Big Brother contestants Charlie Doherty and Jason Burrill used to date.

After last night's launch show we had expected a romantic connection between some of the main housemates and The Others, and that turns out to be true for The Others' Charlie and main housemate Jason.

While viewing the VTs of the main housemates, Charlie shouts out: "Oh my god! Oh no! It's my ex boyfriend."

She then breaks down in tears, saying she had no idea he was also in Big Brother and that she still loves him. It was Jason who ended their relationship.

After hearing this, The Others wonder if they should target Jason... Andrew Tate tells Charlie this could be her chance to get revenge on Jason for ditching her.

But will she?!

We don't know yet why Charlie, 31, and Jason, 45, split, but in her pre-launch night interview, dancer Charlie - who is single - confessed to being "a bit of a serial cheat and has been unfaithful in the majority of her past relationships."

Property developer, salon owner and stunt double Jason, meanwhile, has said he's currently single and not against finding love in the house. Could he find it with ex Charlie? Or will it all end in tears?

This year's Big Brother has a twist: two houses.

Twelve housemates entered the main house, while six Others are living in a secret house. They aren't full housemates yet: to gain access to the house, they have to target the main housemates in a bid to steal their places.

Big Brother continues 10pm on Channel 5
