Rylan Clark has responded to claims that Celebrity Big Brother is unfairly edited.

The Big Brother's Bit On The Side host responded to comments made by ex-housemate Ken Morley, who was removed from the house this week following repeated use of language that Big Brother deemed "offensive and unacceptable."

While appearing on Loose Women, former Coronation Street actor Ken claimed some of the on-screen footage shown to viewers was not a true reflection of his short stay in the house.

"What does make a difference to me is what you have not seen," said Ken. "Television edits, the bits they don't want you to see, goes out."

Ken then claimed that Cami Li "bit" him "hard" on his ear. He added: "Do you think you saw that? No you didn't and there's a lot more you didn't see."

Rylan, who won the 11th series of CBB in January 2013, told BBC Newsbeat yesterday: "Unless you've said it or unless you've done it, we can't show it.

"At the end of the day, they've said it. We don't force drink down housemates' throats. We don't force them into situations."

Before Ken's removal from the house, former Baywatch star Jeremy Jackson was also kicked off the show after he drunkenly pulled back fellow housemate Chloe Goodman's robe to reveal her bare breast.

Rylan continued: "You can't really edit anything that has happened over the past few days in a certain way. We've shown you the stream. You saw the incidents surrounding Ken and Jeremy Jackson from start to finish."

Rylan, who said CBB follows "stories that happen in the house", added: "Big Brother has never edited in a way that's not a true reflection. You don't see everything because we're not on for 24 hours a day."

Defending the show once again, Rylan also took to Twitter last night, saying: "Re @bbuk editing.... If you don't say it, we can't show it. #loosewomen."
