Dan Osborne has been forced to deny he got Rodrigo Alves kicked out of the Celebrity Big Brother house because he was uncomfortable with the star walking around naked.
The former TOWIE star, 27, hit back at the claim on Twitter after a false statement pertaining to be from him appeared online.
The statement, now deleted from the internet, claimed Dan had asked for Rodrigo, known as the Human Ken Doll, to be removed because he was walking around naked, making him uncomfortable.
Earlier this week, in an interview with The Sun, Dan said of the reasons behind Rodrigo's premature exit: 'There was an incident in the house, it was just something inappropriate, I didn't appreciate it. I don't really want to talk about it.'
Hitting back over the false statement via social media, Dan responded to an inquisitive fan: 'Not one bit of that is true. Who released that statement?' On the subject of Rodrigo's removal from the house, Dan refused to elaborate on what had unfolded.
He said: 'I’ve had stories told about me, so I know it’s not nice. I don’t want to do that to anyone else. It wasn’t scary for me just uncomfortable... It’s just not me to talk about someone. I would rather not elaborate.'
And while Dan was left feeling 'uncomfortable' over the alleged incident, he admitted that it's unlikely he'd ever confront Rodrigo about it if they ever saw one another again.
'I never bumped into Rodrigo before going into the house so I probably won’t bump into him again,' said Dan. 'If I did I wouldn’t have a chat about it, I would say hello.'
Rodrigo has not commented on the reasons why he left the house or Dan's recent claims.
The star has denied anything untoward happened in the house and insists he left of his own accord.
Dan's revelation comes after Rodrigo apologised for his use of the N-word on CBB , explaining that being of black heritage himself, and having English as his second language, meant he didn't realise how offensive the term is.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, the 35-year-old plastic surgery enthusiast insisted that he is not racist, and meant no malice with his words
Rodrigo, who received a formal and final warning for declaring 'I prefer n***** boys' during a chat about his type of men in the CBB house, revealed: 'I made a huge mistake when I was in the Celebrity Big Brother house, but I am most definitely not a racist.'
The TV personality — who is of mixed race heritage — explained: 'In Brazil, I was bought up in a multicultural, multiracial society. I am very proud of my Latino and black heritage.'
He added: 'English is not my first language. Through my Brazilian upbringing, my black family members and street/hip hop music in Brazil I was not naturally conditioned against the word.
'I was naive not to realise how offensive what I said is in English speaking countries, and what that word represents in terms of the horrific and sustained human rights abuses against black people over many generations.
'For this, I offer my sincerest and heartfelt apologies for any offence I may have caused. Racism is a state of mind often manifesting itself in abusive language.
'In my case, my use of a particular word has been used to portray me as having a mindset that I don't have and never have had.'
Rodrigo - who was later removed from the house for a 'serious incident' according to CBB bosses, whilst he claims he left on his accord - added: 'I used an expression frequently used in Brazil that describes a particular look because I could not find the right words in the English language.
'Channel 5 could have chosen not to broadcast the footage and I am surprised they did. However, it was me that made the mistake and me who will take responsibility for it.
'I can only assure people that I understand the offence I caused; that it was not intentional; and apologise. It won’t happen again.'
Rodrigo was said to have been barred from the Celebrity Big Brother final after he departed the house, allegedly due to a 'serious inappropriate incident'.
Rodrigo previously told MailOnline upon his exit that it was his own choice to leave.
The Sun also claimed: 'Rodrigo behaved seriously inappropriately inside the house. It came to the attention of producers who watched the footage back.
'After a discussion they decided the only course of action would be to remove him from the house. Producers wanted minimum disruption to the show after making their decision.'
The Brazilian TV personality hit back at critics as the rumours have continued to circulate after his shock departure.
A show insider exclusively revealed to MailOnline that Human Ken Doll suffered a 'meltdown' after entering the Diary Room, where he was last seen heading.
What went on in the room was supposedly too much to be explained or shown on the show, and Rodrigo had to leave immediately.
