Big Brother 2017: "Wicked" Ellie Young is 'not as nice as everyone thinks'

Former Big Brother housemate Sue Evans has hit out at Ellie Young.

The evicted Second Chance Housemate has claimed Ellie is "wicked" and reduced Simone Reed to tears in the house.


Both Simone and Sue, who entered the show halfway through the series, were evicted last Friday night,

Speaking this week following her exit, Sue claimed: “Simone was victimised, brutalised and targeted. And of course, bullied. Honestly it was that bad. Honestly it was that brutal. Again, it wasn’t shown due to the editing.

“There were times where Simone was crying her eyes out, crying like a baby under her duvet in Rose Cottage and they would all walk out and leave her sobbing like a lump of mess. I had so much work to do. I had to talk to them about it. I had to talk to her about it.

"I had to sit down myself and think ‘what are these people? Who are they?’”

In an interview with OK! Magazine, Sue went on: “If only the public knew how wicked Ellie was!”

She explained: “She was the favourite in the beginning. Everyone thought she was so sweet. I did too, I couldn’t wait to meet her before I got in.

“In fact, when I walked in the house and I ran to Ellie to give her a hug and reassure her and asked her to stop crying… well she made Simone cry buckets. She wasn’t the ringleader but she was part of it, a very important part.”


Ellie is one of five housemates who face a double eviction tonight alongside Chanelle, Kieran, Tom and Hannah.

Big Brother 2017 airs tonight at 10PM on Channel 5.
