Big Brother returned to Channel 5 this week (September 14) for the last ever series of the hit show.

Here’s why Ellis Hillon was removed from Big Brother 2018.

Why was Ellis Hillon eliminated from Big Brother?

Housemate Ellis Hillon was removed from Big Brother 2018 last night (September 15).

The 19-year-old was taken out of the house following an investigation into historical offensive tweets containing racial slurs she had posted to Twitter previously.

Big Brother posted on Twitter: “As a result of our investigation into offensive and unacceptable posts on social media, Ellis Hillon has been removed from the Big Brother house.”

Rylan Clarke-Neal also went on to confirm the news shortly after.
