Brazilian Big Brother scandal
Brazilian police confirmed that they have started an investigation and carried out a search of the studios in Rio de Janerio.
Their actions come after footage appeared to show 31-year-old housemate Daniel Echaniz force himself upon student Monique Amin, 23, who had reportedly passed out following a party.
Echaniz, a male model, was seen entering the bed of Ms Amin before appearing to have sex with her under the covers as she seemingly remained unconscious. The incident was captured on the night vision cameras used in the series.
When Ms Amin was questioned about it in the diary room the next day she appeared to know little of what had happened.
