Big Brother's Ellis Hillon investigated over racist tweets about 9/11


Big Brother star Ellis Hillon is being investigated by producers after disgusting racist messages sent from her old Twitter account resurfaced.
The 19-year-old, who worked in McDonald's before bagging a place in the BB house, allegedly posted grim tweets about the September 11th tragedy and used the n-word in messages that have since been deleted.
Now the show is looking into whether she should be allowed to stay in the house.
"We are currently investigating the authenticity of a number of historic social media posts," a Channel 5 spokesman told Mirror Online.
Eagle-eyed fans of the show spotted at least two tweets that hadn't been taken down before she went into the house - and their discovery casts doubt over her future on the Channel 5 show.
One, sent on September 11 2014, when Ellis was 15, read: "Oh f**k aye its 9/11!! RIP to everyone who died n f**k they smelly p**i terrorist bastards!!!"
This racist tweet about 9/11 was sent from her account in 2015
Another tweet uses the n-word
Another tweet on January 24 2015 said: "Real n****s #sbo."
That Twitter account, with the handle @ellishillon, was completely deleted a few hours after Ellis entered the house on Friday night's launch show.
However, Ellis' sister - who is currently operating a new Twitter account under the handle @HillonEllis - has hit back at claims her sibling posted the vile tweets.
"There were no bad tweets!!! People just talk absolute rubbish and make fake things up," she wrote.
"There will be no negativity here and my sister will shine. Good night!!!!"
But she then liked a tweet from a supporter, who said: "Wasn't she 15 when she tweeted that?"
Big Brother producers take a dim view of housemates whose social media contains distasteful material - and have in the past kicked out contestants who have been accused of racism or homophobia.
Ex porn star Tila Tequila was booted out of the 2015 Celebrity Big Brother series after just one day after an image of her posing as a Nazi concentration camp guard emerged, while more recently, Rodrigo Alves was removed after using the n-word twice on his first night.
Ellis has already caused controversy when she flashed her bum on her entrance into the house.
She wore a short tight tartan mini-dress and black spiked heels and showed her underwear to the camera as she walked up the steps in the famous Borehamwood studios.
The Glasgow native describes herself as "lots of fun" and highly competitive, and believes she can win Big Brother "if people like me".
She's vowed not to have sex on TV as she doesn't want to "kill off" her elderly nan, and said before going into the house that she doesn't like bullies.
"[I wouldn't get on with] someone who is stuck up or someone who is a nasty person. Like that does not sit well with me, a bully, I don't like that," she told producers ahead of the launch.
"I would tell them to take a back seat – they would be told to sit down and pipe down. Not that I get involved with things, but if someone made someone upset I'd be like, 'Who do you think you are'.
