A Big Brother housemate has been removed from the house after less than 24 hours.

“Pocket Rocket” Ellis Hillon only entered the house last night but was removed today after Channel 5 became aware of offensive tweets referring to 9/11.


“As a result of our investigation into offensive and unacceptable posts on social media, Ellis Hillon has been removed from the Big Brother house.” the channel said in a statement today.

Channel 5 confirmed Big Brother had been axed yesterday, but fans of the show have praised the shows makers Endemol on social media saying the long-running series is back at its best.
