A Hong Kong actors face was blurred out on a programme on Chinas state television after he shared a news report on social media about a new book suggesting that the former Chinese premier Zhou Enlai was gay, a news website reported.

Wong Heis face was pixelated out throughout his appearance on the reality TV programme The Great Challenge on the station CCTV 1 on Sunday evening, Kankanews.com reported.

The show features celebrities taking on various challenges and the programme with Wong involved stars becoming firefighters.

Wang An, a Beijing-based singer, posted on social media that Wong had blasphemed against Zhou Enlai on Facebook and called for him to be taken off the show.

Wang is a self-claimed anti-Taiwan independence singer and his post on January 1 now has over 6,000 likes and 1,000 shares on Weibo, Chinas equivalent to Twitter.

[Wong Hei] earns money and buys a flat in the mainland, eating and drinking well, then condemns mainland China when [he has] returned to Hong Kong and Taiwan. We have to report these kind of people, wrote Wang.

The director of the programme replied to Wang on social media: If we knew this, we wouldnt have employed him; if employed, we wouldnt have recorded; if recorded, we wouldnt use; if used, we wouldnt air.

The singer Wang was referring to a news report Wong shared on Facebook about a new book suggesting that Zhou was gay, the Apple Daily reported.

The Secret Emotional Life of Zhou Enlai was written by the Hong Kong-based author Tsoi Wing-mui.

Wong Hei said on Monday afternoon he regretted sharing the story on Facebook and it was never his intention to cause any offence to people on the mainland.

Recently, Mainland China artiste Vicki Zhao's (趙薇) popularity increased after the broadcasting of the series, Tiger Mom (虎媽貓爸) and the rating was considered good. She expressed that although she did not film series for several years, there was no strange feeling as the attitude was the same for filming series and movies. The only difference was she did not film series in Beijing for a long time and many of her friends visited Vicki Zhao with snacks during filming.

When mentioned about the parents sacrificed everything for their child in the series, Vicki Zhao objected it: "I do not agree the parent should live for their child and create the best learning practice, education and environment for them, but need to train the child's independence and adapt to the society." Vicki Zhao also disclosed she will not be filming series for a few years later as she had already accepted several movies. She predicted that she will be taking a break around 2 years after filming Johnnie To's (杜琪峯) new movie.
