It was supposed to be a high-profile return to reality TV, but Amir Khan's glamorous wife claims she has been dropped from Celebrity Big Brother because of her views on Palestine 

The Big Brother spin-off is returning in March for its first series in six years, with Faryal Makhdoom initially thought to be among those entering the show's Elstree compound. 

But Faryal, a Brooklyn-born American of Pakistani descent, says her public support for Palestinians amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza has resulted in ITV dropping her from the family friendly show. 

In a blistering social media attack, the mother-of-two accused the channel of 'violating' her right to free speech. 

'As many of you know, I was offered to do a show for which the producers had offered me a few years ago and I had previously refused.

'I also wanted to do this show to make it more inclusive for the Muslim community. But it seems from my social media activity and being pro-Palestine is not appropriate for ITV and its sponsors.

'Mind you ITV and this particular show has had many controversial people on it before, but for some reason I was singled out.

'I was told to step down ten days before going in. I have never in my life been treated like this.

Faryal is reportedly keen to go into the Big Brother house for the public to get to know her after a rollercoaster year with her boxer husband, 37.  

Amir recently praised his 'forgiving' wife Faryal after he was publicly embroiled in several cheating scandals.

'Faryal is a huge signing for Celebrity Big Brother,' a source told The Sun.

'She’s had her ups and downs with Amir but wants to step into the limelight in her own right. Faryal has said she wants to show she’s not a doormat that he walks all over.
