Big Brother 2016: Contestant Andrew Tate Is Removed From The House As He’s Slammed Over ‘False Claims’
It was claimed that homophobic and racist tweets were behind Andrew’s removal, but Channel 5 have since released a statement on the matter.
It’s safe to say that the latest series of Big Brother has been pretty controversial so far, what with Marco Pierre White Jr and Laura Carter’s sauciness.
But things have just been turned up another level, because contestant Andrew Tate has been removed from the house – and everyone’s all a bit confused as to why.
Last night, it was revealed that the kickboxer had been evicted with immediate effect, and while some thought his removal was due to offensive tweets he had posted before he entered the house, Channel 5 have now confirmed that this was not the case.
In a statement on Facebook, Andrew told his fans: “I’m no longer in the Big Brother house, I’m afraid. I had a new plan that I wanted to do which was much better than calling them all snakes.
“I had an amazing master plan and the producers of the show were worried that if I did such an amazing plan and got caught that it was going to kick off in a big way.”
He also went on the claim that Marco, Chelsea Singh and Jackson Blyton all threatened to hit him, and the BB producers ‘begged him’ not to fight back as he would ‘destroy them’.
But now, Channel 5 have responded to Andrew’s claim in a mysterious statement, explaining: “Channel 5 and Big Brother have become aware that Andrew Tate has posted a statement on Facebook about the circumstances of his departure from the Big Brother House.
“What Andrew says in that statement is completely false. Andrew was not removed because of his actions inside the House.
“Nor was he removed for tweets allegedly posted by him prior to his entering the House. Andrew was removed because of information which came to light today.”
Sadly, we don’t think we’ll be getting a clearer explanation than that – but we’re sure Andrew will continue to keep this whole drama going on Twitter.
