Well they took some heavy criticism for the 'Evil Big Brother' causing the big punch up last week, now a French company is taking legal action against them claiming 15 chickens died on their latest reality show 'Celebrity Farm'.

In the show 14 B list celebrities are put on a farm for 70 days without electricity or running water and have to fend for themselves.

A grey cock was crushed to death by a carelessly thrown bale of straw and a hen slipped when having to go onto the set on an escalator, it added.

I'm not sure what the problem is with a hen slipping on an escalator, but I bet some people get upset with a chicken being crushed live on TV by a badly aimed hey bale :roll: Of course they probably don't mind tucking into a nice bit of chicken for dinner I expect.
