In the latest controversy to hit this year's line up of celebs, a picture posted on Heavy D's official Twitter account before launch show shows him and Lewis together.
The picture of the pair is captioned: "Bumped into my old pal @lewis_bloor BOOOOOOM! #TOWIE"
The new revelation follows pictures of current CBB love birds Marnie Simpson and Lewis out on a night together before the series began.
Marnie confirmed she had known Lewis before the show began but insisted that nothing happened between them.
"We’ve never even kissed or done anything," the brunette beauty said ahead of launch night. “We cuddled once and it was a little bit awkward because we’d spent the whole night talking.
“You know, when you’re drunk and you’re on a love buzz and you’re talking to someone and you’re sort of friend zone – and we tried to cuddle after and it was really weird.
“But this will be different to the last time I met him.”
Meanwhile on Friday night Channel 5 was forced to speak out over claims that the housemates had been in contact before the series and planned story lines.
It was after Chloe Khan alleged she had been sent a message by Renee Graziano via WhatsApp suggesting they start a romance in the house.
Rylan Clark-Neal responded to Chloe's coments on Bit On The Side, saying: "Before entering the Big Brother house, housemates are told to keep their housemate status confidential and Big Brother was not aware of any contact between housemates before they entered the house."
Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
