Christopher Biggins has revealed he plans to visit two Nazi concentration camps, after his removal from the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house for making an anti-Semitic joke. 

The entertainer, who was kicked off the Channel 5 reality series on Friday (5 August), will make a pilgrimage to the Plaszo Nazi German labour and concentration camp in Krakow, Poland, as well as nearby Auschwitz, where over one million Jewish people were killed during World War Two.

Biggins made an anti-Semitic joke to Jewish housemate Katie Waissel

Biggins previously claimed he was “mortified” be removed from ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, as he apologised for his comments in his first interview since leaving the house. 

He also made a series of problematic comments about bisexual people, branding them “the worst type” and claiming they were responsible for the spread of AIDs, but later said he stood by them. 

The mother of former ‘X Factor’ star Katie Waissel has now claimed that Biggins should be quizzed by police over his anti-Semitic joke. 

She told The Mirror: “If his comments are as bad as we’re led to believe, they constitute a hate crime – police should be called in to investigate.

“Our whole family have a proud Jewish heritage and are absolutely disgusted by Biggins. But he’s not just hurt my daughter. It sounds like he’s said things offensive to most Jews.”

‘Celebrity Big Brother’ airs nightly on Channel 5.
