Rodrigo on This Morning in January

Celebrity Big Brother fans have lashed out at producers for not removing Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves from the show after he used the N-word twice in Friday night's episode (August 17).

Brazilian TV personality Alves, 35, told former The Only Way Is Essex star Dan Osborne he was not attracted to him as he was "too white".

In 2007, contestant Emily Parr was ejected from the house for using the word towards a housemate.

Gabby asked Rodrigo to clarify what he said, and the latter repeated the slur.

Big Brother immediately took action and called Rodrigo to the diary room where he was reminded about the rules regarding unacceptable language and behaviour.

Rodrigo has received a formal and final warning and if he uses such language again, he will be removed immediately.

The girls want to know, not me, you're not my type anyway.

Rodrigo then tried to explain himself to Big Brother by saying: "Last night, I was very excited to be here, and I had quite a lot to drink".

And the Spaniard admits the pressure is on to get three points on the board when Arsenal take on West Ham on Saturday. If you need good technical players that they don't lose any balls, they can play together.

And one person exclaimed: "Does not understand why Rodrigo has not been removed for saying the N -Word not once but twice [sic]!"

"This morning at 2.40am in the bedroom, in a conversation with Dan, Gabby, Chloe and Natalie, you used the N-word twice". They told him: "None of that is relevant, Rodrigo". I had quite a lot to drink and I was intoxicated.

"Today I am very hungover and obviously regretting that, the fact I used the N-word".

'Behaving in a way that could cause serious offence to either their fellow housemates or members of the viewing public including serious offence based on the grounds of race.

I've seen Celebs kicked out the house for being sexist or using other offensive words, but when it comes to the N-word, Big Brother is happy to dish out a warning.

'I remember the 2007 Big Brother controversy when Emily used the N word, and complaints flooded in that C4 had even aired the word uncensored.

"Big Brother regards your language in this instance as totally unacceptable and Big Brother doesn't tolerate such language in the house". We have removed Emily from the house to once again make it clear to all housemates and the viewers at home that such behaviour won't be tolerated'.

'Celebrity Big Brother' continues tonight at 10pm on Channel 5.
