Earlier today, a Big Brother spokesperson confirmed that Ellis was under investigation following the uproar over her tweets.

Taking to Twitter, Big Brother wrote: 'As a result of our investigation into offensive and unacceptable posts on social media, Ellis Hillon has been removed from the Big Brother house'.

When Ellis was being interviewed before entering the house she said that should could win the show if "if people like me" and that she hated bullies.

Admitting she's known for one wild dance move in particular, the 19-year-old said she's known to "sl*t drop" anywhere and everywhere. "RIP to everyone who died n f*** they smelly paki terrorist bastards!"

"Human Ken Doll" Rodrigo Alves was also removed by producers in the most recent celebrity series last month, after he received a final warning for using the n-word twice on his first night.

After the tweets resurfaced, a spokesman for Channel 5 told the Mirror: 'We are now investigating the authenticity of a number of historic social media posts'. Not that I get involved with things, but if someone made someone upset I'd be like, "Who do you think you are?"'

Ahead of her Big Brother debut Ellis said: 'People always say Ellie you're unintentionally amusing, I would literally walk through ASDA and do a s**t drop.

Since changing to a best-of-five format for the Finals in 2005, no WNBA team has gone down 2-0 and recovered to force a Game 5. In Game 2 they were 0-for-16, though they forced 15 turnovers and were in the game until the end losing 75-73. "Not now.

Ahead of the tweets coming to light, bubbly Ellis had been an immediate favourite with the crowds.

However, despite confessing that her housemates may find her a tad annoying, Ellis described herself as "nice".

Last week Celebrity Big Brother finished its season, and quickly saw rumours that the entire show was to be cancelled after this year's civilian version of the show.

In 2015 former pornstar Tila Tequilla was also removed after one day on the show after a photo emerged of her posing as a Nazi concentration camp guard.

The Twitter account was shut down just hours after Hillon entered the house and the tweets began to resurface, however Hillon's sister - who is managing a new account on behalf of her sister - insists the tweets are false.

She tweeted: "There are no bad tweets".
