Who is Ellie Young?

23-year-old Ellie Young hails from West Yorkshire.

Before Big Brother Ellie starred on ITV reality show Ibiza Weekender.

The in-demand star reportedly turned down a place on Love Island, which started on the exactly the same day as the current series of Big Bro.

Ellie had initially been signed up to enter the house as a pair with fellow Ibiza Weekender star Hayley Fanshaw.

But Big Bro bosses offered her the chance to ditch Hayley and go in on her own as she has a good shot of winning.

The decision is said to have torn their friendship apart, with Hayley furious about being left behind.

When is Big Brother on Channel 5?

On weeknights, the reality show generally airs at 10pm, lasting for an hour, with spin-off show Big Brother’s Bit on the Side following straight after.

However, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays the fun kicks off at 9pm, with the live eviction shows airing on Friday nights.

Big Brother typically lasts around two months, with last year’s series the shortest in the show’s history, lasting just 50 days.

This year’s show is expected to run for about the same length of time, though nothing is set in stone yet.

Who is presenting Big Brother 18?

Emma Willis has returned to host the 18th series of Big Brother, having begun her stint on the show back in 2013.

The outrageous Rylan Clark-Neal is continuing at the helm of popular spin-off show Big Brother’s Bit on the Side for all the gossip from the house.

Where is the Big Brother house and what does it look like?

The Big Brother house is in the Elstree studios in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire just a 22 minute train journey from London Kings Cross Station.

This year, the house’s theme has been inspired by the General Election and Brexit.

Big Brother 18’s official title is The United Kingdom of Big Brother, and the house has been given a kitsch makeover, with rooms inspired by various aspects of British culture.

A devilish twist sees housemates forced to live and sleep in separate spheres in the house, in keeping with the series’ class-oriented theme, The United Kingdom of Big Brother.

Those sleeping in the grotty bedroom have to deal with graffiti on the walls and furnishings, rickety wooden bed frames, a dirty carpet, old hand-me-down bedding and minimal storage.

Meanwhile the luxury bedroom is the definition of cosy, with beautiful turquoise walls, animal imagery, pristine bedding and a homey atmosphere.

How long has Big Brother been running?

The Big Brother reality TV concept originated in the Netherlands, with the first series airing in 1997.

Following its success, the show came to the UK in 2000, with Craig Phillips the British version’s first winner.

After 11 series on Channel 4, Big Brother moved to Channel 5 in 2011, where it has remained ever since.

The show has provided some of the most controversial moments in reality TV history, and catapulted the likes of Jade Goody, Nikki Grahame and Chanelle Hayes to fame.
