165 people complain to Ofcom after Winston McKenzie’s homophobic comments

Celebrity Big Brother hasn’t been back for 24 hours yet, but it has already had complaints filed with Ofcom.

The TV Watchdog has received 165 complaints about comments made by Winston McKenzie on the launch show for Celebrity Big Brother.

The comments were made in McKenzie’s pre-recorded entry video. In the VT, McKenzie said: “I’d cope with a homosexual in the house. I guess i’ll just have to stand with my back against a brick wall all the time.”

The former boxer was booed by the live crowd as he entered the house.

Ofcom has said it will asses the complaints before deciding whether to launch an investigation.

Channel 5 has so far declined to comment.
