Celebrity Big Brother has assured fans the show is "not scripted" after a rather bizarre scene baffled fans during the live feed…

The footage aired live from the house on Thursday night (25 August) showing the housemates in high spirits as they got into bed, wishing each other a good night's sleep. The lights then went off, before almost immediately flicking back on again, showing Ricky Norwood jumping out of bed and congratulating everyone on a "good take."

Of course, that led some viewers to question if the scene had been 'staged' and 'scripted'.

But a rep for CBB has told Reveal: "Footage shown on the live feed involved Big Brother alerting housemates of a long final day ahead. The show is entirely authentic and the housemates are not scripted."

It was quite odd as some of the housemates were totally ready for bed, like Marnie, while others, like Renee and Aubrey, still had a full face of make-up on when they got back up.

So weird!

After the lights came on, some housemates happily bounced out of bed, but a stern Big Brother immediately warned them the final day will be a long one. "It will be a really big day for you. It will start quite early and end late at night," said BB, advising housemates to get their teeth done, wash up, have a final cigarette and then call it a night.

The final airs tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.

Stephen Bear, Marnie Simpson, Renee Graziano, Aubrey O'Day, Frankie Grande and Ricky Norwood will be battling it out to be crowned the winner - we can't wait!
