Big Brother embroiled in racism row after Olivias horrid comments
Big Brother: Jenkin gets upset over ‘not fitting in’
Big Brother returned to screens recently and has already been involved in a racism row as viewers slammed Olivia for “racist” comments she made towards housemate Yinrun.
During last night’s show, Olivia was trying to teach some of her housemates a highland song called Donald’s Trousers.
A lot of them struggled to understand what she was saying due to her strong accent, which left Kerry to note: “I will be honest with you, I don’t recognise one word that you said.”
Hallie agreed and added: “No same, all I got was Donald’s trousers!” which left Olivia to turn and point to Yinrun.
She remarked: “If you didn’t understand me, she’s going to have no clue what the f*** I just said.”

Viewers of the highly anticipated show were left furious with her comments and took to their X, formerly known as Twitter, accounts.
@nuttyace penned: “Okay – we’re going to let that racism from Olivia slide.
@DisneyDizzz said: “Did Olivia REALLY just say if you can’t understand me she definitely won’t (then proceed to point at Yinrun!)
“My f***ing jaw is still open ! Horrid girl! #racism #BigBrotherUK #getoliviaout.” (sic)

Earlier in the show, Olivia also found an issue with Farida when she asked to try some of her lunch, before fuming to her fellow housemates.
As Olivia was cooking in the kitchen she asked Farida if she wanted any as she made enough for a second portion.
Farida declined but as Olivia plated up her food, Farida asked: “Can I have a little taste of salmon? I’m much more of a fish person than a chicken person.”
Furious at the interaction, she went outside to vent and explained: “I was eating my salmon and my corn and Farida was like, ‘Can I have some of your corn?’
“And I was like, ‘Yeah, go for it.’ Then she started eating my salmon, my actual lunch. She had a spoon and was eating off my plate.
“I was a bit like, ‘I don’t know how I feel about this’.”
Big Brother airs weeknights and Sunday from 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
