Celebrity Big Brother contestant Jeremy Jackson has been given a police caution for common assault after a housemate said she had her breast exposed.

Former Baywatch star Jackson, 34, was removed from the Channel 5 show after model Chloe Goodman said he opened her dressing gown, exposing her breast.

Hertfordshire Police said a man had assisted them with their inquiries.

Actor Ken Morley was also removed from the show, after complaints to Ofcom about racist and sexist language.

Channel 5 said the former Coronation Street star was taken out of the house - at studios in Borehamwood - for using "unacceptable and offensive language".

Jackson had been comforted by model Goodman as he vomited in the toilet in the early hours of Saturday after getting drunk.

She told other housemates: "I was helping him and he went to my dressing gown top and put my boob out."

Jackson later apologised, insisting he had not ripped open the robe in an aggressive way, but said: "I accept all the ramifications."

Producers said his behaviour was "wholly unacceptable" and removed him from the show.

Cameras do not film in the toilet of the Big Brother house but the aftermath of the row was shown in Saturday night's episode.

A tearful Goodman was shown being comforted in the diary room by fellow housemate Nadia Sawalha.

Jackson was later called to the diary room to be told he would be leaving the show and the police inquiry began.
