ITV embroiled in Big Brother ‘fix’ storm as show accused of ‘rigging’ nominations to save trans housemate


share close

ITV viewers have claimed Big Brother bosses have “fixed” the show in order to prevent 18-year-old housemate Hallie from being evicted.

Hallie, who openly came out as trans to her castmates within the second day of being in the house, has become a divisive figure among fans due to her outbursts and not one, but two rule breaks.

On Wednesday, Hallie was unveiled as one of three housemates to face the public vote ahead of Friday’s eviction alongside Dylan and Trish.

However, Big Brother dropped the bombshell that Yinrun had broken the rules regarding the discussion of nominations and as a punishment, she had her nominations for Hallie and Kerry revoked.

Before Big Brother made this call, the nominations lodged by housemates meant it would’ve been just Hallie and Trish up for nomination – Hallie was tied with Dylan on four votes once bosses removed Yinrun’s nominations.

Yinrun was also subject to being imprisoned in the Big Brother “jail” for a number of hours before she could return to mingle with her fellow housemates.

The decision to remove Yinrun’s nominations and its subsequent effect on the nominated housemates has sparked controversy among viewers.

Big Brother fans have accused bosses of ‘fixing’ the nominations in Hallie’s favour


A number have voiced the opinion that what Yinrun said didn’t warrant punishment at all, let alone one that would’ve altered the outcome of the nominations.

Yinrun’s rule break occurred after she said in a conversation with Henry: “I don’t know if this was talking about nominations.”

“I don’t think you should say if you’re unsure,” replied Henry to which Yinrun added: “I think I will say it. My vote has two meanings. One is how I feel. The other is how I can change other’s fate.

“If I go for my emotion it may change the fate of the people I want to save. Which should I go for?” she asked but Henry declined to engage in the conversation.

Given the fact Yinrun didn’t name any names specifically, ITV viewers have claimed bosses used the conversation to manipulate the outcome so Hallie didn’t go head to head with Trish in the public vote.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, one viewer fumed at the bombshell: “Big Brother revoking Yinrun’s votes has the typical game fixing all over it. Instead of Trish Vs Hallie. It’s now Trish Vs Hallie Vs Dylan – knowing full well the votes will be split between Hallie and Dylan meaning Trish will be out #bbuk.”

A second also argued: “#BBUK So Hallie breaks rules twice, gets jail and holds up stupid board, Yinrun does it once gets jail and her first vote nomination doesn’t count which was for Hallie, I’m thinking BB’s a fix and trying to get Hallie to final.”

Another claimed Hallie was receiving preferential treatment as they tweeted: “If anyone is fixing the evictions it’s BB, using a lame excuse to get Dylan up for the vote so Hallie can stay, they know Hallie has no chance against Trish, that’s why they used Yinrun as a scapegoat #BBLL #BBUK.”

A fourth echoed: “Looking likely Dylan’s being evicted Friday, rigged asf show. The exact reason Yinrun’s nominations were void. To save the producers’ favourite Hallie. Show’s so boring and predictable. Where’re these twists we were promised @ITV.”

While the outrage continued with a fifth viewer: “#BBUK NAH! I’m sorry but Hallie broke the rules twice in 2 days and got put in jail for like 2 hours and wore a stupid s*****y sign and Yinrun does it and they take her nominations away and punish her by making it her fault who’s up. I’m sorry but that’s a fix!”
