Ellis Hillon was removed from the Big Brother 2018 house after the first night when racist tweets she'd posted about 9/11 surfaced.

Ellis has now spoken out for the first time since being removed from the house and attempted to apologise for the social media comments she made when she was 15 years old.

Speaking to a tabloid, Ellis said

"I want to stress how sorry I am about any offence and upset that was caused due to what I have said on social media."

"I understand that I was totally in the wrong and I should never have said such horrible things. All the comments were from my teenage years and I am deeply ashamed of them. I didn’t stop to think how they could be so hurtful at the time."
