Christopher Biggins didn’t last too long on Celebrity Big Brother after his big mouth got him into trouble, and now his biphobic comments are being looked into by broadcasting watchdog group Ofcom after they 20 complaints.

“We’re investigating whether a contestant’s comments about bisexual people were offensive and breached generally accepted standards,” a spokesperson said.

Biggins was removed from the house after he was given numerous warnings over his comments on bisexuals as well as making a joke about concentration camps. After fellow contestant singer Katie Waissel said she was not in the house to represent the Jewish community he reportedly said, “You better be careful or they’ll be putting you in a shower and taking you to a room.”

Ofcom will not be investigating those comments since they were not said on the air.

Biggins came under fire for a hateful conversation he had with professional mob wife Renee Graziano.

“I think it’s beautiful because it’s who you are and I think it’s natural,” she said. “But I think today in society, I think they kind of force things on people and confuse you.”

“I think the worst type though, I’m afraid to say, is the bisexuals,” Biggins added.

“That upsets me,” Grazino said. “You have to pick a team.”

“Yeah,” Biggins said. “What it is, is people not wanting to admit they’re gay.”

“Please pick a team!” Graziano pleads. “You can pick any one you want.”

“I know, I agree,” Biggins said. “I totally agree.”

He also claimed HIV/AIDS was a “bisexual disease,” blaming them for its spreading and becoming a national epidemic.

“There were a lot of bisexuals who went to [third world] countries and had sex with those people and brought it back to their own families in America, and that’s how it became a worldwide disease,” he said.

Biggins apologized, pointing out that he has Jewish, bisexual and black friends, a long and dubious favorite tactic of people apologizing for their bigotry.

He has previously been criticized for his views against same-sex marriage. Biggins has been in a civil partnership with Neil Sinclair since 2006.
