This series of Celebrity Big Brother is proving to be pretty epic. There’s been bust-ups, claims of a fixing scandal and Courtney Act just being all-round fabulous and a voice of reason in a frankly mad house.

There could also be a surprising romance on the cards as viewers couldn’t help but notice Andrew Brady and Ann Widdecombe’s shameless flirting on last night’s episode.

ICYMI, Friday night’s show saw the arrival of eight new male celebs (check out the full line-up below) and a twist giving the women all the power in the house. The men, therefore, are required to carry out all the house hold chores.

Courtney Act

RuPaul's Drag Race star and BFF of Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall, Courtney Act (real name Shane Jenek), will also be joining this year's celeb line-up.

On last night’s show, Andrew found himself having to make Ann’s bed while the former politician watched on. Seemingly in admiration.

At one point, we got all hot under the collar when Andrew said he’d ‘tackle’ Ann to the ground if she tried to help.

Twitter seemed to pick up on the sexual tension, too.

Even Rylan’s on board (If Ashley James doesn’t steal Andrew’s affections)

To be fair, Andrew is a bit of a mega fitlord.

In other CBB news, some fans think the show’s fixed as Malika Haqq seemed to be very aware that her BFF Khloe Kardashian had been tweeting about her in the outside world.

During a conversation with fellow American, Ginuwine, Malika seemed to know that her best friend Khloe Kardashian had been asking her followers how she could watch the show.
