Ellie ‘granted citizenship’ during first Big Brother game


Big Brother hopeful Ellie Young has proved popular already having been ‘granted citizenship’ to the house in the first game of the series.

The Castleford party girl was named among those who could enter the most comfortable side of the house - Rose Cottage - while the rest were put into the ‘exiled’ side - Thorn Cottage.

The decisions were made by housemate Tom Barber, after the first public vote saw him being named the ‘people’s housemate’.

And he picked those who had committed minor indiscretions to go into Thorn Cottage.

Those he banished included housemate Chanelle, whom he labelled ‘annoying’, Raphael was sent into exile for saying he was ‘game player’ and Arthur for drinking too much of the house’s booze.

Despite being early days, the signs appear positive for former Castleford Academy student, Ellie, pictured above in the show’s dairy room.

The 23-year-old is no stranger to being on camera having previously starred in ITV2’s Ibiza Weekender working as a holiday rep.

Big Brother continues tonight on Channel 5 at 10pm.
