The love drama inside the Celebrity Big Brother house has taken a new turn after Blue singer Lee Ryan and glamour model Casey Batchelor were sent to a secret bolt hole together in a "fake eviction".
The pair, who entered the house handcuffed to each other, had enjoyed a brief romance, kissing and cuddling each other under the covers of the bed they shared.
But they had a very public falling out after Lee cooled their relationship and set his sights on fellow housemate Jasmine Waltz, who he passionately kissed in tonight's episode.
Now Lee and Casey will spend 24 hours a day together in a secret annexe to the house where they can spy on their unsuspecting fellow contestants.
The couple had no idea of the "secret mission" that awaited them, and Lee was clearly nervous that his love triangle had damaged his popularity.
Stepping out of the house to loud boos and chants of "get Lee out", the pop star looked nervous and cringed as he greeted the public.
Despite being dubbed a "lothario", it was revealed that the 30 year-old had been left in "floods of tears" after the full extent of his romancing was revealed.
Host Emma Willis told viewers: "Jasmine has told Casey that she has kissed Lee. Lee is not very happy and has been in floods of tears, so to say the atmosphere is tense in there is an understatement."
Viewers had earlier seen things heat up in the house after Casey confronted Lee over why he was ignoring her and flirting with Jasmine.
The glamour model said she felt she had been "reeled in" by Lee, who said he wanted to make a go of their relationship but quickly moved on to the US actress.
She went to the diary room where she sobbed as she said: "I just feel a bit mugged off. I don't want to cry on TV, it's embarrassing.
"I just feel like an idiot. I don't want to cry.
"Obvously, me and Lee were really close and handcuffed together, but I didn't expect anything. I just feel like he reeled me in and mugged me off and is now making me out to be a crazy psycho.
"I've not done anything wrong. He is doing exactly the same thing he did with me to someone else when he was telling me the other day he really likes me and wants to see how it goes in the outside world."
But the two celebrities patched things up after having a heart to heart in the living room.
Casey told Lee she had been left angry after he flirted with Jasmine "in front of my face" after he had kissed and cuddled her.
The Blue singer said: "I just don't want a relationship with her or you" and that he had been left "embarrassed" after Casey's angry confrontation.
However, the singer was soon back to flirting with Jasmine and shared a passionate kiss with her in the kitchen.
The actress whispered to him "Don't do this out here", but the pop star replied "I don't care anymore".
In their secret bolt hole, Lee and Casey will watch their fellow housemates' every move, control the house and make mischief.
And on Friday they will return to the main house to deliver a bombshell.
