Ofcom dismisses Celebrity Big Brother complaints about Winston McKenzie

Winston McKenzie Celebrity Big Brother 2016

TV watchdog Ofcom has dismissed hundreds of complaints made over Winston McKenzie's comments on Celebrity Big Brother.

Around 1,000 complaints were lodged within the first few days of this year's series about Winston's 'homophobic' remarks, including his controversial views on gay adoption.

However Ofcom has today said they will not be looking into the complaints any further.

They said in a statement: "We are satisfied that Channel 5 broadcast clear and appropriate warnings about the potentially offensive content, and intervened in heated exchanges and situations at appropriate times.

"We have also taken into account the audience's expectations of this well-established reality format, and that the series is aired after the watershed."

However it's only the first batch of complaints that Ofcom have had time to process from this year's series.

Thousands more are waiting to be assessed including those concerning the reaction of THAT David mix up.

There have also been complaints over evicted Megan's meltdown and more recently more than 150 objections about perceived bullying in the house involving Gemma, Stephanie and Danniella.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
