Everyone's talking about..Rodrigo Alves being kicked out of Big Brother

The reason behind Rodrigo Alves being kick out of the Celebrity Big Brother house has been revealed. 

A source said:

Rodrigo behaved seriously inappropriately inside the house. It came to the attention of producers who watched the footage back. After a discussion they decided the only course of action would be to remove him from the house

His behaviour was apparently so shocking that the producers of CBB decided against the scenes being shown.

On Rodrigo's first night he used the N-word, a derogatory racial slur that carried a lot of colonial meaning and power, twice during his first night in the house. 

There were 1,000 Ofcom complaints.
