Big Brother housemate removed over unacceptable language

Big Brother contestant Lewis Flanagan has been removed from the house for "unacceptable language" but says he's "not ashamed" of what he's done.

Viewers were shown the moment the 27-year-old from Stockton-on-Tees was called into the diary room and told to leave.

He said that he was "obviously devastated" and that what he said was "unacceptable".

Big Brother said there was no choice but to remove him immediately. His response: "I never come here to offend anyone or hurt anyone's feelings."

He said: "I'm not ashamed because I didn't try to offend anyone - it was a slip of the tongue.

"Unfortunately for me my bad language and misuse of certain phrases and certain words has exploded in my face."

"I never meant to upset anyone or hurt anyone's feelings or disrespect anyone from any kind of background, or race or religion, so yeah I'm sorry."

It's not yet clear what Lewis actually said to be removed but on his Twitter account, which says in the bio it's being run by his family, it said it was "nothing to do with racism."
