Celebrity Big Brother 2014 housemates 'get prompts from producers'

There's another Celebrity Big Brother 2014 controversy brewing after it's been revealed producers have been entering the house.

An unfortunately timed shot from the camera runs on spin-off programme Bit On The Side at the weekend showed a crew member in the house alongside the celebs holding up cue cards.

The female task team member was seen holding up a sign (the contents of which were not shown) to Ollie Locke and Sam Faiers as they took part in Saturday night's Talent Show.

While it was part of a task it does still go against the fundamental rule of Big Brother that the housemates have no contact with the outside world, including other people.

A spokesperson for Channel 5 commented: “Sometimes the task team enters the Big Brother house but they don’t communicate with housemates.

“Ollie and Sam were taking part in an improvised reality scene and as part of this they were provided with storylines to react to.”

Some viewers complained about being misled by the show after believing that the reality telly pair had come up with the scene themselves, with one tweeting: "Annoyed. Here's Me thinking it was honest and well planned by them."

Ollie and Sam went on to win the contest, which was decided by judges Jim Davidson, Luisa Zissman and Linda Nolan.

Or at least, that's what we were told.
