Housemates cuffed together in Celeb BB launch twist
The Celebrity Big Brother 2014 housemates will be handcuffed to their potential enemies in the series launch twist, it has been revealed.
According to the Daily Star, bosses have split the new line-up in to pairs ahead of tonight’s live show, and each duo will be bound together by handcuffs before they enter the house.
However, the pairings have been deliberately picked to ’cause chaos’, with each celeb matched to one that they could end up clashing with. Two single housemates will also be cuffed together in the hope that they’ll ignite a romance.
A Big Brother insider told the newspaper: “It will encourage intimacy and risk.
“Every pairing is deliberate. There will be two people handcuffed together who we know will hate each other instantly. Another pairing could be this year’s big romance and others will be linked who we know will have a right laugh together.
“It’s mean, but it’s going to cause mayhem in the house from the minute the door is locked.”
The Star added that there will be a second twist involving one team being set a challenge that could have ‘massive implications’ on the entire group for the rest of the series, and also impact the first eviction, which is scheduled to take place next Wednesday.
“The launch night twist usually has implications for the first eviction,” continued the source. “But what else will it involve and how long will they all be handcuffed for?”
Big Brother’s Bit On The Side presenter Rylan Clark previously teased that the launch twist would involve housemates forming ‘false friendships’.
It’s being promoted with new press shots of Rylan and Emma Willis, which you can see here:
