Celebrity Big Brother 2016: Christopher Biggins REMOVED from the house

Why did Christopher Biggins leave CBB? Why was he removed?

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Christopher Biggins has been REMOVED from the Celebrity Big Brother 2016 house tonight by producers.

It's not clear exactly what has gone on, but it seems Biggins has said something that show bosses simply felt was just too much.

A statement from Channel 5 this evening said: “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."

They added: "Big Brother does not tolerate offensive language capable of causing widespread offence. Christopher Biggins has left the house.”

Biggins had been a favourite to win the competition but earlier this week caused controversy with some of his remarks.

Biggins and Renee Graziano have found themselves in hot water over comments they made in about bisexuals, claiming that it was 'nonsense' and they needed to 'pick a team'.

The outrageous conversation angered a LOT of people, with one viewer commenting: "If anyone made a negative comment about gay people, Biggins would be horrified."

Another added: "That was truly shocking. So sad to hear a Gay person put down somebody else's sexuality."

On Twitter ‏@MollBBUK wrote: "Bisexual erasure angers me! And it's a shame that it even occurs within the LGBTQ+ community! Disappointed with Biggins! #CBB"

‏@cocainezayn agreed: "So disappointed in biggins a GAY man and prominent member of the LGBT community erasing bisexuality like that what an idiot #BBUK"

It's not clear if Biggins' removal is over related comments or not, but his exit will be featured in SATURDAY's highlights show on Channel 5.

More is also expected to be in tonight's live Celebrity Bit On The Side following the eviction from 9PM on Channel 5 with Emma Willis.
