The best and worst Celebrity Big Brother ROMANCES

This lot found 'love' in the Big Brother house


by Alex Ross |

Hoorah, Big Brother is back on our screens five years after it was cancelled by Channel 5.

While it'll be a civilian series that's well known for making iconic reality TV stars - such as Charley Uchea, Nikki Grahame and Alison Hammond, we thought we'd look back at Celebrity Big Brother.

Let's be honest, the celeb version is perhaps best known for some of its celeb romances, from the unexpected (Gogglebox’s George Gilbey and Edele Lynch of B*Witched fame, we’re looking at you) to the dramatic AF (Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell), so let’s take a look back at some of the most memorable CBB couplings of all time....

CHECK OUT the best and worst Celebrity Big Brother romances...

Ordinary Boys singer Preston immediately fell for 'fake celebrity' Chantelle Houghton in 2006. Just three months after leaving the CBB house, the pair announced their engagement, with the wedding taking place the following August. However, in June 2007 (less than a year later) Chantelle and Preson got a divorce, but the pair have remained friends!

Nobody saw a romance between former Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding and The Bachelorette's Chad Johnson coming in 2017. But after Chad and Sarah racked up a cute friendship, things soon turned into a romance in the house, with the pair getting cosy on a number of occasions. They remained together for a number of weeks after the show ended, but with Chad living in America and Sarah in the UK, things didn't work out.

Stephen Bear and Chloe Khan

Despite dating Lillie Lexie Greg at the time, Stephen Bear didn't let that stop him getting cosy with Chloe Khan during the 2016 series, with their fellow housemates complaining at their raunchy behaviour. Although Lillie entered the house to confront Bear, that didn't stop Chloe waiting for him when he left the house as champion. Despite their whirlwind romance, things soon ended between the pair.

Another CBB romance NOBODY saw coming was between Kerry Katona and former Waterloo Road star Lucien Laviscount in 2011. Kerry and Lucien seemed very loved-up in the house, sharing a number of cuddles and kisses, but things didn't work out due to their 11-year age difference on the outside world.

Basshunter and Katia Ivanova

Katia Ivanova actually had a boyfriend on the outside, but her head was turned when she met Basshunter, real name Jonas Erik Altberg. Despite the pair enjoying some time together in the house, Katia ended things on the show, calling the DJ 'too clingy'.

Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson and TOWIE's Lewis Bloor had an instant connection when they appeared on the 2016 series of CBB. Things seemed to be going well for the couple when they left the house, with the pair even moving in together. But it all ended in tears when it was revealed that Lewis had cheated on Marnie twice. Marnie went on to date X Factor star Casey Johnson and they've since gotten engaged and had two children.

Despite Stephanie and Jeremy's relationship taking up more or less the whole series in 2016, TOWIE's Megan McKenna and Geordie Shore's Scotty T also got VERY cosy. The reality pair enjoyed a number of steamy kisses in the house, but things didn't go to plan on the outside, with Scotty T blaming distance as the reason for their split.

The 2014 series of CBB brought with it one of the cringiest love-triangles to date, between Blue singer Lee Ryan, Jasmine Waltz and Casey Bachelor. Lee started off by getting to know Casey, before declaring his 'love' for Jasmine. But when the America model was evicted, Lee jumped back into bed with Casey (leaving viewers fuming).CBB bosses then created MASSIVE drama when they put Jasmine back into the house, resulting in a huge argument between the pair. Despite this, Lee and Jasmine started a relationship and even appeared on the front of a magazine, but things didn't last long when Jasmine accused him of 'cheating'.

Edele Lynch and George Gilbey
