Celebrity Big Brother's Rodrigo Alves Responds To Dan Osborne's Claims About His Removal

His exit was said to have come after an 'inappropriate' incident.

Former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ housemate Rodrigo Alves has said he “can’t deal” with Dan Osborne’s claims he was removed from the house after behaving “inappropriately” towards him. 

The TV personality, often referred to in the media as the “Human Ken doll”, was thrown off the Channel 5 show under mysterious circumstances last month, with producers choosing not to air the events that led to his exit.

However, in an interview earlier this week, Dan told The Sun it came after an “inappropriate” incident that left him feeling “uncomfortable”, but refused to explain further.

Responding to his former housemate’s comments, Rodrigo told The Sun: “I need to concentrate on my new TV show here in Italy therefore I can’t deal with the current story.

“I have many plans at the moment which is to publish my book and my own fashion line.

“I would like to get away from TV reality shows and concentrate in making movies and on my TV presenting skills.”

A ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ spokesperson declined to comment on the matter when contacted by HuffPost UK.

Prior to his removal, Rodrigo was issued with a “formal and final warning” from ‘CBB’ bosses on his first night in the house, when he dropped the n-word twice during a conversation with his housemates.

Since exiting the house, Rodrigo has apologised for his use of the racial slur in the house, claiming that due to his heritage and the fact he isn’t a native English speaker, he was unaware of the term’s offensive history.

Rodrigo was not present at this year’s ‘CBB’ final, in which Ryan Thomas was crowned winner, and neither was controversial housemate Roxanne Pallett.
