Big Brother contestant EMILY PARR has been booted out of the house for using racially abusive language.

The 19-year-old from Bristol used a racially offensive word while dancing with fellow housemates Charley and Nicky in the living room.

Emily was heard to say "Are you pushing it out you n*****?" to Charley, although she immediately made clear that she had not intended to offend and was instead joking.

In a discussion with the two afterwards, Charley and Nicky said they were not personally offended, while Emily conceded she needed to be more careful with what she said.

Nevertheless, at 03.30 BST, Channel 4 bosses removed Emily from the house immediately and she was told she would have no further contact with housemates.

Angela Jain, who heads the Big Brother commissioning team at Channel 4, told the Metro: "I think people watching the show tonight will agree that Emily spoke carelessly rather than maliciously.

"She understands why her involvement in Big Brother has had to come to an end and she very much regrets what she said."
