Ex lovers Nikki Grahame and Pete Bennett reunited on Big Brother

Big Brother star Nikki Grahame has had a surprise reunion in the house with her ex Pete Bennett as part of the show’s Time Warp week task.

Nikki, 33, couldn’t hide her excitement at seeing her old flame, who won series 7 of the show in 2006 during which he and Nikki began a romance in the house.

Pete, 33, made a spectacular entrance sporting a sequinned jacket and a purple Mohawk hairstyle and danced around Nikki trying to get her attention, although as part of the task she had to remain 'frozen' and not respond. He put on red lipstick and planted a big smacker on her cheek.

Pete said to Nikki: “Basically, what I was gonna say is, ‘How are you doing? I’m back!’ Nice to see you, man! Yeah! What, you’re not gonna say hello?

WOWZERS! @MrPeteBennett is Back and Nikki's not allowed to react. #BBUK #BBTimeWarp

“Oh, you’ve found another man, have you? Oh that’s nice, innit, eh?”

Pete and Nikki dated for just one month in 2006 after meeting on the reality TV show. But they have remained friends, as pictures posted on Pete’s Instagram account in 2014 show.

Meanwhile, the sparks that have been flying between Big Brother series 8 winner Brian Belo and current housemate Jade Lynch reached fever pitch in the house last night when they shared a kiss.

The pair have been flirting and decided to seal their love by hiding in bed underneath a duvet and sharing an intimate kiss – shocking the other housemates.
