Channel 5 has confirmed that, despite calling for “poofs” to be shot on Twitter, a Big Brother contestant will not be removed from the house.

Danielle McMahon, who entered the Big Brother house last week, works as an underwear model and had featured topless in Nuts magazine. She said in an interview with the Daily Star that due to her Catholic beliefs, she thinks same-sex marriage is “just not right”.

PinkNews revealed earlier today that in comments apparently made by McMahon on Twitter last year, she called gay people “poofs” and “freaks”, suggested that they are not actually men, telling them to “man up”.

In one tweet she called for a gay person to be shot for using the word “lush”, saying: “Just seen a supposed guy use the word lush…. Shoot him, shoot him now How utterly cringe and vile #manup #poof.

Channel 5 declined to comment, but said that producers would not be removing McMahon from the house.

McMahon is up for eviction this week, along with Tamara Stewart-Wood and Jale Karaturp.

Despite working as a topless model, McMahon got annoyed when other housemates were discussing porn in the garden this week.

Fellow housemate, Playboy bunny Kimberly Kisselovich, got into a debate with McMahon this week, as the two clashed over the former’s acceptance of gay people.
