Celebrity Big Brother sparks race row after black housemate Stacy Francis is 'edited out' during task


CELEBRITY Big Brother has been caught up in a race row as fans accuse All Star housemates of racism after Stacy Francis is edited out.

The drama kicked off following Tuesday night’s launch show saw the All Star housemates made ‘Producers’.

Taking them to a separate room, Big Brother informed the group they they would be using previous storylines to make decisions and create tasks.

They would also have to watch the remaining housemates entrances and ‘edit out’ who they think is the least entertaining housemate.

The unlucky person would then be treated differently and excluded from key moments throughout the secret mission.
