First Jeremy Jackson made a swift exit from the Celebrity Big Brother house, now Ken Morley has been evicted.
A decision was taken by show bosses to remove the former Coronation Street actor from the house after his repeated use of “unacceptable and offensive language” following his formal warning over the weekend.
In a statement, it was confirmed that “Ken Morley has been removed from the Celebrity Big Brother house for using unacceptable and offensive language following his formal warning.”
While the nature of his comments is not yet clear, Celebrity Big Brother also confirmed tomorrow night’s eviction would not take place:
“Tuesday’s eviction is now cancelled and lines are now closed. Anyone who has already voted will be able to apply for a full refund and details will be available on the Big Brother website within 24 hours.
Ken had caused controversy last week for his use of the word “n***o” while in conversation with singer Alexander O’Neal and his comments about female contestants’ bathroom habits which upset the likes of Patsy Kensit and Nadia Sawalha.
“I do realise the bathroom is the best place to look at women’s a***s,” he announced, later justifying his comments to Big Brother: “[I said it] to deliberately stir the crap up because they take too long in there when they use the bathroom.”
Following his behaviour, Ken was called to the diary room over the weekend to be handed his formal warning and was informed by Big Brother that a recurrence of his behaviour would result in his removal from the house.
