Real reason Lewis F left Big Brother revealed after shocking ‘Auschwitz comment’

Big Brother viewers were left in the dark after Lewis Flanagan was removed from the house.

On Friday night, the Channel 5 programme revealed that he had been removed for "unacceptable language".

They failed to reveal the real reason he was given the boot, but it has finally been exposed.

He was reportedly forced to leave after making a shocking remark about Auschwitz.

Lewis, 27, said that he was "devastated" but "not ashamed" of his comments, insisting it was a "slip of the tongue".


A source close to Lewis told The Sun : "Lewis was talking to Cameron and told him: ‘When we get out of here, we’ll sort you out with some Auschwitz’.

"He said he was supposed to say ‘outfits’. He’s told people it was a slip of the tongue and he didn’t know why he said it."

Big Brother producers decided to air the moment that Lewis was told he would have to leave the house.

But they decided not to air the comments that got him kicked out of the house.

This led Big Brother viewers to speculate on why the fan favourite was removed.

Having been brought into the Diary Room, Big Brother reminded Lewis that he had used "unacceptable" language the previous evening.

During the live show on Friday night, viewers saw Lewis being told that Big Brother had "no option" but to remove him from the house.

In response, the bartender said: "I’m not ashamed because I didn’t try to offend anyone – it was a slip of the tongue… my misuse of certain phrases and certain words has blown up in my face.

"Ive never meant to upset or offend anyone… so yeah I’m sorry. Obviously I’m going to pay the price."

In a statement released on Friday, the Channel 5 programme said that the 27-year-old from Stockton-On-Tees has left the house "with immediate effect".

They said: "Lewis has been removed from the Big Brother House for unacceptable language that contravenes the rules.

"Lewis has left the house with immediate effect."

Lewis F is not the first housemate to be removed from the house during the final series of the programme.

Ellis Hilton , 19, was removed less than 24 hours after entering the house over offensive tweets she had written back in 2014.

In a statement confirming her departure, Big Brother said: "As a result of our investigation into offensive and unacceptable posts on social media, Ellis Hillon has been removed from the Big Brother House."

*Big Brother continues on Sunday on Channel 5 at 10pm
