The last ever series of Big Brother hasn't got off to the best of starts, 19-year-old housemate Ellis Hillon was removed from the house for 'inappropriate tweets', viewers complained to Channel 5 that the show was on too late and viewing figures are seriously struggling.

However, despite the hiccups, the Big Brother super fans who are tuning in every night have spotted a striking similarity between Spiritual Advisor Anamelia Silva and pop star Jessie J. Viewers of the show have taken to Twitter to express their shock at just how similar Anamelia looks to the 'Domino' singer...

They look so alike! 😱

In other Big Brother news, after being kicked out of the house for sending 'inappropriate tweets' when she was 15, Ellis Hillon has now apologised, admitting she's not a 'racist'.

Releasing a statement, Ellis said, "I want to stress how sorry I am about any offence and upset that was caused due to what I have said on social media.

"I understand that I was totally in the wrong and I should never have said such horrible things. All the comments were from my teenage years and I am deeply ashamed of them. I didn’t stop to think how they could be so hurtful at the time." Read here full statement here.

Meanwhile, as the civilian series of Big Brother continues, with the first eviction looming tomorrow night (Friday 21st September), bosses announced last week that the current series will be the last one EVER.

The statement, released by production company Endemol Shine UK, read, "We are incredibly proud of Big Brother which has consistently been the highest rated show for Channel 5 over the past seven years, with the latest series of Celebrity Big Brother being the channel’s highest rating show of the year, growing its’ audience year on year by 17% and tripling the channel’s slot average for 16-14s.

"This performance is credit to the fantastic production team, plus Emma, Rylan, Marcus and the many housemates over the years who have delivered so many unmissable series."

Despite this, there has now been talk that ITV could buy the production company, meaning Big Brother could live on after all. Accords to new reports by The Times, ITV are one of several buyers interested in buying production company, Endemol Shine, which is reportedly worth around £3 billion.

We hope so! 🙏
