Grief expert slams Big Brother
‘An expert on grief and bereavement has said Big Brother housemate Emma should be informed of her father’s death, despite the deceased’s request not to tell her.
Her father Raymond Cornell, 53, died of cancer in Adelaide, and his funeral was held on Monday.
Emma’s boyfriend Tim Stanton told News Limited that Mr Cornell had asked that his daughter not be told of his death until she left the house.
Director of the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement, psychologist Chris Hall, this morning said Emma should be given the information about the death of her father, so she can make her own choice about the best way to deal with it.’
