Ken Morley kicked out of Celebrity Big Brother house

In a statement released today, bosses of the Channel 5 show have announced that Ken Morley has been kicked out of the house – two days after Jeremy Jackson was shown the door.

“Ken Morley has been removed from the Celebrity Big Brother house for using unacceptable and offensive language following his formal warning,” reads the statement.

“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 has received more than a few stern words from his housemates for his offensive comments – both racist and sexist – causing an unsettled living environment in the house.

Ken branded singer, Alexander O’Neal, a ‘nice big fat Negro’ before the 71-year-old was slapped with an official warning during Saturday’s broadcast, after he offended fellow contestants with sexual and racially-charged remarks he claimed to make in jest.

The former Coronation Street start drew shock when he said: “I don’t really want to have a shower, but I”m going into the bathroom because I know it’s a great place to look at women’s a**es.”

Before he was kicked out, Ken faced the first public vote alongside Alexander O’Neal and Chloe Goodman.
