It's been a series full of Stephen Bear, toilet sex, massive peens flapping about, Stephen Bear, horrid cocktails and Stephen Bear, but by far the biggest shocker was Christopher Biggins' removal from the house.

Remember that? It seems as if it happened about 30 years ago, but it's actually been like two weeks.

He was tipped to win before he entered the house, but quickly became mega controversial after he made some ridiculous biphobic comments.

And a little while later it was revealed that he'd been evicted from the house and, as Big Brother failed to tell us how or why until the following episode, a whole lot of conspiracy theories started floating about. Someone even put in the effort to make an actual fake transcript purporting to show the reason.

We are still really wondering who that was…

It emerged he was actually removed from the house after being given three warnings for “offensive language” that could cause “widespread offence”.

One of these was more another comment about bisexuals – this time in reference to the disease AIDS.

He said: “I think it was a bisexual disease if I’m going to be honest. A guy went to Africa and what they didn’t realise is a lot of bisexuals went to those countries and had sex with those people and brought it back to their own families.”

And another was a Holocaust 'joke' that he'd made to Katie Waissel (who is Jewish) that wasn't aired on television.

But it now appears Katie has no idea about the circumstances behind his removal, as she has revealed that the housemates weren't told.

Speaking on This Morning today, she said: "I don’t even know what happened. I was concerned that something happened with his family.

"They didn’t tell us anything. I’ve got my reading to do."

Ruth then said: "I'm sure you'll find out now you're out," and Eamonn Holmes: "Give him a ring! Give him a ring!"

That is literally terrible advice, Eamonn.
