The 23-year-old holiday rep, who has also starred in ITV2’s Ibiza Weekender, is said to have ‘cosied up’ to three of the male housemates just hours after the show’s launch on Monday.

The fun-loving former Castleford Academy head girl was seen hugging and chatting with the male contestants throughout the night.

Speaking to the Express this week, her mother Julie, said Ellie’s biggest fear was to be voted off the Channel 5 reality programme first.

But while she makes herself popular among her fellow contestants, other reports have emerged that Ellie’s co-star from Ibiza Weekender was meant to have been entering the Big Brother house with her, but was controversially left out.

However, it is understood that she could still enter the show at a later date.
