Big Brother viewers demand to know what Lewis Flanagan said after he's axed from the house for 'inappropriate langauage'

Viewers of the last ever series of the long-running show have been left to wildly speculate over exactly what 27-year-old Lewis said leading to his removal on Friday.

So far, Channel 5 have refused to shine light on the incident that resulted in Lewis being eliminated from the competition with immediate effect as the weekend began.

Asked for an update, a publicist for the show re-issued the one official statement, telling The Sun Online: "Lewis has been removed from the Big Brother House for unacceptable language that contravenes the rules. Lewis has left the house with immediate effect."

But fans on social media have been jumping to conclusions – as well as venting their fury over the lack of details.

“Lewis was my winner, wonder what he's said which has caused this to happen. Gutted!” one devastated fan tweeted as viewers began to ponder what exactly he could have said to warrant an immediate removal.



“Ok, so Lewis said it was a slip of the tongue, and he owned it that he would have to face the consequences! AND he apologised! #bbuk needs to show the footage to the viewers though,” demanded another.

While other fans have reached the conclusion that Lewis used a racist term, used a homophobic term – or overused the ‘c’ word.

Lewis himself has already stated that he is not ashamed of his actions – but accepted his punishment.

"I would say I'm devastated. I didn't mean to offend anyone, it was a slip of the tongue. I never once tried to offend anyone or hurt anyone's feelings. It's unacceptable,” he said upon learning he was being shown the door.

"I'm not ashamed of myself because I didn't try to offend anyone, it was just a slip of the tongue,” he continued.

"Unfortunately for me my bad language and misuse of certain phrases and certain words has exploded in my face. I would apologise to anyone who I've upset.

"I've never meant to upset anyone or hurt anyone's feelings or disrespect anyone from any background or sexuality or race or gender or religion. So yeah, I'm sorry. Obviously I'm going to pay the price," he said.

His official Twitter account – run by his family in his absence – attempted to downplay speculation that Lewis had said something racist.

“Thank you to the big brother production team for trying hard to keep Lewis in the house, but due to the nature of the conversation with Brooke and Cameron today. It was nothing to do with racism before you all start. Lol The owners of the station could not let him continue,” they tweeted.

Later, Lewis appeared to be completely unfazed by the controversy – looking overjoyed to return home to a champions welcome.

“Thank you all so for your support. Lewis is loving been home and he will catch up on this page tomorrow. He loves you all,” his Twitter account states, with video showing a crowd chanting his name as he arrived back to his home in County Durham late on Friday night.
