Christopher Biggins' Agent Speaks Out After 'Celebrity Big Brother' Removal

'Biggins is a much loved and wonderful man.'

Christopher Biggins’ agent has spoken out to defend him, following his removal from the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house. 

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”.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: “I have been close friends and worked with Biggins for many years and can confirm that he would never intentionally cause offence.

“If something was said in jest which caused offence then I am certain that was not his intention. Biggins is a much loved and wonderful man.”

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.”

Biggins raised eyebrows among viewers earlier this week, over comments he made about bisexual people during a conversation with fellow housemate Renee Graziano

The events leading up to Biggins’ exit will air on Saturday’s episode of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ at 10.30pm on Channel 5.
