Big Brother Scot ejected for social media posts
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.’
