The love drama inside the Celebrity Big Brother house took 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, but then had a very public falling out after Lee cooled their relationship and kissed fellow housemate Jasmine Waltz.
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.
