Christopher Biggins has been removed from the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house after he made “a number of comments capable of causing great offence to housemates and the viewing public”.

It is currently unclear exactly what the star said to prompt bosses to remove him, but the events leading up to his exit will air on Saturday (6 August).

A spokesperson for the show said: “Big Brother has taken the decision to remove Christopher Biggins from the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house. 

“Since entering ‘Big Brother’, he has made a number of comments capable of causing great offence to housemates and the viewing public.

“Big Brother does not tolerate offensive language capable of causing widespread offence. Christopher Biggins has left the house.”

On Monday the 67-year-old raised eyebrows among viewers, over comments he made about bisexual people during a conversation with fellow housemate Renee Graziano (watch in the video below).

Biggins was first heard quizzing Renee about her feelings towards gay people, with the ‘Mob Wives’ cast member explaining: “It’s beautiful… it’s who you are and I think it’s natural, but I think today in society, I think they kind of force things on people and confuse you.”

In response, Biggins lamented: “I think the worst type though, I’m afraid to say, is the bisexuals.”

As Renee admitted bisexuality “upsets” her, Biggins continued: “What it is, is people not wanting to admit they’re gay… be honest, that’s what you’ve got to be.”

Renee summed up the conversation by adding: “You can pick any one you want! But you have to pick a team.”

‘Celebrity Big Brother’ airs nightly at 9pm on Channel 5.
