Shilpa Braced For Question Time Appearance

by | 09 February 2007

Celebrity Big Brother winner Shilpa Shetty is to consolidate her positions as the country's political sweetheart by appearing on BBC1's Question Time.

The multi-lingual Bollywood actress has been invited to take her place on the topical discussion show's panel later this month, the Daily Mirror claims.

During her time in the Big Brother house last month, the 31-year-old was subject to alleged racist bullying by ex-BB contestant Jade Goody, former S-Club 7 singer Jo O'Meara and model Danielle Lloyd.

But her dignified response to the taunting has seen her UK profile boosted immeasurably, earlier this week being fawned over by MPs and the prime minister Tony Blair himself during a visit to Westminster.

Shilpa has also been offered the chance to join the anti-bullying charity that shed Goody at the height of the Channel 4 show racism row.

And next up on her social calendar is an audience with the Queen after being invited to attend a Commonwealth Day reception on March 12th.
