Big Brother contestant Ellis Hillon has been removed from the house, less than 24 hours after she went in.
Channel 5 has confirmed that the 19-year-old fast food worker from Glasgow has been removed from the house due to racist tweets and slurs.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">As a result of our investigation into offensive and unacceptable posts on social media, Ellis Hillon has been removed from the Big Brother House. <a href="https://t.co/wOwS6vuYmO">pic.twitter.com/wOwS6vuYmO</a></p>— Big Brother UK (@bbuk) <a href="https://twitter.com/bbuk/status/1041002760706121728?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">15 September 2018</a></blockquote>

Ellis appears to have tweeted the slurs back in 2014, when she would have been just 15.
The tweets related to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
