What happened when Andrew Tate was on Big Brother?
Andrew Tate has become a hugely divisive figure online.
The 35-year-old has been heavily criticised for his misogynistic views and has been described as the "king of toxic masculinity".
But he has his supporters, and a huge social media following – including 4.5million followers on Instagram.
He first came to wider public attention when he appeared on reality TV show Big Brother.
But his stay in the Big Brother house proved to be short-lived, and he was kicked off the Channel 5 show after a video of him appearing to assault a woman emerged.
Tate told The Sun in 2016 that the video depicted role play.
In 2022, rape and domestic abuse charities including Rape Crisis England and Wales and Women's Aid called on TikTok to remove him from the platform over comments he's made in videos.
Amelia Handy, policy lead at Rape Crisis England and Wales told The Daily Mail: "These videos are a clear example of rape culture, where rape and sexual violence are minimised and survivors are blamed for crimes committed against them."
A TikTok spokesperson told MailOnline: “Misogyny and other hateful ideologies and behaviours are not tolerated on TikTok, and we are working to review this content and take action against violations of our guidelines.
"We continually look to strengthen our policies and enforcement strategies, including adding more safeguards to our recommendation system, as part of our work to keep TikTok a safe and inclusive space for our community."
