Big Brother press office has just released a statement to say that housemate Kayleigh Morris has been removed from the house.

It read: “Big Brother cannot tolerate threats of actual violence in the Big Brother house.”

The reality wannabe’s removal will be covered on tonight’s show at 9pm on Channel 5.

The Channel 5 show first revealed the news on Twitter.

They wrote: “BREAKING NEWS: Kayleigh has been removed from the House. More to follow.”

This was followed by: “Big Brother cannot tolerate threats of actual violence in the Big Brother house. This will be covered in tonight’s show 9pm, Channel 5.”

Kayleigh – who previously starred on MTV’s Ex on the Beach – has been a controversial character in the house.

There was another shock on the show last night as not one, but two contestants left the house during the live eviction.

As the results came in, controversial husband and wife Imran and Sukhvinder Javeed left togther – even though only Imran was eliminated in the public vote.

After Big Brother announced live to the house that he had been evicted, Sukhvinder surprised the other housemates by revealing she would be leaving with him.

The married pair left together to be greeted by the Channel 5 reality programme’s host Emma Willis and cheers from the crowd gathered outside the TV lock-up.

Imran and Sukhvinder told Willis they always intended to leave together and admitted they were happy to be out of the house.

Imran said that he thought his foe, Kayleigh, should have left before him, because of the “disgusting words” he said she had used.

Earlier in the week the Javeeds, who had been at the centre of several rows in the house, had riled viewers with a conversation about their dislike of Morris.

The couple were heard calling Morris a number of names as they complained about a row she had with Sukhvinder.

Sukhvinder said upon leaving the Big Brother house: “People are selfish and self-absorbed and don’t really give a [naughty word] about other people.”

Viewers were not impressed that Sukhvinder had been allowed a post-exit interview and appearance on companion show Big Brother’s Bit On The Side because she had left of her own accord rather than being booted out by the public.
