Here's all the latest Big Brother 2018 news as the final series gets underway.

There was no show on Saturday night but the series will continue this evening on Channel 5 - and already lots has gone on.

Not more than one day after the launch of Big Brother's new series, one of this year's housemates has found themselves embroiled in controversy.

19-year-old Ellis Hillon has been ejected by show bosses after old Twitter posts resurfaced.

A spokesperson for Big Brother announced on Saturday evening: "As a result of our investigation into offensive and unacceptable posts on social media, Ellis Hillon has been removed from the Big Brother House."

In the house, there's already been some clashes between the new housemates.

Lewis Gregory's brash personality has immediately begun to grate on some people. Tomasz Wania was one of those particularly unimpressed, as Lewis made himself known to anyone who would listen.

"Maybe he's gonna calm down... 'cos if he doesn't there will be f**king war here," Tomasz told Cameron Cole. "Cos seriously, this can't be real This can't be f**king real, for goodness sake."

Meanwhile, Anamelia Silva and Isaac Jagroop locked horns over the money twist. On launch night, Big Brother announced the so-called 'Bank of Big Brother', involving Big Brother's new currency 'Big Coin', which would play a "very important" role in the series.

Big Brother explained that throughout the series, housemates would have the opportunity to win, earn or discover Big Coins. These could buy privileges, luxuries, and experiences, as well as being used to change the fate of the game.

For the first week, Big Brother announced that there would be no nominations and instead the three poorest housemates with the fewest Big Coins will face eviction.

Anamelia and Isaac rowed after she accused him of 'stealing' her coins.

Elsewhere, Lewis Flanagan has ruled out a showmance saying he is in "a relationship with himself": " I like my own company. You can go out with a pretty girl or pretty man and four months down the line, they ain't pretty any more. Next time I let someone in my life, I want to be completely sure they're on my level.

As for the latest Big Brother ratings, just 900,000 viewers tuned in to the opening episode on Friday night. It was the least watched launch Big Brother history.

Big Brother 2018 is back at 10PM tonight on Channel 5. Tonight's episode airs for 90 minutes to compensate for no Saturday show.
