Celebrity Big Brother bosses have denied 'fix' claims surrounding Jedward's entrance.

Yes, that's right, it turns out that not *everything* is a set up.

Jedward joined the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 house in last night's live show.

The pair were a 'shock' addition to the line up, even if we did all know they were joining...

On entering the house, Jedward told host Emma Willis they hadn't been watching the show in order to go in "fresh".

The duo surprised the current housemates as they burst into a stage on the garden for a live singalong.

But some of the housemates seemed to be expecting them, with James Jordan announcing their arrival before it happened.

Cue cries of a 'fix' from some viewers.

Channel 5 have insisted that the housemates genuinely weren't aware of Jedward's entrance before they appeared in the garden.

With the pair widely rumoured to be taking part in this year's All Star series, their arrival wasn't exactly unpredictable so it's no surprise that some of the cast were expecting them.

The twin duo, who first appeared on The X Factor in 2009, originally took part in the Celebrity Big Brother line up in 2011.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Love them or hate them, Jedward are compulsive viewing.

“And while some of the housemates are going to be familiar with them and what they’re like, the chances are the Americans will be in for a shock."

The source added: "It’s going to be great to see them getting to know Speidi – they think they’re the power duo of the house, but that could quickly change.”

Jedward join the other 15 celebrities on this year's line up, made up of a mix of All Stars and New Stars.

All Stars on the line up are American couple Speidi, ex Strictly pro James Jordan, model Jasmine Waltz, Austin Armacost, Loose Women regular Coleen Nolan, model Nicola McLean and Calum Best.

Meanwhile, new stars are musician Ray J, model Bianca Gascoigne, actor James Cosmo, X Factor USA finalist Stacy Francis, 90s DJ Brandon Block, footballer Jamie O'Hara and Angie Best.

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 continues nightly on Channel 5.
