Ellis Hillon has been removed from the Big Brother house following the investigation into a string of offensive tweets.

"We'd also like to thank our brilliant presenters - Emma on Big Brother and Rylan from Bit on the Side - for their consummate professionalism, Marcus, the voice of Big Brother and all of the housemates who have created so many memorable moments".

Shortly after her TV debut, viewers started sharing vile racist tweets said to be taken from Ellis' Twitter account.

One post, which dates back to September 2014, reads: "Oh f***, aye it's 9/11". RIP to everyone who died n f*** they smelly p**i terrorist bastards!' The Twitter account was shut down just hours after Hillon entered the house and the tweets began to resurface, however Hillon's sister - who is managing a new account on behalf of her sister - insists the tweets are false.

Another, which followed on January 24 2015, was: 'Real n****s #sbo'.

Ellis Twitter account was deleted last night.

Representatives for Big Brother declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline. People just talk absolute rubbish and make fake things up.


The programme had previously confirmed that producers were investigating "the authenticity of a number of historic social media posts" by Hillon.

Ellis has already caused a stir in the house as she was seen flashing her bum when she entered the house.

She then urged followers to be positive, adding: "There will be no negativity here and my sister will shine".

'I'll probably annoy some people to be fair, but it's gonna be good telly isn't it. Could you get Irn Bru in the BB house?'

This isn't the first time producers have removed contestants from the Big Brother house - civilian and celebrity - for their use of homophobic or racist language.

In 2015, Playboy bunny Tila Tequila was also booted off the show, after pictures of her posing as a guard at a Nazi concentration camp emerged, alongside social media posts in which she described Hitler as "not the bad person he was made out to be".

"As you may have heard today, this will be the last ever series of Big Brother on Channel 5".
