Celebrity Big Brother housemates Julie Goodyear and Cheryl Fergison were given a surprise task on tonight's launch show.
The two soap stars were the first into the house this evening, and were called to the Diary Room by Big Brother.
Big Brother told them: "Big Brother wants to see what formidable drama Queens you are and wants you to turn Big Brother into a soap for the next 90 minutes."
The pair were given an earpiece each that would allow Big Brother to feed directions to the group.
"Big Brother wants to see drama, tears and tantrums," Big Brother added.
The duo were told they need to keep the task a secret from the other celebrity housemates set to enter the house later tonight.
The first instruction was for Cheryl to take fellow new housemate Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino aside and tell her that Julie had had an affair with her ex-boyfriend!
Later, Julie had to approach Rhian Sugden and compare her to Corrie's troubled barmaid Raquel Watts.
Cheryl then had cry over Julie's made up affair to MC Harvey, with Big Brother telling her to cry on his shoulder.
For their final secret mission, the pair had to have a blazing row about Julie's made up affair, with Julie being told to throw a drink over Cheryl!
