Ken Morley has been "removed" from the Celebrity Big Brother house for "offensive behaviour".

Channel 5 said it followed a warning from programme bosses "in the strongest possible terms" on Saturday's show.

The broadcaster wouldn't go into any further detail.

Ofcom told Newsbeat earlier it had received 233 complaints about Ken Morley for offensive and disrespectful language.

A statement from Channel 5 reads: "Tuesday's eviction is now cancelled and lines are now closed.

"Anyone who has already voted will be able to apply for a full refund and details will be available on the Big Brother website within 24 hours."

The Coronation Street actor is accused of using racist language and being sexist.

The show's bosses had already formally warned him about "offensive" language during chats with R&B singer Alexander O'Neal.

He was also called out over "unacceptable" sexually suggestive comments directed at female housemates.

Son's apology

The 71-year-old's son, Roger, apparently posted an apology on behalf of his dad on Facebook at the weekend.

He said he would like to apologise to anyone "offended by my dad's behaviour".

Separately, Ofcom has received two complaints about the use of an offensive word by Katie Hopkins and four complaints over the incident in which former Baywatch star Jeremy Jackson pulled open Chloe Goodman's dressing gown.

The actor has since been chucked out of the house, also for "wholly unacceptable" behaviour. Police are investigating the allegations.

The broadcasting watchdog will assess the complaints before deciding whether to investigate.
