It was confirmed the star had been ejected from the current series of the Channel 5 reality show on Friday (5 August), for making “a number of comments capable of causing great offence to housemates and the viewing public”.
Biggins’ agent, Jonathan Shalit, has now insisted he would “never intentionally cause offence”.
It is currently unclear exactly what Biggins said to prompt bosses to remove him, although reports have suggested he made a joke about Nazi concentration camps, which caused Jewish housemate Katie Waissel to cry.
A spokesperson for the show said in a statement: “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.”
The events leading up to Biggins’ exit will air on Saturday’s episode of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ at 10.30pm on Channel 5.
