Singer Alexander O'Neal has left the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The exact circumstances of the American singer's departure have currently not been revealed, but the announcement follows an altercation with celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.

O'Neal was given a formal warning for a gay slur aimed at Hilton when responding to taunts from the celebrity blogger.

Hilton is said to have antagonised O'Neal by following him around the house, blowing kisses at him before being told by the singer: "I know what you want but you’re not going to get it… You’re going to sit there with that silly ass fa**ot look on your face."

O'Neal apologised for the language.

He left a message to the housemates – some of whom were visibly upset - which was read out by the announcer: "To all my housemates, I have had a great experience with you guys and I have mad love for almost all of you.

"I want you guys not to be sad that I’m leaving and to not let my departure interrupt your experience."

A statement from Channel 5 said: "Alexander O'Neal has chosen to leave the Celebrity Big Brother House."

A spokesperson for the broadcaster declined to comment further.
