Big Brother Canada houseguest to be replaced

Global have today confirmed that they have removed upcoming houseguest Ethan Quance from the cast of Big Brother Canada due to concerns raised. 

Shortly after his casting announcement, comments made online accused him of assault, and making racist comments. A video was also posted online of him making a homophobic slur.

In a statement on the official Big Brother Canada Twitter account responding to the claims, the show said that whilst the allegations remain unproven, they could not proceed with casting him in the season and that he would be replaced.

Big Brother Canada premieres Wednesday at 7pm ET/PT on Global.
