The pair went to the camera-free toilet in last night's show where they took off their microphones and turned on the taps.
Chatting to Shane Jenek and Andrew Brady this morning, Ashley revealed what had gone on behind closed doors.
"I got in trouble for that, though," she told the boys, suggesting Big Brother had spoken to the pair for removing their microphones.
Ashley went on: "Malika and I made a plan to get us in there because he wouldn't catch my eye. I didn't want to be really awkward and like 'Can you come and talk to me in front of everyone'."

"I put the taps on and we talked, but like without using words," she explained. "I don't think they [Big Brother] were that bothered because we spoke about it outside afterwards.
"But that was the only way I was brave enough to say everything."
Ashley then told how the pair's word-less chat went down, as she acted out a variety of hand signals to the boys.
The Made In Chelsea star was then teased after saying while she and Ginuwine finished the night with a peck on the cheek, there had been "no French kissing yet"
"'Yet'? Oooh!" reacted Andrew.
