The ultimate social experiment, Big Brother, made a splash when it returned to screens after a five year hiatus, with viewers witnessing 16 new contestants enter the iconic house.


Now there are 15 contestants remaining and two of them have been breaking the rules!

Olivia and Hallie found themselves in hot water with the all-seeing Big Brother when they wrote to each other in code the names of the housemates they nominated, which is a major rule break. The news was revealed to their fellow housemates and as a result they were made to sit outside in the garden.

Olivia has been the talk of X, formerly known as Twitter, with viewers beside themselves with laughter over her salmon debacle, Scottish jingles and now her brief stint in Big Brother jail.

As Olivia continues her stay in the Big Brother house for another week, read on for everything you need to know about the Glaswegian dancer.

Olivia grew up watching Big Brother and has always said if the show ever returned, she'd want to do it.

The dancer described herself as a "social being" and is excited to take part in a "totally surreal experience".

The 23-year-old described herself as "the type of person who is up for anything" and "the life and soul of the party".

Talking to ITV ahead of entering the house, she said: "I'm that friend who people invite to things because at least I'll be fun. They know that they're guaranteed a good night if I'm there."

Is Olivia on Instagram?

Yes! Olivia does have an Instagram page, but like all of the other contestants it has been set to private while she takes part on the show.

Olivia's Instagram handle is @_olivia.young_, but she won't be accepting requests any time soon.

As per ITV's Duty of Care protocols, Olivia's Instagram will remain dormant over the course of her time in the Big Brother house, much like the Love Island contestants.

What has Olivia been like in the Big Brother house?

Olivia may be in a spot of drama on tonight's (Friday 13th October) Big Brother.

Once the housemates find out Farida and Kerry are up for eviction, Farida says the "youngsters stuck together and they got out the eldest people".

As Olivia joins the conversation, Farida tells her not to laugh, to which Olivia said: "I'm not laughing at that. You're making it out as if we've all grouped against you. That's not what happened. I can't be a**ed with that. F***ing hell."

Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
