Big Brother bosses have removed boxer Daley Ojuederie from the series due to his "aggressive behaviour".

The 28-year-old from west London has been in the programme since the latest run of the Channel 5 series launched 33 days ago.

Daley, a professional middleweight fighter, was removed after he acted in a threatening manner towards housemate Hazel O'Sullivan, with whom he had been enjoying a close relationship. Earlier the same day the Daily Star newspaper said they were planning a "secret wedding" in Las Vegas.

But he has now been taken out of the show after programme-makers confronted him over his behaviour. At one stage he threatened to "nut her one" during a row.

As he was tackled over his aggressiveness in the house he was accused of slapping Hazel's bottom, as well as clasping her around the neck and pinning her to the bed by both arms.

Police have not been involved in the incident.

A statement issued by Channel 5 said: "Due to threatening and aggressive behaviour towards Hazel O'Sullivan, we have taken the decision to remove Daley Ojuederie from the Big Brother House."

Over the weekend the pair topped a public vote to win immunity from eviction this week. Despite their flirting, Daley already had a girlfriend of eight months before he began the series.

Four other contestants - Jemima Slade, Gina Rio, Dexter Koh and Dan Neal - have been issued with formal warnings about their behaviour towards the other housemates so far this series.

In his biography released as he joined the show, Daley said he had been unfaithful in the past but would never cheat on his current girlfriend, and said he would bring entertainment to the house without "getting it on with people".
