Her reaction to Tom’s eviction interview has been dubbed “iconic” by Big Brother Late and Live viewers.
Jordan, Jenkin, and Tom were ‘evicted’ earlier this week after severe face-to-face nominations. However, unknown to the main house, they were placed in a spare room where they could surreptitiously observe their previous housemates. They basically took on our identities for 48 hours.
After two days in limbo, there was a true eviction with a Western-style showdown theme – the ITV reality programme can’t resist a theme!
The three ‘outlaws’ were placed in cages in the garden, and the rest of the house found out what was going on. Following a brief discussion, the results of the most recent public vote were presented.
Jenkin and Tom were finally ousted, allowing Jordan to return to the home and reconnect with everyone.
Following his expulsion, Tom, 21, conducted an exit interview with broadcaster AJ Odudu.
The talk usually concludes with the housemates seeing a montage of footage that highlight their time in the house, and Tom’s turn in the hot seat was no exception.
AJ, 35, introduced the segment by announcing: ‘So Tom, honestly, you have been a great housemate so let’s take a look at some of your best bits.’
However, one audience member who was seated behind Tom and therefore in his shot appeared to disagree. She turned to face her seatmate and appeared to ask, ‘What bits?’
Eagle-eyed fans caught the moment and responded humorously to the two-word jab.
‘“Which bits???” I’m screaming,’ wrote one viewer on X, formerly Twitter, alongside the clip, which has now been viewed over 380k times.

Of course, the audience member may not have understood AJ and asked for clarification on what parts were broadcast, or we could have lipread improperly, but social media is still ablaze with appreciation for this mysterious woman.
One account proclaimed: ‘Let her win Big Brother 2023 NOW.’
‘Tom even getting upstaged in his own eviction interview is just the most poetic thing. Our neon queen showing more personality in six seconds than him in six weeks,’ typed another.
One person remarked: ‘She is us, we are her’ indicating she represents the masses.
The woman also earned the nickname ‘neon green icon’ by another social media user due to her outfit.

Neon Green Icon: which bits?

Elsewhere in the interview, Tom admitted to ‘cruising through’ the process, arguing he hadn’t been particularly ‘problematic’.
‘I just went there for a good time,’ he said.
After being called out for ‘coasting’ by AJ, Tom was also questioned about his recent statements about Yinrun and how upset he was when she selected him in face-to-face nominations.
‘Why do you think you have such a strong reaction to Yinrun?’, AJ said, referring to how Tom ripped into her for crying and refused to accept her apology or console her.
‘We had our mission to get someone in the Diary Room and I didn’t really get much more clarity, so we did feel a bit harsh because we found out she is genuinely just a really sweet soul.’
‘But you had that clarity from her initially, because she told you to your face!’, declared AJ. ‘And then you wanted to get her back in the Diary Room to do it all again.’
Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
