Celebrity Big Brother 2014 housemates to be handcuffed together in launch night twist

Rylan Clark and Emma Willis (Big Brother 2014)

Tonight's Celebrity Big Brother 2014 launch twist will see the housemates paired up and handcuffed together, it's been claimed.

Bosses previously teased that this month's show would launch with the biggest twist yet.

And according to the Daily Star, it'll all start before even a single housemate steps inside the house.

Each of the housemates who are on the Celebrity Big Brother 2014 line up will enter the house with a partner.

Naturally, the pairings have been chosen specifically in a bid to cause conflict, romance and just plain trouble.

"Every pairing is deliberate. There will be two people handcuffed together who we know will hate each other instantly," an insider told the newspaper this morning. “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.”

There is more to the twist however, with one selected couple being given a special task that will impact how the rest of the three-week series goes.

“The launch night twist usually has implications for the first eviction," the source added. “But what else will it involve and how long will they all be handcuffed for? You are going to have to wait and see!”

Names set for this year's Celebrity Big Brother lineup include TOWIE's Sam Faiers, comedian Jim Davidson girlfriend of ex-England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson Nancy Dell’Olio, N-Dubz rapper Dappy and soap star Alan Fletcher.

They're all set to be joined by former heavyweight boxer Evander Holyfield, Blue's Lee Ryan, Made In Chelsea's Ollie Locke, Apprentice star Luisa Zissman and American Z-lister model Jasmine Waltz.

Celeb Big Bro launches this evening on Channel 5 from 9PM with host Emma Willis.
