Big Brother engulfed in 'race row' as viewers claim Trish was 'targeted' after Olivia's 'sexism' snipe | The Sun
BIG Brother has been engulfed in a fresh "race row" after Trish was blamed for something Olivia said first.
Viewers claimed Trish was "targeted" over Olivia after the Scottish housemate accused Chanelle of being "anti-feminist" in a sexism snipe.
The housemates were divided into two teams and had to compete against each other to win the luxury shopping budget.
While dressed in ant costumes, each team elected a 'Queen Ant' – and they picked Noky and Chanelle.
But when Chanelle picked just men to take part in a strength challenge, Olivia accused her of being sexist with Trish agreeing and repeating the comments.
However, Trish was later pulled aside and told Chanelle was upset by her comments.

The lad, who has lived in Manchester since he was nine told The Sun he worries for the remaining non-white housemates Noky, Trish and Dylan.
He said: “It’s the most diverse that the show has ever been, and there are so many characters in there, I was just amazed at the backgrounds, different genders and races.
“But myself and Noky had moments where we said to each other, ‘If one of us go, it’s going to be tough on the other [non-white housemates] Trish and Dylan.
“In Thailand, I probably would’ve won the show, but because we’re in England, I have to take it as it is.
