Celebrity Big Brother has had more than 1,000 complaints after just four episodes, with most of those focusing on Rodrigo Alves ‘ use of N-word.
The show has been plunged into a shock race row after the Human Ken Doll used the word twice, sparking 985 complaints to roll in.
Rodrigo, 35, was told off for using the word by the show when he used it as he spoke about his housemate Dan Osborne .
On Friday, he was heard saying: "I like a n***** boy. He’s too white for my taste.
"I like a n***** boy."
Rodrigo insisted his racial slurs came from drunkenness, and went into the Diary Room to explain everything.
He said: "Last night I was very excited to be here, and I had quite a lot to drink, and I was intoxicated.
"Today I’m very hungover, and obviously I regret that, using the n-word, that was not necessary at all. It was just excitement."
Fans then demanded to have Rodrigo removed from the house after this incident, and another where he asked Ben Jardine to show him his penis.
Ben was reclining in the bath when Rodrigo wandered up to him and tried to get him to expose himself in the bathroom.
Many fans took to social media to speak out against the cosmetic surgery fan, calling him "vile" and saying he made them sick for his attempts to try it on with Ben.
