Because of this, Trish wasn’t invited onto the spin-off show – but viewers were quick to criticize host Will Best for not mentioning the scandal.

One wrote on social media: “Aren’t they going to deal with the Trish situation?”

Another said: “Davina [McCall] and Emma [Willis] would have looked dead on camera and commented on the Trish situation to the home audience.

“I find it strange that @ITV is hiding the issue under the carpet.”

And someone else added: “The panel/audience is trying not to mention the Trish tweets.”

The shocking news was published in 2012 and includes references to Asians and lesbians, as well as vile Hitler tweets which The Sun refuses to repeat.

In a statement, she later said: “I am aware that some very concerning old tweets of mine have resurfaced and I would like to sincerely apologize for the harmful stereotypes I have perpetuated and the pain I have caused to the marginalized communities mentioned.” and groups of people.” .

“There is no excuse for the ignorance I have displayed and I am deeply disappointed, ashamed and embarrassed that I once made such comments.”

Fans have since turned against the former housemate after spotting the offensive tweets – despite previously branding her a “national treasure”.

One fan wrote: “I’m so sad reading all of these tweets from Trish over the last few years.”

“I was sad she got kicked out yesterday, but in hindsight I’m honestly glad she didn’t win.”

Another fan wrote: “In just one day, Trish went from being the nation’s sweetheart, being chanted to victory, to being kicked out 30 seconds later, becoming a Twitter icon, then being canceled so hard she had to deactivate her.” .”
