Big Brother participants made their first appearance on Sunday night during an explosive opening show, but one housemate has since admitted that they held back their ‘true’ self.
Hallie, 18, was the programme’s youngest participant and said she was a “bit of a diva” before appearing on the show.
The adolescent, who made a big impression on night one, is expected to disclose a crucial aspect of herself on the second episode of the highly anticipated remake on Monday night.
The roommates were instructed to assemble around the dining table before the big occasion to discuss their living circumstances.
During that time, Hallie informed the group that she needed to address an issue and explained why she felt she wasn’t being herself at first.
She revealed: ‘Hey guys, I just have something to say. Yesterday I feel like I wasn’t being 100% authentic in myself.
‘I thought I’d let everyone know I’m trans, if you didn’t know already. I just thought I’d make that loud and clear. I’m a trans woman if you didn’t know.’
The burgeoning reality star’s fellow roommates greeted her announcement with wide arms, and Chanelle added, ‘Good for you. That takes a lot of guts’.
Dylan, 39, followed the 29-year-old dental therapist’s kind words with: ‘This is a moment. I like it’.
Relieved, Hallie admitted, ‘I don’t know why I was nervous’, before 50-year-old Farida confirmed to her, ‘You don’t need to be nervous’.
Mum Trish, 33, summed up the group’s feelings when she said, ‘We’ve got you,’ before the table moved on to other home matters.
Prior to her television debut, the London youth worker characterised herself as a “girl’s girl.”
She said: ‘I speak my mind but I’m also a very lovely person. I’m a girl’s girl, for sure. I’m honest, fun and, yeah, just brilliant.’
Elsewhere, emotions rose as Olivia and Farida nearly clashed over midday food sharing.
Olivia, a 23-year-old Glaswegian dancer, was having her lunch in the kitchen when the makeup artist requested for a little of her salmon.
‘Can I have a little taste of salmon? I’m much more of a fish person than a chicken person,’ Farida asked before diving in for a bite.
Olivia walked into the garden after the interaction, looking dissatisfied with the prospect of sharing her dish.
The dancer opened up to her fellow housemates about the ordeal 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.’
She added: ‘I was a bit like, “I don’t know how I feel about this.”’
Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
