The newspaper made no attempt to contact me, but appears to have relied solely on reports in the Jewish media. Big mistake.

David Irving comments:

A LETTER before Action has now been sent to The Observer for once again stating that I am an active Holocaust denier. If these journalists keep swimming in their own lies, they may eventually drown in them. High Court action will follow if the warning is ignored. I have warned this newspaper and its sister The Guardian about this lie on several previous occasions.

Incidentally, the newspaper made no attempt to contact me, but appears to have relied solely on reports in the Jewish media, The Jewish Chronicle and Ha'aretz. Big mistake.

Protests at Irving's audition for Celebrity Big Brother

by Rajeev Syal

DAVID Irving, the disgraced historian and Holocaust denier, was considered as a contestant for the reality television show Celebrity Big Brother, prompting astonishment and anger from Jewish campaigners.

The 70-year-old author, described by a High Court judge as 'anti-semitic and racist', had a 90-minute meeting with the production company Endemol and discussed taking part in the next series in January.

The disclosure follows a week of intense debate over the ethics of entertainment following lewd and insulting comments made by Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand on Radio 2. Endemol was severely rebuked by the media regulator Ofcom last year for allowing former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Shilpa Shetty to become the target of sustained racial abuse.

Irving announced on his website that he had received a 'top secret provisional invitation' in September. He was told last week that he had not made the final selection.

Leading historians and Jewish figures were incredulous yesterday at Endemol's apparent invitation. Deborah Lipstadt, the American historian who defeated a High Court libel case brought by Irving, wrote on her blog: 'This is beyond belief.'

Mark Gardner, a director at the Community Security Trust, the Jewish anti-racism body, said: 'It is pathetic in the extreme that a Holocaust denier should even be considered as light entertainment for a reality TV show.'

A spokesman for Endemol said that Irving had not been 'seriously considered' as a contestant.
