‘OMG as annoying and dramatic as this redhead girl is, it’s so true what she’s saying about being ranga and different,’ one viewer tweeted.
‘They never put a ginger on the show then they chose this one?’ another person said. ‘Ginger lives matter,’ another commented.
‘She’s claiming the only woman of colour on the show is being racist to her because of the colour of her hair!’ one person wrote.

During Wednesday night’s premiere, Zoe-Clare was sent into a rage after Areeba Emmanuel, 25, interrupted her discussion with Locky.
‘To me, it’s disrespectful. If she wants to act the child, that’s fine,’ she told producers.
She continued:’I’m the only redhead in the whole entire house… The only colours are blonde or brunette, and then there’s me. I think that’s exactly why Areeba is targeting me. It’s the red hair. It’s just…it’s not appropriate.’
‘What’s wrong with a ranga? Yeah. Do you want me to dye my hair every 10 seconds because you don’t like my colour? I’m so sorry, but this is natural, guys. It’s not going anywhere.’

Zoe-Clare also became ill and was forced to skip the ceremony, prompting fans to share their own theories why she wasn’t in attendance.
‘Zoe-Clare went to Priceline to get a bottle of hair dye instead of going to the rose ceremony,’ one fan joked.
