Celebrity Big Brother 2018: Hardeep and Sally Morgan clash in 'race row'

celebrity big brother 2018 day 23 - 23

Hardeep Singh Kohli and Sally Morgan came to blows in tonight's Celebrity Big Brother 2018 highlights.

It began when the housemates were acting out a play (of course) set in a hospital.

Playing the role of a doctor, Sally told 'patient' Hardeep: "Can you look ill, you look too brown.

"Have we got any talc? He needs to look paler, he looks too well."

Hardeep branded the remark "borderline racist" before leaving the room.

Sally tried to clear up Hardeep's reaction, with him commenting: "What do you think the problem is? I'm a brown man, I don't need talcum powder to look ill."

She replied: "You're taking this too far, H. This is ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. "

"I'm really worried about it going out and me looking racist," Sally later told some of the housemates. "I'm not having him say that or imply that. I'm not having him say anything about me in that way.

"I've never done anything that is racist, he's not ruining me."

The row then escalated as other housemates got involved, jumping to Sally's defence.

Later, Sally broke down and sobbed to Hardeep: "I've never ever said anything racist. I've not got a racist bone in my body."

The row came ahead of the evening's live eviction.

Hardeep and Sally both faced the axe and it was Hardeep who was evicted, which we saw on Friday night.

With the evictions done, the six celebrity housemates in the final were confirmed.

Alongside Sally they are Hollywood actress Kirstie Alley, Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas, The Only Way Is Essex star Dan Osborne, Gabby Allen, a Love Islander from Season 3 in 2017, and finally rogue trader Nick Leeson.

After Hardeep's exit, Big Brother gathered the group for an important announcement.

"This is Big Brother. Housemates, congratulations you are all finalists," Big Brother announced to jubilation from the group. "The store room is now open for you to collect some champagne. Enjoy the rest of your evening."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly on Channel 5.

The live final airs live on Monday night, September 10.
