If you tune in to the next episode of The 1% Club, you’ll see a familiar face among the contestants.

This Saturday, 25th May, the final episode of the current series airs on ITV1, and one of the stars of Big Brother will be hoping to win big.

News that former Big Brother contestant Yinrun Huang will be one of the 100 competitors attempting to take home the prize money of up to £100,000 was shared on The 1% Club’s X page today (20th May).

Alongside an image of the BB housemate taking part in the popular quiz show, the post read: “This Saturday will be the last episode of this current series. The episode was filmed quite a while ago. Anyone recognise one of the contestants playing here before she made her other TV appearance? We absolutely loved having her on the show – she was great fun!”

Yinrun finished in fourth place in the 2023 season of Big Brother, behind Henry Southan, Olivia Young and eventual winner Jordan Sangha.

With plenty of fans excitedly replying to The 1% Club’s X post, it is clear that Yinrun remains a fan favourite. When the customer support agent spoke exclusively to last year about her popularity upon leaving the Big Brother house, she told us: “It is very overwhelming.”

She added: “I got a lot of love and support that I never expected I would have.”

Hosted by Lee Mack, The 1% Club sees 100 players face increasingly tricky questions based on logic and common sense rather than general knowledge. Each question is given a percentage rating, based on what percentage of the population answered it correctly. Those left still in the competition at the end have a shot at winning up to £100,000 by answering the 1% question correctly. 

The episode which aired on Saturday night (18th May) saw viewers shocked when a whopping 32 contestants were knocked out by the 40% question.

See if you can get it right here.

The final episode of this series of The 1% Club airs on ITV1 and ITVX on Saturday 25th May at 8:55pm.
