The ex-TOWIE star greeted Love Island's Gabby Allen awkwardly following claims that they had an affair.

Celebrity Big Brother kicked off again last night and two celebrities who have found themselves stuck in the CBB house together for the next month are ex-The Only Way Is Essex star Dan Osborne and Love Island 2017's Gabby Allen.

The two were previously linked when it was rumoured the pair had an affair while working away at a boot camp in Marbella and the claims are said to be the reason Dan and his pregnant (at the time) wife, Jaqueline Jossa, split up.

She saw Dan and said 'Hello love!' followed by awkwardly leaning in for a kiss on the cheek and a hug before swiftly moving on to introduce herself to the other housemates.

Fans at home were left squirming...

However fans couldn't help but wonder about Dan's wife Jacqueline left at home with their newborn baby - she gave birth to their second child, a daughter, in June. 

Many commented that they thought it was cruel for Celebrity Big Brother bosses to put Dan and Gabby in together considering the circumstances.
