LONDON, England (CNN) -- Channel 4 attempted to cool an escalating row over alleged bullying of Indian Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty on "Celebrity Big Brother," saying there was no clear evidence of racism.

But there is one upside to this stupid row: Who would have thought we would ever see the names of famed avant garde movie director Ken Russell, third most-talented Jackson Family member Jermaine Jackson, Caucasian-Afroed 70s music star Leo Sayer and aging A-Teamer Dirk Benedict in the same news story?!?
