Yinrun is a customer support agent from Shanghai, China. After moving to the UK, she is ready to take on the challenge that is Big Brother.

She applied for the series because "it is such a fun game show" and is ready to take on another "adventure".

When asked what she was most looking forward to on Big Brother, Yinrun said: "I'm most excited about being surrounded by so many people from different walks of life. I don't think I will ever live in a house again with so many different kinds of people. I'm from China and I think it will help me be more immersed in British culture."

Yinrun has dreams to move to a farm and if she wins Big Brother, she will do just that.

"I will live on a farm and have some chickens, grow my organic vegetables and have a puppy to run around. And I’ll have eggs from the chicken, it will be so wholesome. This is my dream," she told ITV ahead of her entrance into the Big Brother house.

Why was Yinrun in Big Brother jail?

Big Brother fans were livid when Yinrun was sent to jail following a rule break.

The 25-year-old broke the rules by speaking to Henry about how she planned to approach nominations, which led to her nomination choices being revoked.

As a result of her rule break, Dylan, Hallie and Trish are the next housemates who will face the public vote.

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