Ken Morley Branded 'Disgusting Racist' By 'Celebrity Big Brother' Housemate Alexander O'Neal's Wife, Over Offensive Comments

UPDATE: Ken Morley Has Now Been Removed From The 'CBB' House

Alexander O’Neal’s wife has hit out at his ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ housemate Ken Morley, branding him “disgusting” and “racist”.


The former ‘Coronation Street’ actor was at the centre of a race controversy this weekend, after viewers saw him using offensive language about people of African descent, which Alexander warned him was not acceptable.

However, while he was warned that continued unacceptable behaviour could lead to his ejection from the house, on Sunday night viewers saw him complaining that he was fed up of “political correctness”, which he said had gone too far.

He is one of three housemates potentially leaving the house in the first eviction of the series on Tuesday night, after being nominated by his fellow housemates.

Chloe Goodman also faces the boot, alongside soul singer Alexander, having both been picked by Katie Hopkins on the first night of the series.
