X-Factor's Rylan Clark, despite provoking a storm of criticism for their antics from the public.

The Speidi Story, which will show the couple's journey from US reality show The Hills to Big Brother, will be a one -off special on Channel 5.

According to Virgin Media, a spokesman for the show said: "Speidi have gone from being America's most loathed couple to a new UK phenomenon, thanks to Celeb Big Brother. This is their story.''

Revelling in their controversial status, 15 security guards were reportedly needed to protect the couple when they arranged a meet and greet with fans yesterday.

The couple also recently defended their villainous characters in an open letter in The Daily Star: "What would 'Star Wars' be if there were no Empire to defeat? Villains are essential to our culture, both our art and our real lives. We don't condone violence and we don't condone bullying. We do, however, get paid to be on television."

All that seems to neglect the fact that 'Star Wars' is fictional, and that we wouldn't celebrate Darth Vader for blowing up planets, even on reality TV as "part of our culture", but it seems that their behaviour has got its reward, as far from cowering from the brickbats of the enranged public they've got their show, which may well have been the plan all along.
