It comes one day after the 19-year-old Scottish fast food worker entered the house during the live launch of what will be the last series of Big Brother to air on Channel 5.

Hillon reportedly wrote a message about the September 11 tragedy on Twitter in 2014 which contained a racist slur.

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