CBB housemates left shocked at Christopher Biggins removal while James Whale and Stephen Bear are sent to 'jail' for rule-breaking


Two Celebrity Big Brother contestants have been sent to "jail" for rule-breaking as the housemates discover Christopher Biggins has been removed from the show.

In scenes airing in Saturday night's episode, DJ James Whale is punished for discussing nominations, while Ex On The Beach star Stephen Bear is caught consuming items from the winning team's luxury shopping delivery.

Bear can be seen later breaking out of jail, before being warned that his actions will have consequences for the rest of the house from both Big Brother and an irritated Sam Fox.

Veteran entertainer Biggins, 67, will appear in part of the episode, before his removal from the house for "comments capable of causing great offence to housemates and the viewing public".

In a statement, the Channel 5 reality TV show stressed that "Big Brother does not tolerate offensive language capable of causing widespread offence".

Viewers will watch Biggins have a prophetic conversation with Grant Bovey - who became the first housemate evicted by public vote on Friday - about struggling to control what he says.

Grant said: "I've just become really analytical of my actions and my words."

Biggins replied:  "I've made three mistakes in here so I've been chastised so I've become very aware and careful.

"Of course, the thing is as you relax it gets worse 'cause you think you're at home."

In Saturday's episode, Big Brother will gather the housemates at the sofas to inform them that Biggins has been removed from the house and will not be returning.

EastEnders actor Ricky Norwood and James are left to pack Biggins' belongings in his case.

Sam can be seen crying, saying: "I can't believe it, I'm upset."

Ricky said the decision is "not right".

Comedian Ricky Gervais backed his thoughts on Twitter, asking his followers if the eviction made sense.

A Channel 5 spokesman confirmed that a transcript circulating on social media that claimed Biggins made racist remarks and a Nazi slur was "100% fake".

Celebrity Big Brother will air on Channel 5 at 10.30pm.
