CBB Day 3: Gemma gives Megan a pep talk on Scotty

Last night, fans were convinced Megan had managed to sneak her phone into the house, after she was seen holding something to resemble a mobile.

While Christopher was consulting John about how to tell Tiffany Pollard nobody wanted to speak to her, following *that* seriously awkward mix up over David Bowie's death (she had thought Angie had said David Gest), eagle-eyed viewers noticed what looked to be a phone in Megan's hands.

One CBB fan shared a video to Twitter of the footage, tweeting alongside it: "Megan on her phone there? #CBB2016." While others were quick to hit out at CBB.

Fans are told that housemates are not allowed any contact with the outside world while living in the house. This means they are forbidden to take in any phones, iPads, tablets, music devices that could allow them to do so.

Addressing the latest speculation, Channel 5 has insisted this is still the case.

Megan was, in fact, holding a phone case (no phone included). Rumours she had a phone with her follow similar claims that Jonathan had smuggled his mobile into the house too.

At the time, show bosses insisted he had brought in just a phone case, and now, they have revealed Megan was seen holding the same one.

A rep for CBB told The Mirror: "This is actually a phone case which Jonathan took into the house as a luxury item."

Just to make things clear, those controlling Megan's Twitter account while she is in the house made sure to tweet: "FYI for all those saying Megan has her phone in the house... She does not!! This is Team Megan tweeting on her behalf :)."

Claims Megan has been using her phone on the show come after the Ex On The Beach favourite had a bit of a meltdown.

It was revealed Megan had been struggling with the lack of food in the house and when faced with eating mashed potato, it all got a little too much.
