Katie Waissel’s mum has called for the police to investigate recent alleged anti-semitic comments made by renowned panto star, Christopher Biggins, while in the Celebrity Big Brother House.

Biggins’ comments were branded a ‘hate crime’ by the singer’s mum, Diana Waissel, who said she felt ‘absolutely disgusted’ by the remarks, The Sun reports.

Channel 5 kicked Biggins off the reality show after he received three warnings over ‘offensive’ remarks he made while in the house.

Speaking to The Sun, Biggins admitted that he’d made an inappropriate ‘joke’ about concentration camps to Jewish housemate Katie Waissel.

He apparently said:

You better be careful or they’ll be putting you in a shower and taking you to a room.

The z-list celeb now admits that he was joking about the Nazi’s, who attempted to wipe out the Jewish people during the Holocaust, but claims ‘it didn’t occur to [him] that’s what [he] was referring to’.

The brief time Biggins spent on the show was extremely controversial and he was warned numerous times about comments he made about AIDS and bisexuals.

Speaking to The Mirror, Diana Waissel said: 

If his comments are as bad as we’re led to believe, they constitute a hate crime – police should be called in to investigate.

Our whole family have a proud Jewish heritage and are absolutely disgusted by Biggins.

But he’s not just hurt my daughter. It sounds like he’s said things offensive to most Jews.

He was a national treasure but now he’s not fit for TV. He should be banned – he’s a liability.


Katie Waissel’s grandparents were actually held at the notorious death camp Auschwitz and the singer has a star of David tattooed on her ankle.

Channel 5 cut Biggins’ joke from broadcast but rumours of his alleged anti-semitic jokes soon began to leak and he got the axe from Celebrity Big Brother.

It’s being reported he will not be receiving his fee for appearing on CBB.
