Christopher Biggins has been kicked out of the Celebrity Big Brother 2016 house after offensive comments.

Big Brother shocked everyone earlier this evening when announcing the news that Biggins had left the house.

A statement from Channel 5 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.”

Unconfirmed reports have suggested that Biggins left after making an 'offensive joke'.

Christopher Biggins' agent Jonathan Shalit said in a statement: "I've 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."

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

Biggins and Renee Graziano 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 and prompted complaints to Ofcom.

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