In today's 'Brass Eye is real' news, a contestant has been removed from Celebrity Big Brother after it emerged she had expressed admiration for Adolf Hitler on Facebook.

Channel 5 said Tila Tequila, glamour model, porn star and singer, had left the show because of her "totally unacceptable" social media posts.

In Facebook posts that have since been removed, the 33-year-old shared a blog called 'Why I sympathise with Hitler Part 1: True History Unveiled', and pictures of her wearing a swastika and an SS cap.

Channel 5 said in a statement:

When they were brought to our attention, she was called to the Diary Room for a discussion with producers and was subsequently removed from the house.

Post-eviction, Tequila apologised for her past actions, saying:

Back in 2013 I made a statement about Hitler not being a bad person, and immediately realised soon after that I had made a terrible mistake that would ultimately come back to haunt me.

She added:

I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible, reckless, and selfish actions and I hope that everyone can forgive me for the pain that I may have caused.

We wonder what James from The Apprentice makes of it all.
