In fact it's been claimed that they've been friends for years.
Ellie, who previously appeared on ITV2 reality series Ibiza Weekender, entered the house alone but Kieran is taking part alongside his employer, Rebecca Jane.
While we know about Kieran and Rebecca's connection, his link to Ellie hasn't been revealed on the show.
However a mutual friend of the pair's told The Sun newspaper: “Ellie and Kieran have been pals for about two or three years.
“The way they acted so unfamiliar with one another when they entered the house was really strange – they definitely know each other.”
It seems as though Ellie may have been far too distracted by Lotan Carter to pay attention to Kieran.
Ellie hasn't hidden her feelings for Dreamboys stripper Lotan and was again fawning over him in the house yesterday.
"Look at that sexy beast," Ellie told Kayleigh Morris as eyed up Lotan from the bedroom. "I think he's really nice and in the outside world I'd never get the chance to get so close... to get to live with somebody who looks like that.
"I know he's just a flirty person, but he held my hand last night, I was like 'Ahhh! He touched me!'"
However Kayleigh didn't seem too impressed.
"He wouldn't be my type," she said, "There would probably be no one in here I would fancy if I was single."
