Tonight's Big Brother 2018 sees housemates react to Lewis Flanagan' removal from the house - and here's a first look.

Channel 5 announced last Friday that Lewis had been removed from the house with "immediate effect."

A spokesperson for Big Brother said: "Lewis has been removed from the Big Brother House for unacceptable language that contravenes the rules. Lewis has left the House with immediate effect."

Big Brother airs tonight at 10:30PM on Channel 5 with all the aftermath.

In a first look clip released, Big Brother is seen gathering the then seven remaining housemates.

They then announce: "This is Big Brother. Housemates, Lewis has been removed from the Big Brother house and will not be returning."

They added: "Shortly, Big Brother will be placing Lewis' suitcases in the storeroom. Would one housemate ensure that one housemate packs all of Lewis' belongings and return the suitcases to the Diary Room."

There is a muted reaction from a lot of the housemates.

"I knew it was going to be that," claims Brooke, who looked the least surprised of all of them.

Cameron Cole then breaks down in tears: "I just want to see him."

Big Brother has not yet revealed what Lewis said - and it's not clear if they ever will do.

Yesterday, Lewis' family spoke out to deny what he said was in any way racist or homophobic. However, they did not clarify what did happen.

In scenes previously aired in Friday night's show, Lewis was seen in the Diary Room being told by Big Brother: "Before you entered the Big Brother house the rules regarding unacceptable language were explained to you.

"Last night you used language that contravened those rules. As a result, Big Brother has no choice but to remove you from the house."

Before exiting, Lewis told Big Brother he was "devastated".

He react: "I didn't mean to offend anyone, it was a slip of the tongue. I never once tried to offend anyone or hurt anyone's feelings. It's unacceptable... I've never meant to upset anyone or hurt anyone's feelings or disrespect anyone from any background or sexuality or race or gender or religion. So yeah, I'm sorry. Obviously I'm going to pay the price."

Big Brother is back tonight (Sunday) on Channel 5 at the later than usual time of 10:30PM with a 90 minute special.
