Kayleigh Morris and Lotan Carter were both booted from the show separately last week after coming to blows with housemates.

The petition claims: ‘Every year this prime time TV show is fronted by unacceptable violence, language, sexual exploitation, and scenes of unacceptable behaviour suitable for television viewing.’

It continued: ‘Year upon year there are scenes of violence, past episodes of racial harassment, unacceptable behaviour and this is condoned by TV producers all in effort to gain viewing figures.

‘I am calling for Ofcom to immediately ban this from TV and prevent any further series from being produced.
