Romance is in the air already for Castleford’s Ellie Young after sharing her first kiss in the Big Brother house.

The bubbly 23-year-old shared the tender moment in bed with housemate Lotan Carter just 48 hours after the Channel 5 programme launched.

It comes as no surprise after the pair flirted during a playful pillow fight and cosied up in the hot tub.

Modest Ellie even admitted to another housemate, Mandy Longworth, that she had a crush on Lotan, who later reciprocated and told her she was beautiful.

Ellie starred in ITV2’s reality programme, Ibiza Weekender, as a holiday rep before auditioning for Big Brother’s 18th series.

Her mother Julie told the Express earlier this week that she underwent six months of gruelling auditions before finally being accepted.
