Big Brother and resulting controversy

In 2016, Tate competed as an "other" housemate on the seventeenth season of the British version of the Dutch reality television series Big Brother. One week into the show, Tate was removed from the show for actions outside the house prior to the competition.[21] It was later revealed that Tate had been removed due to a video, obtained by The Sun, of him allegedly “hitting a girl with a belt”.[22] Tate said that the actions were consensual, the belt was actually made of felt, and that The Sun had edited the video significantly in order to make him look bad.[22] In a Facebook video, he claimed the real reason he was removed was because the programme's producers were “worried” about his “master plan",[22] which was denied by Channel 5.[23]
