DISGRACED Big Brother star Trish Balusa has had an emotional reunion with her young son after being evicted from the house.
The eliminated reality star had been a fan favourite until historic racist and homophobic tweets emerged following her exit.
The shocking Twitter posts from 2012 led to Trish being banned from Big Brother spin-off show Late and Live.
She was comforted by her son as she returned home, receiving a big hug and kisses.
Sharing the moment on Instagram, Trish wrote: "When your son missed you too much.
"Reunited at last I couldn't even take a clear picture because of the constant kisses."

After her offensive tweets surfaced over the weekend, the 33-year-old deleted her X account, formerly known as Twitter, before setting up a new one to issue a statement to fans.
She apologised to fans saying there were "no excuses" for her comments.
Trish wrote: "I'm aware that some very concerning old tweets of mine have resurfaced and I would like to sincerely apologise for the harmful stereotypes I perpetuated and the pain I have cause to the marginalised communities and groups of people mentioned.
"There are no excuses for the ignorance that I showed and I am deeply disappointed, embarrassed and ashamed that I once made such comments.

"I have come a very long way since by educating myself and being educated by others on the impact and harm these views cause.
"It is part of the reason why I am so passionate about standing up for others and holding myself to a high standard of responsibility and accountability for my actions.
"I appreciate the support you've all given me on the show and I understand you feel disappointed.
"I know apologies can seem convenient in these circumstances but I mean it from the bottom of my heart; I am truly sorry.
"I hope it is possible for you to offer me grace and believe that people can change.
"I am committed to being the person I am now, the person you have known me as – someone who speaks up, stands for what they believe in and is always open to growth and accountability. Love Trish."
Trish is being supported in line with Big Brother's welfare protocols.
A spokesperson for Big Brother told The Sun: “This weekend, we have been made aware of concerning historical tweets.
"We are currently looking into why they were not identified by the independent supplier we engage to review the digital footprint of potential Housemates as part of our pre-checks.”
Fans were furious to discover the offensive posts from 2012 about gay and Asian people.
There are also vile Hitler tweets sent by Trish circulating online, all of which The Sun does not wish to repeat.
The Sun reported calls for Trish to be "cancelled" – having been hailed as a "national icon" by some fans following her appearance on Big Brother.
Viewers were furious when she was evicted on Friday night – moments after crowds chanted "Trish for the win".
They have since turned on the former housemate after discovering the offensive tweets.
One fan wrote: "I am so saddened to read all these tweets from Trish over the past few years.
