Celebrity Big Brother's Rylan Clark-Neal has defended the show over the latest fix claims.

Christopher Biggins this week hit out at the show after he was ejected one week in, claiming bosses wanted Bear to win and suggested they planned to get him out.

"Everyone has said it," Biggins told the Daily Mirror newspaper following the series final last month. "They wanted Bear or Marnie to win. And look what happened.

"I've had nothing but positive comments on Twitter since I left the house. I feel bosses wanted me out from the beginning."

However Bit On The Side host and former CBB champ Rylan has hit back.

Speaking to This Morning's hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, Rylan said: "I really like Biggins and was gutted he was removed - but we can't fix the show.

"You've seen the voting stats - there was only a percent or two in it between Bear and [runner-up] Ricky Norwood.

"When people moan about the edit [is one thing]... But it's the public picking up the phone and voting - we don't do the vote."

"I like him a lot," Phillip replied to Rylan, "but should he have been more dignified about this?" to agreement from co-host Holly.

Celebrity Big Brother continues in the new year on Channel 5.
