Big Brother 2016 has found itself in controversy over housemate Andrew Tate.

The 29-year-old kickboxer claims to be a member of Mensa and reckons he's the most intelligent in this year's series.

However he wasn't smart enough to clean up his Twitter feed before entering the house it seems.

A string of messages dating from as bar back as 2011 have been revealed, apparently posted by his account,

The offensive messages take aim at people's sexuality, disability and race but in one message the Twitter account insists they're not racist.

"im not racist i hate white people and black people the same [sic]." the user wrote in 2012.

However that was posted along a message reading: "F*** the running final if I wanted to see black people running id just threaten them with jobs." (via Daily Star)

The comments could see Andrew follow former Celebrity Big Brother housemate Tila Tequila out of the house.

She was ejected by show bosses last year after comments previously made about Hitler came to light.

"Big Brother does not condone any kind of racist or homophobic behaviour in the House," a Channel 5 spokesperson said.

"If offensive comments of that sort are made in the house, Big Brother will deal with them appropriately, in accordance with its long-standing protocols."

Last night's first BBUK highlights show saw Andrew branded "sly" by those living in the other house with him.

Natalie told Big Brother in the Diary Room that she did not trust him after he gave her a funny look. “I need to get into the main house so I can be myself, cause drama and be happy!” she said.

Later, Andrew went to The Other diary room and told Big brother, “I don’t have a game plan. I’ve decided to stay quiet and learn about my housemates. I don’t care if no one likes me.

"I know I am the most intelligent person in this house. Fact. I want to get in the main house.”

Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5 at 10PM.
