Celebrity Big Brother contestant Rodrigo Alves has been given a formal warning after he used "highly offensive" language on the reality TV show. "[Osborne is] too white for my sake", he said.

"Rodrigo, 35, added twice that he would prefer a "[N-word] boy".

Another Twitter user wrote: "Absolute joke that Rodrigo isn't being removed immediately for using the N-word".

He was also told the word he had used was "highly offensive" and was likely to have caused significant offence to his housemates and the viewing public.

Alves then repeated the racial slur after Gabby asked him what he had said.

Alves told Big Brother later that he used the slur because he was "drunk".

Big Brother said: 'Rodrigo, before you entered the Big Brother house, the rules regarding unacceptable language and behaviour were explained to you.

"This morning at 2.40am in the bedroom in a conversation with Dan, Gabby, Chloe and Natalie, you used the N-word twice".

Rodrigo replied: "Of course, I do understand".

He said: "Last night I was very excited to be here, and I had quite a lot to drink, and I was intoxicated. It was just excitement, I'd had quite a lot to drink". I was drunk. In fact I was very drunk, and today I'm very hungover, I've been drinking a lot of water. That wasn't necessary at all.

Big Brother responded: "None of that is relevant Rodrigo, that is not an excuse", before handing down the formal warning.

Some viewers feel Big Brother didn't go far enough, calling on Rodrigo to be removed from the house as others have been in the past.

But rather than remove him, producers decided just to issue him with a "formal and final" warning in the Diary Room. You can't use language like that.

"Rodrigo has received a formal and final warning and if such language is used again in the house, he will be removed immediately. Rodrigo has apologised for his comments".

And one person exclaimed: "Does not understand why Rodrigo has not been removed for saying the N -Word not once but twice [sic]!"

Big Brother continued: "Your language was totally unacceptable and is something Big Brother does not tolerate".
