‘s James Jordan threatened to hit his fellow housemate Gary Busey yesterday (August 20) after Busey made crude insinuations about his sexuality.

During an exchange in the Celebrity Big Brother bedroom, The Mirror reports, Hollywood veteran Busey said to former Strictly Come Dancing professional Jordan: “You are gay, aren’t you?”

In response, Jordan confirmed that he is straight, explaining that he has been happily married to his wife for eleven years, and has many gay friends.

However, Busey then asked Jordan if he liked “to get butt-f**ked” and said that the Strictly Come Dancing star has a “little Vaseline tube in every part of his luggage”.

Jordan, clearly aggravated by the actor’s comments, then said to Busey: “I’ve never hit a 70 year old before. You should be careful what you say, you might be 70 years old, but be careful what you say.”

After a tense few minutes, Busey apologised to Jordan and insisted that he meant what he said to be humorous.

“If you are [being humorous], then I took it the wrong way, and I apologise,” Jordan said in response.

Meanwhile, another Celebrity Big Brother housemate, Leslie Jordan, is set to appear in the next series of ITV’s hit sitcom Benidormfind out more here.
