The former ‘Coronation Street’ star has offended his fellow housemates on numerous occasions, and one exchange screened on Saturday, saw him make remarks about people of African heritage during a conversation with Alexander O’Neal.
A statement from ‘CBB’ bosses reads: “Ken Morley has been removed from the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house for using unacceptable and offensive language following his formal warning.
“Tuesday’s eviction is now cancelled and lines are now closed. Anyone who has already voted will be able to apply for a full refund and details will be available on the Big Brother website within 24 hours."
Ken’s comments towards the female housemates have previously been called into question a number of times, and his response to the incident between Jeremy Jackson and Chloe Goodman also shocked viewers and housemates alike.
Shortly after Jeremy “opened” Chloe’s dressing gown, a move which saw him removed from the house, Ken told her: “Jeremy’s a big film producer, don’t mess yourself up”.
Ken was given a warning for using “offensive language” during Saturday night’s show.
Ken’s exit is expected to be aired during tonight’s (12 January) show.
