This disgraced star has also addressed his comments about bisexuals
Shamed Christopher Biggins has broken his silence following his removal from the Celebrity Big Brother house, revealing he has apologised to fellow housemate Katie Waissel for a joke he made about Nazis – but standing by some of his other controversial comments.
The 67-year-old star was kicked out of the CBB house on Friday, with host Emma Willis confirming the news at the start of the evening’s live eviction.
Having gone to ground in the wake of his ejection, Biggins has now spoken out about the comments – including a ‘joke’ he made about Nazi concentration camps to Jewish Katie – saying he told the former X Factor finalist: ‘I’m so sorry’.
Speaking to The Sun, the star said: ‘I found Katie and said ‘I am mortified. I would never do anything to upset you. I love you and I’m really sorry’.’
He also admitted that the ‘joke’ – which saw him telling Katie, ‘You better be careful or they’ll be putting you in a shower and taking you to a room’ during a row in the bedroom – was about Nazis, but said that at the time ‘it didn’t occur to me that’s what I was referring to.’
Biggins added: ‘Katie is a very sensitive girl with a few issues.’
But whilst he showed remorse for his comments to Katie, Biggins stood by his controversial views on Aids, after Big Brother rapped him for suggesting that bisexuals were responsible for spreading the disease.
He said: ‘We were discussing Aids. Renee said she knew a CIA man who told her that the American government had come up with the virus in order to get rid of people in Third World countries.
‘I’d heard the rumour. Then I said there were a lot of bisexuals who went to these countries and had sex and then took it back to their wives or lovers and gave them the virus.
“That’s what I’ve read and that’s what I believe. It was a very interesting conversation.’
During his time in the house, Biggins also received a warning for saying that bisexuals were the ‘worst kind’ of gay people.
The entertainer also broke his Twitter silence in the early hours of Sunday morning, thanking his followers for their support
