Jermaine Jackson says brother Michael needs to become a Muslim
Celebrity Big Brother star Jermaine Jackson hopes to convert brother Michael to Islam.
Jermaine told the BBC Asian Network that his Muslim faith helped him cope with life inside the Big Brother house.
"If I didn't have Allah and my prayer rug, I would not have survived, and the reason why is because it kept me focused, it kept me calm," said the former Jackson Five singer, who now lives in Bahrain.
"Michael, I feel, needs to become a Muslim because I think it's a great protection for him from all the things that he's been attacked with, which are false. There's a strength and a protection there.
"I brought him a lot of books, and he reads everything and he reads a lot.
"I think he's probably given it serious thought because he's spent a lot of time in Bahrain. I was the reason why he had gone there because I wanted him to get out of America and just go somewhere peaceful and quiet, where people pray five times a day. It's a beautiful thing."
Jermaine, who came second in the Channel 4 reality show, also denied branding Jade Goody, Jo O'Meara and Danielle Lloyd "white trash".
He said: "I didn't make that statement. I was repeating something that someone else had said and I was trying to let Shilpa know what some of the housemates felt was the reason why she was attacked. They didn't show who originally said it.
"I was raised no different from Michael and the rest of our family. We don't look down upon people because of their colour or anything. People are people to us. That's how we were raised, and I would never call anybody 'white trash' because it's just not right."
