Big Brother Scot ejected for so­cial me­dia posts

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News - By Paul Drury

A SCOT­TISH con­tes­tant was kicked out of the Big Brother house last night fol­low­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into his­toric posts by her on so­cial me­dia.

El­lis Hil­lon, from Cam­bus­lang, La­nark­shire, was celebrating her 20th birth­day and had been in the house for only a day when she was abruptly asked to leave.

Chan­nel 5 bosses had been alerted to Miss Hil­lon’s re­cent Face­book his­tory, which ap­peared to carry racist and sec­tar­ian mes­sages.

Post­ing on Face­book in April, the McDon­ald’s worker shared a Rangers on Tour meme with the mes­sage ‘F*** The Pope and the IRA’. An­other en­try ap­peared to show sup­port for Loy­al­ist mur­derer Michael Stone.

Hil­lon also 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 un­ac­cept­able posts on so­cial me­dia, El­lis Hil­lon has been re­moved.’
