‘Whilst I understand that people are going off what you (as a viewer) are shown just remember it is a show for your entertainment. 

‘By no means do you have to like all of us and I understand that, but when it reaches a point that someone is targeted and personally attacked based on their sexuality it’s quite a disgusting comment on society.’

She went on:  ‘Obviously that’s only a minority of people, but some comments I see are disgraceful along with the messages Jessie is receiving weeks after her eviction.

‘I went on this show proud of the diversity and minority groups represented’. 

Alongside the post, Tilly shared a photo of herself and Jess giggling during a challenge on the show.  

Earlier this month, Jess Trend broke down in tears after being evicted from the Big Brother house.

The AFLW player from Melbourne failed to plead her case to her fellow housemates and ended up with the most votes.

Jess was sent home after receiving more votes than Sarah Jane Adams, 66.

She broke down in tears as she hugged all the housemates goodbye.

After leaving the house, she told the cameras: ‘That’s not how I wanted to end. Not even close. I honestly thought I would be saved, I don’t know where the vote went.’
