It seems finger-pointing, flared tempers and non-stop shouting makes for good TV – at least, according to Channel 5.
Following the show's higher-than-average ratings of 2.13 million, Channel 5 has confirmed it will broadcast The Big British Immigration Row, a two-hour show involving politicians, immigrants, 'opinion-formers' and the usual loud-mouth pundits.
Ben Frow, director of programming at Channel 5, said: "The success of The Big Benefits Row shows how much people want to talk about these issues and hear a range of views.
"This is a subject that attracts enormous controversy and with The Big British Immigration Row, Channel 5 is taking the lead on topics that our viewers really care about."
Monday's programme saw media commentator Hopkins ask "White Dee" from the controversial Channel 4 documentary Benefits Street whether she considered herself the "patron saint of druggies and dropouts".
Ex-Tory MP Edwina Currie angered poverty campaigner Jack Monroe by insulting her family when the issue of food banks was raised and ex-benefits claimant Annabel Giles was labelled "someone who wanted to be a model but didn’t make it", predictably by Hopkins.
Guests for the next instalment have yet to be confirmed.
