Celebrity Big Brother gets complaints over Biggins' removal and 'bullying' of Heavy D


More than 200 people have complained about Celebrity Big Brother over the weekend.

Ofcom has confirmed it's had over 213 objections to content both on and off the air.

Issues that were raised by viewers included Christopher Biggins' ejection with 86 people feeling his exit as unfair.

And some complained what wasn't even on TV, annoyed that Big Brother failed to show some of the remarks that led to his ejection.

Biggins was axed from the show on Friday evening with Channel 5 saying at the time: "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.

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

More complaints were made over perceived by bullying by Lewis Bloor and Marnie Simpson aimed at Heavy D, an issue raised over the weekend in the Diary Room.

A spokesperson for Ofcom said: "We have received 213 complaints about Celebrity Big Brother over the weekend.

"We will assess these complaints before deciding whether to investigate or not."

So far more than 500 complaints have been made in total about this year's CBB series which is now into its second week.

Previous incidents already being looked into include Aubrey spitting into Bear's food and Marnie flashing her boobs in Saira's face.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
