Andrew Tate kicked out of Big Brother over shocking footage
Andrew Tate was allegedly axed from 'Big Brother' after shocking footage emerged of him whipping a girl with a belt.
The kick boxer was removed from the house on Monday (13.06.16) - less than a week into the series - after the clip, which was recorded in 2012, was obtained by a publication.
Taking to his Twitter account after his swift exit, Andrew wrote: "The video to be released is of me hitting a girl with a belt. They've edited out all the laughing and joking.
"They are pretending I beat her up when we were joking. The belt made a noise but didn't hurt! I am not a violent man. Kinky, yes. Violent, no. I have never hurt a girl in my life and this is a total lie trying to make me look bad. What is this all about?"
However, Andrew believes there could be a number of reasons why bosses of the Channel 5 show booted him off the programme and thinks his "new plan" had a part to play.
He added:"Everyone reads '50 Shades of Grey' and no one cares. They kicked me out because I told my new plan to Big Brother and they said it's too clever and dangerous."
However, a spokesperson for the programme has denied Andrew's early exit had anything to do with his "plan" or the derogatory remarks he made about Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and her ex-husband Ashley Cole, which emerged earlier this week, on his Twitter account a few years ago.
The spokesperson said: "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."
Meanwhile, it seems bosses of the reality TV show aren't taking bad behaviour lightly as Ryan Ruckledge also faces removal after a series of offensive tweets surfaced online.
The former 'X Factor' reject - who was booted off the singing show in 2013 when he rocked up to his audition drunk - has come under fire after he made derogatory remarks about 2013's 'Big Brother' winner Luke Anderson in a series of tweets three years ago.
He wrote at the time: "Luke A i really hope you make the most of your m**** while youve got it cos we all no you gonna buy urself a black c*** with your winnings! (sic)"
