BIG Brother housemate Paul Blackburn is under fire over "making a transphobic comment" – with fans calling for him to be axed.
The 23-year-old was overheard making a controversial remark about transwoman Hallie on last night's live stream.
After the House was decorated for Halloween, Paul appeared to mock his evicted co-star by naming her after a skeleton in the garden, which had been given oranges as breasts and something else attached to resemble a penis.
Explaining what they'd witnessed on the live stream, one viewer said: "They named this skeleton Hallie and then did this to it. There's something in between it's legs. It doesn't look good…
"Paul told Olivia that when Yinrun sees it she won't like it. And they had a joke about it basically."
Another raged: "Paul showcasing how transphobic he really is with the skeleton in the garden.

"I'm so mad about that, still hoping that I heard that wrong but if that is true then big brother should intervene."
Someone else added: "Paul needs to be held accountable for this, Big Brother better speak up.
"This should lead to immediate removal. No excuses. ITV, do you condone transphobia or not?"
Hallie was evicted in a shock result on Friday night, having gone up against Dylan and Trish in the public vote.
