Big Brother fans rush to support Jenkin as they beg ITV to give him a break10/10/2023
Fans of Big Brother have shared their concerns for Jenkin Edwards as he appeared to be struggling on the ITV show.
The 25-year barman from Bridgend made his debut on the brand new series on Sunday night (October 8), becoming the first contestant to enter the famous house. But things took an unexpected turn for Jenkin, when Big Brother organised a twisted game of pass the parcel.
In the game, the contestant who received the parcel when the music stopped playing would have to answer a question about their fellow housemate. But unbeknownst to them, this later led to dire consequences.

During the game, Jenkin voted Olivia as the most difficult housemate to live with which resulted in her facing eviction. But later, Kerry voted Jenkin as the person with the worst fashion sense which led to his suitcase being blown up, after Big Brother had already prohibited him from using hot water for 24 hours.
Despite the tough beginning, Olivia later got the chance to win immunity from the next public vote. However fans were baffled that Jenkin wasn't given a similar opportunity.
Clearly struggling with his ordeal, Jenkin expressed that he felt "overwhelmed" and didn't feel like himself. Seeing how downcast he had become, fans headed over to X, formerly known as Twitter, to beg Big Brother to give Jenkin a break.
One social media user wrote: "Really feeling for Jenkin give the lad a break instead of breaking him. It’s not nice too early to make someone feel isolated."
Another viewer echoed: "Give Jenkin a break omg??? I’d be miserable too." A third fan wrote: "Why does it feel like Jenkin has had the worst first 24hrs probably in BB history."
While a fourth viewer said: "HOW is jenkin being told 'he can have a chat whenever' and Olivia cries and gets her punishment gone. I LOVE HIM. JUSTICE FOR JENKIN."
Despite this, some viewers did see the ligther side to the situation, with one viewer writing: "Sorry but I think it's absolutely hilarious that Jenkin has been in the BB house for three minutes and has already lost his suitcase, has to have cold showers and make breakfast in bed. And he just accidentally nominated someone for eviction."
Big Brother continues nightly at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX
