The 33-year-old made the comments two years ago which show bosses only learned about today and removed her from the house.

In the picture, which was posted to Facebook in 2013, she is wearing a Nazi uniform and photoshopped in front of Auschwitz. She also described Hitler as a "sweet kid" and reportedly had her Facebook account suspended on several occasions for her controversial comments.

Tila, only entered the house last night and Channel 5 confirmed the news in a statement this evening.

“Unfortunately, Channel 5 and Endemol did not know about the views and attitudes Tila had expressed in social media postings prior to her involvement in Celebrity Big Brother," the statement said.

"When they were brought to our attention, she was called to the Diary Room for a discussion with producers and was subsequently removed from the house.

"The views Tila had expressed, and permitted to remain uncorrected, are totally unacceptable and, accordingly, her continued involvement in the programme was untenable.”

It's believed she will not receive the estimated €150,000 fee agreed for her participation  in the show.
