Celebrity Big Brother 2014 presenters - Emma Willis poses with handcuffs for 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:

Stars that have been linked to the new series include Apprentice contestant Luisa Zissman, Made In Chelsea’s Ollie Locke, boxer Evander Holyfield, socialite Nancy Dell’Olio, N-Dubz rapper Dappy.

The Only Way Is Essex’s Sam Faiers, Blue singer Lee Ryan and Bollywood actress and Bigg Boss finalist Tanishaa Mukherji are also rumoured to be taking part.

Celebrity Big Brother 2014 begins tonight at 9.00pm on Channel 5.

    I laughed out loud when I read that the Daily Star was calling it a ‘kinky bondage twist’. It’s even more ridiculous than their ‘love loft’ and ‘sex den’ that never materialised.

    So we are not going to get a say on who gets paired up, and it’s the usual attempt to engineer arguments from the off :down:

    I can already see this as a total fail

    This could easily be disastrous – pairing off celebs they think will be enemies could have the opposite effect. Not sure on this one…

    Could easily go wrong, but could equally be an amazing twist. Can’t wait for the launch tonight, looking forward too seeing the housemates tied up with each other

    Is there anyone gay going in? If so ti’s guaranteed Jim Davison will be handcuffed to him

    To be honest I found the twist a bit underwhelming last night but knowing Big Brother it’ll develop into something amazing
