Christopher Biggins axed from CBB over biphobic remarks

Christopher Biggins claimed bisexuals are to blame for AIDS, in a shocking outburst which led to his removal from the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.

The openly gay star made his outrageous comments during a chat with 'Mob Wives' star Renee Graziano, where he called AIDS a "bisexual disease".

He said: "Gays had been really badly treated for so long. Then came a period where they were respected.

"But suddenly, a killer disease then came along which was attributed to homosexuals - but it was actually a bisexual disease.

"What the government didn't realise is that there were bisexuals out there who were having sex with those people.

"They then brought it back to their families over here and in America. That's how it became a worldwide disease. Whoever investigated AIDS f***ked up big time."

Earlier in the week, he had also slammed bisexuals, saying: "I think the worst type though is, I'm afraid to say, the bisexuals. What it is, is people not wanting to admit they are gay."

He is also alleged to have made a Nazi joke, which left housemate Katie Waissel in tears.

Before he was axed, Christopher told Grant Bovey: "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."

Revealing the decision to remove Christopher, Big Brother said: "Big Brother has taken the decision to remove Christopher Biggins from the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.

"Since entering Big Brother, he has made a number of comments capable of causing great offence to housemates and the viewing public.

"Big Brother does not tolerate offensive language capable of causing widespread offence."
