Big Brother 2017 live launch - Lotan Carter

Channel 5 has confirmed that Lotan Carter has been removed from Big Brother 2017 by producers after security entered the house to break up an explosive argument last night.

The broadcaster confirmed the news this afternoon, and has taken the unusual step of moving tonight’s episode – which will feature the full story of his departure – from its original 9.00pm timeslot to 10.00pm.

“Lotan has been removed from the Big Brother house and will not be returning,” a statement read. “The events leading up to this will be shown in tonight’s Big Brother at 10pm on Channel 5.”

The Sky EPG has updated to reflect the schedule change, with BB swapping places with OMG: My Barbie Body, which was originally due to screen at 10pm.

An exact reason Lotan’s ejection has yet to be confirmed, but a preview clip has been released showing a heated argument that occurred in the house last night.

The video begins with the Dreamboys dancer calling Isabelle “vain” for looking in the mirror, while she was supposedly only adjusting her mic pack.

Lotan insisted he was joking, but when Isabelle remarked that he’s “meant to be a role model to his son”, he took offence and threw a drink in her direction.

Moments later, a furious shouting match erupts between several housemates, and two security guards enter the house to break it up.

Lotan is the second housemate bosses have removed from this series, following Kayleigh Morris. His is also the fourth unexpected exit overall, after Arthur Fulford mysteriously “left” the show, and Sukhvinder Javeed voluntarily walked out.

The 28-year-old nephew of former CBB housemate Louie Spence had been nominated for this week’s eviction, alongside Hannah, Isabelle and Tom.

Channel 5 has confirmed to bbspy that the eviction will go ahead as planned on Thursday.
