Gay entertainer Christopher Biggins has gone on a biphobic rant in the Celebrity Big Brother house.
In last night’s episode of the British reality TV show, the actor and presenter claimed bisexuality was the ‘worst type’ of sexuality.
Speaking to Mob Wives’ Renee Graziano, he said: ‘Renee, you’ve got nothing against gays have you?’
And she replied: ‘I think it’s beautiful because it’s who you are and I think it’s natural.
‘But I think today in society, I think they kind of force things on people and confuse you.’
Biggins then added: ‘The worst type I’m afraid to say are the bisexuals. What it is is people not wanting to admit they’re gay.’
Graziano replied: ‘You have to pick a team!’
Viewers reacted angrily to the biphobic comments, calling on the show to punish the two contestants.
honestly big brother should pull up Biggins and renee for their biphobia, they would be pulled up if it was homophobia or racism. #CBBUK

Biggins married Australian actress Beatrice Norbury from 1971 to 1974, and later came out as gay. A fan of the Conservative party, he was opposed to legalizing same-sex marriage by saying marriage ‘is for heterosexual couples’. However he later attended a ‘I Do To Equal Marriage’ event.
In 2014, Biggins claimed bisexual men ‘ruin women’s lives’.
He said: ‘ ‘I think the people who fear homosexuality most are the ones who could be gay. The world is full of bisexuals because that’s the way they want to do it. What do they do? They ruin a woman’s life.
‘It’s so wrong, because you’re not owning up to what you are. You lead a double life so how can you be a real person?’
