Big Brother 2016: Is this why Andrew Tate was ejected?!

Big Brother 2016

Andrew Tate has spoken out about his exit from Big Brother 2016.

And the reason he gives for his removal from the show tonight is quite a strange one.

Channel 5 confirmed this Tuesday (June 13) evening that Andrew, who had been living in the main house as an uncover Housemate after moving from The Other House, has been removed less than a week into the show.

A spokesperson for Channel 5 said: "Due to information Channel 5 and Big Brother became aware of today, Andrew Tate has been removed from the Big Brother House."

Precisely what has prompted Andrew's departure has yet to be confirmed, however he has taken to Facebook to put his side of the story across.

The kickboxer has claimed that he had made a plan to cause trouble as part of his secret mission to get Laura Carter up for eviction and unsettle The Housemates.

However, supposedly, it was just too much for show bosses.

"I had a new plan that I wanted to do which was much better than calling them snakes," Andrew said in a Facebook Video. "The producers were worried [...] it was going to kick off in a big way.

"Since I've been in there, Marco threatened to hit me, Chelsea threatened to hit me, Jackson threatened to hit me, and they [the producers] were saying if one of them takes a swing at you, don't hit back, you'll destroy them, you'll annihilate them, you're a pro fighter.

"They decided that my new plan was just too risky and I had to leave, so enjoy the show without me."

UPDATE: Channel 5 have responded to Andrew's video with a spokesperson saying: What Andrew says in that statement is completely false."

They added: "Andrew was not removed because of his actions inside the House. Nor was he removed for tweets allegedly posted by him prior to his entering the House.

"Andrew was removed because of information which came to light today."

Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
